21. Skip Making House-Key Copies

Hiding the spare set under a rock or having multiples floating around leaves your house vulnerable to thieves.

If the high-tech look doesn't mesh with your front entry's style, install it on a side or back door. Kwikset SmartCode Electronic Deadbolt, about $100; homedepot.com
