Default Where do you hide your spare golf cart key ???

Hello-
Okay, I will admit it and state that I always loose/misplace my golf cart keys.....

Any suggestions on where on the golf cart a spare set of keys can be hidden for the next time I misplace my keys ???

I keep my golf cart key on my regular key chain with my mail box key, front door key and my dog tags. I don't have my car keys on there since my car has push button start, I have those on the key FOP and only carry that when I driving the car. Take your Yamaha key off the little rubber ring and put it on your regular key ring. I've had it that way now for 8 years. If I'm ever in an accident, my dog tags have my blood type, name and SSN. My second key is in the garage, so if I need, somebody could drive it to me if necessary but never found that to be needed.

"Almost" agree. Most cart keys are interchangeable anyway so the thieves are probably armed with a few different makes of keys and ready to go.

The car key fob is on a lanyard. My house and mailbox keys are on another lanyard. Both are placed in a nice sculpted dish on the hall table with my sunglasses.
Whenever I leave the house I just grab the right lanyard.
When I get a golf cart the key will be on another lanyard (different color).

I hide my key in one of those fake rocks. I put it exactly 3'-4" from the front door along side of the sidewalk. But don't tell anybody.

Keep it in your wallet or in a small medicine bottle in your bra.

Oh, I didn’t realize OP was a lady. I sometimes put the keys on a nice necklace. Or if I don’t want ithe keys seen, just slip the lanyard under the clothes.
I need both hands free to paint and don’t carry a purse, sometimes have no pockets (womens’ clothing designers ). I have an Apple cellular watch and that’s it.

Wife keeps all the 'stuff' in her bag.
I lost the house key about 30 years ago.
I am careless, not to be trusted with anything of value or importance.
I don't have a worry in the world!!

Custom Seats with arm rests have a zipper for removable. Keep it there. With a regular golf cart seat, tuck it under the fabric of the underside of the seat.

I didn't know either, I thought jcvdd1 was a Jean-Claude Van Damme fan.
