Handy Tips To prevent Being Locked Out Of Your House - Gold Coast

Being locked out of the house can be a major inconvenience at best, and it’s something that’s very common. Many of us have either been in this situation ourselves, or know someone who has locked themselves out.

In this post we’ll look at some tips and contingencies just in case you do lock yourself out.

A Spare Key Is the Best Solution

If the spare key is left inside the house, then it’s of no use in the event you accidentally lock yourself out, but a spare key hidden away or kept off the premises provides the best and most convenient solution should this happen to you.

A spare key kept with someone you trust is the best place for it. Failing that, hiding a spare key away in a good, private spot where no one can see you access it is the next best bet. Hiding the spare under the front doormat or in the letterbox is not a wise option. Maybe under a pot plant at the rear of the house, or beneath a rock in the garden. Just so long as it’s not obvious and conspicuous. If it’s under a pot or a rock, be sure there are plenty of other pots or rocks in the same area so finding the key for a potential thief isn’t quick and easy.

Locked Out? What Are the Options?

If you don’t happen to have a spare key, but find yourself locked out of your house, what do you do?

Well, you could hurl a rock through the window, but that’s a rather noisy and messy solution, and probably only one you should resort to if it’s an extreme emergency situation, like the baby is locked inside, or there’s a fire.

If you lock yourself out and don’t have  spare key, or have lost the only key you have, then it’s best to call in professional locksmith services to gain access to the house and have a spare key cut for future use.
