What to Do When You’re Locked Out of Your House

by | Dec 12, 2023 | Locksmith Services, Locksmith Tips, Residential

Few things are more frustrating than heading out to go to work or to run an errand and realizing you locked the front door behind you and your keys are still inside. In the panic and stress of a lockout, you may be tempted to try and pick the door lock, open the door with a credit card, or break one of your door’s sidelites to reach in and unlock the door. But instead of attempting a hasty and possibly dangerous DIY option to get back inside, we recommend you take a few deep breaths and assess the situation.

First Things First: Check Windows and Other Doors

An immediate step you can is to check all the first-floor windows, and the back and side doors to see if any are unlocked. You may get lucky and find an unlocked window you can climb through to get back inside, but be cautious and get a neighbor or friend to help you out! Locking your keys inside is bad enough, but the last thing you need is to injure yourself by climbing through a window!

Give Us a Call and We’ll Get You Back Inside

Our locksmiths use professional tools and techniques to unlock your home’s door and get you back inside.

If you don’t find an open door or window it’s not the end of the world because the mobile locksmiths at Nonstop Locksmith are here to help with our professional 24/7 lockout service. Give us a call at 445-249-7099 and let us know what your situation is. We’ll then ask a few specific questions about the door and lock so we can give you as accurate a quote as possible, and if you’re happy with what you hear, we’ll send a technician to your home no matter the time of day or night!

To help with your peace of mind in such a stressful situation our locksmith will arrive in a branded company vehicle wearing a branded shirt and will present their credential so you can confirm they are Nonstop Locksmith employees. Once the meet and greet is over, our technician will get straight to work examining your door and its lock so they can decide the best plan of attack.

Next, the technician will explain what the various options are for unlocking the door, how long each option typically takes, and what (if any) possible damage each method may cause. We’ll then repeat the pricing you were quoted over the phone to make sure you are fully informed. We pride ourselves on our honest and transparent communication and pricing and we will always do our best to ensure your total satisfaction!
