What to do if you find yourself locked. Firstly don’t panic. Your first instinct will be to try and find a way in and why not at the end of the day who wants to pay out for a locksmith if you don’t have to. The next thing that happens in our experience is that a friend or neighbour will try and help and that can be great but be careful it could also be expensive. Sometimes we get called out to properties where people have tried to force a way in after finding themselves locked out. What we tend to find is this has caused damage to either the door, the frame, Lock, multipoint mechanism or all of them. As you can imagine this can then get expensive to put right. Our locksmith’s are highly skilled at getting into properties with the minimal amount of fuss or damage. In most cases we uses non-destructive techniques meaning there is zero damage at all. This in turn will save you ££££££’s in the long run.
