Can’t Find Your Key?

One of the most frustrating things is looking for a key when you have no idea of the last place that you had it. Sometimes you end up looking in some of the weirdest places even when you know there would be no possible way for the key to be there. Ever been in one of those situations? Those searches are some of the most frustrating and overwhelming periods that you have to endure. But, wait there’s more… sometimes you end up finding the keys in your pocket or you had them in your hand all along. That’s just salt in a fresh wound. All that searching for no reason.

If you’re not that lucky, your search may not be fruitful. There are several reasons why you may be unable to find your keys.

  • You simply lost it

Knowing that the reason for you being locked out is a lost key is not very comforting. All kinds of thoughts may run through your mind while you are looking for the key or even while you wait to be let inside. What if it falls in the wrong hands? Did someone find it? Will I find it tomorrow or sometime in the future? Is it lost for real? These are just some things you may be thinking. But, with a lost key, the best thing to do is change those locks or have them rekeyed.   

  • It was stolen

If your keys were stolen because someone grabbed your bag, purse or they just stole the keys, treat it similar to lost keys. Make sure you get those locks rekeyed or changed. We’re sure that you do not want to see someone step in your house while you’re there because they used the keys that they had stolen from you. Be proactive and take preventative measures.

  • You really misplaced it and just cannot find it anywhere

Sometimes your key is only lost temporarily. Whether it is at the bottom of your handbag, stuck somewhere under your car seat, hidden in plain sight or temporarily hidden by someone, you may misplace it and find it in the very near future. But, until you find those keys, you will need to get that door opened. 

Are You Really Locked Out?

Sometimes it is really hard to believe that you are locked out. But, as unreal and surreal as it may seem, you may very well be locked out. However, there are a few cases where people think they are locked out but they are able to get inside without seeking professional help.
Don’t let the panic of the moment affect the clarity of your thoughts. It is easy to think ahead and say what you would do when you are in a situation, but once you are actually faced with the situation, those plans seem non-existent. It happens a lot to people who get locked out. Don’t fall in that statistic. If you get locked out, try really hard to think clearly. Think about other points of entry that you may be able to use or other ways that you can get inside without damaging your property.

Before you call for help, make sure that you are truly locked out. It would really be unfortunate that you spent money on a locksmith when you could have simply used a door or window nearby to (safely) enter your property.   

Handle a Lockout like a Pro

Is it really possible to handle a lockout like a pro? What does that even mean? Do you get locked out so many times that you are used to it and know what to do every time? We hope this is not you. Although we don’t want you to panic and get in frenzy when you get locked out, we certainly don’t want it to be a very regular occurrence for you either. 
But, what should you do when you realize that you are locked out? Some people will argue about the order of events but there are some things that are standard, no matter what order you do them in. 

  • Determine the urgency of the situation

Although you may be eager to get inside your home, car or business, it may not be as urgent as you had previously thought. Yes, it will be very inconvenient for you to sit around and wait on a locksmith or someone else to show up with a key, but you may not need to be inside right away. 

  • Check for your spare keys

Many people have spare keys for their locks. In fact, locks rarely come with one single key. If you have a spare key nearby, it should be quick to grab, unless you’re locked out there too. Try not keeping your spare keys inside the area that it would be needed to open. Hide it somewhere or give it to someone you can trust for safe keeping.
