Top Tips: What To Do If You Find Yourself Locked Out

Getting locked out is one of those situations that we never want to be in, and don’t really foresee it ever happening to us – it only ever happens to other people, right? As a result, we often don’t put a plan in place if we do find ourselves keyless and unable to get in.

These handy tips will run through what you should and shouldn’t do in the event of being locked out – and a few bits of advice on how to make yourself prepared, too!

1. Don’t Try And Force Your Way In!
This is the last thing you want to do. Whether you try and force your way in through your front door, break a window or climb over your fence to get in through the back, you’ll not only arouse suspicion but you could cause expensive damage to your property.

You could also cause damage to your front door or the lock, which will make it much harder (and more expensive) for a professional locksmith to rectify.

2. Call On Relatives With Keys, Or Keep A Spare Securely Hidden
If possible, you really don’t want to have to force your way in. If any neighbours or friends and relatives living close by have a spare key, then see if you can get them to help let you in – you should always try and gain regular access if you can.

You might also keep a spare key hidden by your front door in the event of getting locked out, but be sure to use a modern and secure storage box with a combination lock. Otherwise, you are literally handing intruders the keys to your home if they find it hidden under a plant pot.
