Got Locked Out Of Your House?

Everyone forgets things. It is no surprise that there are some people who frequently can’t remember where they put their keys, wallets or even phones. As a result of everything having an appto “find” tit, a lack of an app to find something such as a lost wallet has become a real difficulty.

What to do?

If you ever find yourself locked out of your apartment, first thing to do is not to panic. There are also several steps you can take such as contacting a family member or a friend. If is it too much of a hassle or if you do not have the phone handy as well, best thing is to talk to a neibhour. It is not impossible to use a lose door or a window to get in to the house, but always remember there could be people watching and you don’t want to give ideas to a thief lurking by. The best thing is to call an emergency locksmith Adelaide and the police or some such security personnel. Always keep a backup list of contacts in your phone or on the handbag. Now with the new technology it is even easier if you have something like that uploaded in to a shared drive which you can access from anywhere with internet. So even ifyou have lost the phone and the keys if you go to a neibhour’ s house and ask for internet access you can use their phone to call someone needed at that hour.

Try a trick

You may have seen many tricks tried in movies and TV shows. Even though there is still a danger in trying them out yourself, you can probably do one of the below. Do not forget to have someone as backup, call a friend, talk to a neibhour and if it is a policeperson or a security guy who trusts you, it is even better. Make sure any passers-by or watchers from windows knows that you are not trying to break in! you can try to either remove the door knob if it is a door with a knob or try a plastic card on the lock. Of course, you cannot just remove a knob by pulling at it. So you will definitely need another person’s help there at least with tools such as screwdrivers, hammers and nails etc.

Use your credit card for something good

Credit cards have brought no joy to us! A perfect way to get rid of it maybe trying a locked door. Even an identification card can be used for this but we know a credit card is worth destroying. Try to wedge itbetween the frame and the door, at the same time when you push at and wobble the handle with hard force. If not, try an alternative method of using the credit or ID card to hit the mechanism of the lock; press it then with the credit card to try to unlock it. This act is a bit tricky than the other and can be lengthy, however it can be done as a final attempt or if your friend or neighbor is experienced at picking locks! Anyway it is always better just to call locksmiths to sort this out without harming the door.
