A Home Lockout Is No Sweat When You Call Us!

 

As we know, life is full of unexpected situations. No matter how well-organised and collected you are, life can always surprise you and it usually does in the worst possible moments. Being locked out of your home or office is just one of these kind of embarrassing and often upsetting situations that happen when you least expect them, and when you have absolutely no time to deal with them.

Home lockout can happen to anybody

 

You have probably heard home lockout stories many times. Someone left the house for just one moment, to get the mail or newspaper in the morning, and the door closed behind them leaving them on the doorstep in their pyjamas and flip-flops. Or they rushed out of the house for work busy with the day ahead and came back to a shut door and realization that they had not taken their key… You might think no such thing can ever happen to you. But home lockouts actually happen more often than you imagine, and it’s not as embarrassing as it may sound, nor does it have to be as annoying. There are professional emergency locksmith services you can call to deal with these kind of situations quickly and efficiently.

 

What to do in a lockout situation

So if you do happen to find yourself in a home lockout situation, do not panic. There are a few steps to take to resolve the problem quickly. What you should not do is to try to pry your door open or break down the door locks by yourself. What you might do is to go around you house and check if one of the low-placed windows are open, however trying to get in to your home through a half-open window might also be dangerous, and it is certainly not recommended for people with physical injuries or poor physical shape. You can fall or strain a muscle, which can bring even more distress than simply being locked out.

 

Breaking into your own house is definitely not something we would recommend. Apart from possible physical injury, it can also end up with damaging your property and facing more costs than calling a professional locksmith services.

 

If there are no ways of entering the house safely, and you’ve decided not to risk damaging your door locks with reconstructing one of the TV crime series scenes, then you should definitely call emergency locksmith services and ask for assistance. The lines are open 24/7, so you should not have any problems contacting us. If you don’t have your mobile phone on you, ask a neighbour or a passer-by to make the phone call. When talking to the locksmith on the phone, make sure to let him or her know that this is an emergency home lockout situation, so they can react and send professionals fast to your home. You might be stressed or upset, so don’t forget to give the team the right address and any directions that might help them find your house quickly. If the situation is more serious, say there are small children locked inside, you can also call the police for assistance. However, if this is more of a I-locked-my-keys-in-the-trunk kind of situation, a team of skilled locksmiths is all you really need.

How to avoid home lockout in the future

Once you get your service done, the locksmith can inform you about the precautionary steps you might consider in order to be prepared for another home lockout. You can get a spare key and give it to someone you trust, and who lives nearby. It can be a friend or a trusted neighbour. You can also hide the key somewhere around the house, beware however that this might be a bit dangerous, too. Professional burglars often do know where to find those secret hiding places. Definitely don’t choose a spot anywhere near the door. Find a place only you and other household members know about. Make it as hard as possible for potential intruder to find it. However, leaving your key around the house is never 100% safe.

 

Our locksmiths can also offer a keyless door opening system that would operate on a combination lock, so there will be no more lost or locked-in key problems. You don’t have to worry about loosing your key and getting a replacement key set, you don’t need to carry them around and you eliminate almost completely the problem of lockout. But when a home lockout does happen with these electrical systems, there is no other solution than to call a professional locksmith services to get it fixed and open your front door.
