Getting locked out of your home or business is an unfortunate inconvenience that can happen to anyone. However, there are several steps you can take before calling a professional locksmith. Here’s what you can do:
- Contact Your Neighbor.
If you’ve given a spare key to your neighbour, now is the time to give them a call. You can also ask to stay at their place while you wait for assistance.
- Make Contact with a Relative or a Friend.
If you have given a spare key to a family member or friend, you can contact them for help. They might be able to assist you in getting access to your property.
- Look for any Open Doors or Windows.
If you’re locked out, check if any doors or windows are open that you may have forgotten to lock. However, if there’s no entryway available, don’t try to force your way in as it may cause damage.
- Make a Call to your Property Manager.
If you’re renting your property, your property manager may have spare keys to help you gain access. However, if it’s outside of office hours, you may need to call a locksmith at your own expense.

Preparing for Future Emergencies
To prevent future lockouts, here are some things you can do:

- Switch to a digital lock that doesn’t require a physical key.
