Hide a key ideas?

No, I haven't. Important things like house keys are not optional carries for me. If I'm dressed, I have my wallet, house keys (2), cash, knife, car remote, and a pen. Non-essential keys, etc., stay in a drawer by the door.
My DW works the way you do, though, and she's regularly looking for things she doesn't have now, but sometimes does, but she switched bags, or is wearing pants with no pockets, or some such thing. Subject for another day.

No, my DS interior locking lever is deeply recessed beside the door handle and requires a positive force to move it. And, the whole area is shielded by the screen door assembly. A person could accidentally bump it all day with no effect.

Most every camper has the same setup. I never felt the need to use both locks at a campground.
