- Same place – If you have a designated place to store something, it makes it a lot harder to lose it. A bowl, a drawer, or hooks make great places to store keys. If you can get your parents in the habit of dropping the keys there every time they enter the house, you will have fewer frantic calls.
- Beeper or tracker – Thanks to miniaturization, a key chain can double as a tracker. Some trackers react to claps or whistles. If your parents lose their keys, all they have to do is clap and the key chain will start beeping loudly, letting them know exactly where they are. Another type of tracker has GPS, so you can look it up and at least tell them within a few meters where their keys are.
- Attachment – A third option is to make the keys stick to something important, like a wallet or purse. If the keys are tethered, it makes it that much harder to lose them. An automatically retracting line keeps the keys accessible while still connected and is available at nearly any office supply store.
