Preventing getting locked out

Getting locked out of your house is always very frustrating. Whether you realise that you have left your keys inside the house as soon as you pull the door shut, or lose your keys and don’t realise that they are missing until you get home, there are various measures that can be taken to prevent this costing a lot of time and money to put right.

It is always easy to find a shop that offers key cutting, so it is worth taking the time to get a few sets of spare keys cut, and leaving them with neighbours, friends or family members that live near your house, so you can just pop round to someone to pick up a key. Be sure to leave more than one set with different people, so if someone is out of on holiday you can still go to someone to get a key.

There are many safe places that you can leave a spare set of keys. For example, you can buy fake rocks that have a space inside for a spare set of keys, and these can be placed in your garden. If you have a greenhouse or shed, there are many places that are fairly safe to hide a spare set of keys.

If the worst comes to the worst, there are always emergency locksmiths available that can come out at any time of the day or night and unlock your door.
