What to Do If You Get Locked Out of Your Home

There aren’t many things more annoying than getting locked out of your own house. After all, you pay a lot of money to live there, so you should have access to it. The good news is that there are a few tricks you can try before calling Locksmiths Blackheath or being forced into breaking a window.

One of the first things you should do is check all your other doors and windows. You may have been absent-minded enough to lock yourself out, but there’s also a chance that you forgot to secure one of your other doors. If this is the case, you’ll be able to open that door with a little more work, but don’t force it; you could damage the door or injure yourself.

Another thing you should do is call anyone who might have a spare key. If you gave a friend or family member a key when you went away last year, for example, they might be able to come over and unlock your door for you. When you decide it’s time to call Locksmiths Blackheath, go to All City Locksmiths.

If you don’t have any spare keys, or if the people who do have them aren’t available, you should try to get in through the window. You can wedge a card between the lock and frame, or you can hit the locking mechanism with a tool (like the end of a screwdriver) to break it free but this will obviously cause damage which could prove costly.
