Default Where to hide a spare key?

im going to crawl under my truck tonight and find a good spot to hide a spare in case i locked myself out and secure it....ive never done this before and im kind of hesitant to do it cuz of the area i live in but i will make sure it is completely hidden and secured, and might put it in one of those hideakey lockboxes

what is a good place to stash it?

im always very careful about not locking myself out, anytime i ever get out of my truck without taking the keys out which is rare i roll the window down all the way

but still things happen

its a 2500 HD.....any ideas?

I edited your post so it made more sense, I understood that you were talking about a key, but it took me awhile to figure it out. no worries though.

I keep a spare set of keys in one of the little magnetic boxes that they sell at autozone for $1.50. I have it stuck inside one of the bed rails inside the rear wheelwell. I used to have it inside of one of the tubes on my hitch, but I had to move it when I put the duals on.

If you tell everyone here where it's at . . .

Can someone really say it's hidden ?

Just get a combo hitch cap.

Boat & RV shops sell em'

About the most secure place to stuff one of the lock boxes in a high theft area is up inside the hanging spare tire. Most people wont bother to crawl around on the ground and dig around up in there to look for it..it draws to much attention. inside of fenders or inside the front or rear bumper is the most looked in places.
Just a thought about hiding things..I wrap a tube of lock antifreeze in a paper towel and put it inside my gas filler cap cover. So when your locks freeze, and if you live in an area like I do (buffalo NY) they will..it is easy to get to and if someone takes it your only out a buck. But when you need it, it is priceless!! Just a thought, it has worked for me MANY times.

I've only got one key to my bloody truck, so I'm spared the difficulty of where to hide another one.

Although, if I lose this bad boy, I'm completely and quite thoroughly F***ed aren't I?
