Dang. I wish I could send a brick from my droid...
Anyway, my solution is to go get a little stainless steel picture hanging wire from the craft store. They should have it quite thick, 045 to 067 is usually common. They're also nice enough to have made it dead soft for you. Get under your car, find a hole in the unibody well away from any moving parts. Loop some of the stainless wire through it and then twist the ends together like some kind of badassed tactical twist-tie. Then put a spare key on a key ring and wind the key ring onto the loop of wire you attached to the car. Cheap and HIGHLY durable, as well as easy to remove in a pinch. I've had one strapped to my car this way for the last 10 years and 200,000mi. And those were some HARD fought miles, so that thing saw lots of abuse. Still no rust on the key and it starts the car just fine. Key ring is rusty as fuck and has been replaced several times. The chrome plating gets sand blasted off pretty quick and then the road salt gets to it.

I would only think of doing this if I kept the ignition key separate. It is too easy for an opportunistic thief the see a key ring dangling from the ignition, and if you have house keys hanging too, they have your address in the glovebox.

Now I have no idea how to break into my own car there are times I could have used this information. One of the worst things that happens to me is I have gotten into the habit of using the keys to lock to door to use the inside lock switch is asking for disaster. So I get out of the car find my keys which I have already thrown to the bottom of my purse and I lock the doors and drop keys back to bottom of purse. I once was with a friend. I was driving and he felt he should be helpful. We had just arrived at the destination. I brushed my hair I was going to then put the hair push down grab keys from the steering column and head inside. I jumped out of the car and shut the door and went to hit the lock button. Opps still have hair brush in hand not keys. Friend was so nice and hit the all lock on his door and so we are locked out of the car. Please don't help the driver lock the car with out asking do you have the keys or just don't do it.
I have learned I have ADHD didn't know this and ADHD has your brain running so fast some information is not processed by long term memory. This is why people with ADHD lose everything it's location did not get put into the storage bank and we can not retrieve it. I say this because you will most often leave your keys in a common place so look there first. Ladies with large purses one of the hints I was given was to put a jingle bell on your key chain you can shake your purse and the jingle bell will ring letting you know they are in the purse.
