Hello everybody. I am looking for a security key safe (to attach to a wall) that a person with CP could open. There are lots of combination ones available but the gentleman I'm trying to find one for would not have the manual dexterity in his hands to open this. It's very important to him that I support him to find a solution. Does anyone have any experience with one that has worked well? Thanks in advance, Lou

    Hi @Lou79 and welcome

    What type of property does the gentleman live in ?
    I ask because I wondered if a plant pot or stone for hidding a key might be suitable

    It's for the key to the shop he wants to run. He doesn't feel confident carrying the key around with him all day so is looking for something he could attach to an indoor wall to house it and give him access for opening up and closing.

    By the very nature a safe will have some kind of lock. Does the key have to be locked away or just a safe place that he will know where it is ?
    Would a long key chain give him the security of knowing that he wont lose it ?

    A key chain is a great idea! I’ll have a chat with him in the morning. Thank you so much.

    Hi @Lou79
    Great to meet you. I live with CP and don't have the best dexterity either. I have found this model of safe, which may be worth looking at.
