Pianoman locked his keys in his truck at least a dozen times in his first year with Swift. He had to become his own locksmith!

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Ok, people. Locking yourself out of your truck should be the least of your worries. (No offense to everybody who has done so.) We were told in classroom, before we ever got a truck, to get a hide out key. Schneider even cuts keys for free, so I made sure I had at least 3. I secured two to my truck just in case. Never had to use them because I went through my mental checklist every time I exited my truck. But if I ever had a senior moment, I had the hide out keys. (Unless I forgot where they were hidden).

My only fear was that I would lock myself inside the truck and have to call RA to get out. -

Oh, BTW, don't hide your spare key on your trailer. If you need to know why, maybe you shouldn't be a truck driver.

Some trucks have a different door and ignition key, so be sure you have several duplicates of the DOOR key. I have four: one stays in the ignition, one is on my regular keychain, one is zip tied under the hood in an out-of-the-way place, and one is bolted to a frame crossmember under the sleeper.
