Key boxes are small locked containers that can attach to doors or walls and hold a key to a door or a secured cabinet. Individuals often use key boxes to provide family, friends, and service suppliers with access to a locked home, or to add an extra layer of protection for the key to a gun case. Though there are several varieties of key boxes, with several different types of locking mechanisms, combination key boxes are one of the more common types.
