You may have lost your keys, but don't become a statistic

Recent crime statistics show that theft has grown into the third largest category of crime nationwide, costing all of us nearly 3 billion per year. Many thefts start simply, when a homeowner loses a purse or even just a set of car keys or house keys. Theft leads to not just a loss of assets, but also of your sense of security.

Stolen keys can overturn your life

Why can stolen keys or a lost handbag turn your life upside down? They can find your house from your licence, open your doors, take what they want, sometimes while you’re still waiting for a locksmith to get back into your car. While you wait, criminals can take what they want from your home, at leisure. If they like what they see, they may return again and again.

Losing items such as car keys, house keys, bank cards and licences, far from being merely inconvenient, can cost you money and expose your family to loss of privacy and even personal danger.

Often the door leading from the garage into the house, through poor construction or insufficient locking, presents very little challenge to a determined thief.

You can take preventative measures to help reduce your inconvenience in the event of losing your car keys or house keys.
