its affectionately known as "the Honda trick"...

in my years as a audio installer, i must have shown that trick at least once a day.. and it was always funny when people have had their Honda/Acura for many many years and never knew "the trick".. heh heh

I love that secret =) It would be way to annoying to lock the car w/the key all the time. But then again it would suck more to lock your keys inside. Thats why I put my keys in my hand as Im doing it so I can see that I have them.

Yeah, I think you just have to make a habit out of only locking the doors when you have your keys in hand. However, I've still screwed up sometimes, so I started keeping my valet key in my wallet back when I was a teenager. It's saved me many times.

I know people here disparage ebay a lot, but I fixed that problem by buying a keyless entry system from there for $30. It works well, but it's pretty basic; it doesn't even flash the lights or honk the horn. But it sure is more convenient than fumbling for the keyhole, scratching the paint, etc.
