Let's just say, I need a third key...

On a positive note, I'm pretty good at breaking into my truck now!

I'm going to put a key on a necklace just to make sure this never happens again....

This is the best idea. I always have a keyring with a key, in my pocket.

Also, I never press the lock button then close the door. Kenworths won't let you do that anyway. Always lock the door from the outside with a key.

Then there's the magnetic key box you stick onto the frame somewhere.

Oh, yeah. Swift shops will cut you a key (sometimes just from your truck number) just for the asking.

I always keep a spare in my pocket. And have two small climbing clamps hooked to it just in case I get a trailer with a chain that won't quite reach the hook.

Paul, Do yourself a favor. Just don't ever lock your Truck.

Paul, if you want to start making the big bucks, do like I do... Lock yourself in the truck!

The Volvo I just got out of was the same way, so I had gotten in the habit of locking it from the outside...or so I thought!

I'm just going to ask the shop to make me another key so I can keep one in the fuse box like I used to do. In the meantime I have part of my lockout kit hidden on the outside of my truck in case I forget my key again..
