So now, like you, I lock up and return the key to the Supra box, especially fun when you then realize you left your Supra pad in the now locked house. We live and learn.
We had this happen over a dispute of someone tracking mud into one of our listings. The 2nd agent was able to claim they never entered the home when I knew they were the quilty party.

I always return the Supra key holder with the key into the Supra and make the next agent remove it with their electronic key.

I always put the key back in the lockbox - if they're a legitimate agent, they'll be able to get it out easily enough. But I learned CYA long ago.

Or when we leave the key card in the house WITH your cell phone on a preview. Ugh!

I wear a hip pack when I go on showings, use my D-key, then put it back in its little pocket in the pack BEFORE I unlock the door. My phone is also in the pack, and the pack is firmly attached to my body. That's not going to happen to ME again!

At another forum I go to, one of the posters was selling their house. She mentioned that when she showers (or doesn't want anyone in the house) she opens the lock box and takes the key out. I swear my mouth hit the floor. I couldn't believe an agent would actually give their code out. The OP said that why shouldn't she have the code, it was her house key in the box.

We have a do not disturb code for the homeowner in our sentrilock system. It just freezes out anyone else from opening the key compartment until the owner rekeys the code in.
