What to do if you’re locked out and need a locksmith
We’ve all done it. We’ve all locked ourselves out either by locking our keys inside the house or losing them. It happens to the best of us, so what do you do if you’re locked out and need a Leicester emergency locksmith?
Tell people (yes, really)
If you’re locked out and you feel a little exposed, especially at night, text or call a family member, your partner, or a friend to let them know about your situation. This lets people close to you know that you’re a little vulnerable. They may offer shelter or come and pick you up. Do this especially if you’re locked out at night or after a night out, because you’re more vulnerable in the dark or a bit tipsy. If a friend can stay on the phone to you, this is a deterrent for anyone who may approach you.
Don’t stand out in the open, especially if it’s raining or windy or dark. Standing out in the rain will only make you uncomfortable, but in the dark you’re vulnerable to cars and other people. Shelter near your home – your porch, a neighbour’s house, or even a lit bus shelter – to make sure you’re either near your property, safe indoors, or in a lit area where you can be seen.
Get back in your car
If you’re locked out of your property but you have the option to get back in your car, do this. This accomplishes the shelter part of our locksmith safety tips, and it makes sure you’re safe. Lock the doors whilst you’re inside and at least you may be able to have the radio on.
