In some cases, you might try to find a way back into the house or apartment by going in through an open window or open back door. However, it is very rare that these solutions are safe; you can hurt yourself and end up in even more trouble. Also, never try to pick your door locks on your own or force the door to get back in. This may look easy in the movies, but really, it is not safe and you need skills to do it properly, especially in case of the modern technologies used for some locks now. So if no easily accessible window is open, don’t try your luck and just call for professional assistance.


Usually, in a home lockout, you'll need a residential locksmith to pick the door locks and then re-key or replace them. When you get your door locks replaced, you will be given a new set of keys. Whereas, if the door lock only needs re-keying, the locks will stay the same, but you will get a replacement key. Consider getting a duplicate key cut as well. A duplicate key can be hidden in a safe spot around the house or kept by a friend or neighbor you trust, so the next time you find yourself locked out of your house, you will save time and money and just open the door with the extra key, instead of changing door locks or getting replacement keys for the whole family. Alternatively, you can ask the locksmith to install a combination lock on your door, which does not need a key at all. These systems work well for people living with their families, as all you guys need to do is to memorize the combination and the door unlocks. These door locks can be also connected to a more comprehensive security system. Ask our locksmith for the details.
