I think we all have made the error at least once in our lives of accidentally getting locked out of our home! It can leave us standing in shame when it happens. After all, we have no idea how we are going to get back into the home if we have no spare key. And we fear what the neighbors must think if it does happen! However, There are plenty of things you can do to get back inside. In fact, here is are some things to try if you get locked out of your home.

Are the windows all shut properly?

The first thing you should do is check if all the windows are shut properly in the humble abode. After all, now it’s summer, you might have a few open during the day to let some air in. It’s often the quickest way to cool down the humble abode. Now that you have got locked out, having the windows open can be very handy. After all, you might be able to push it open enough to be able to slide back in the house. Therefore, look around the property to see if any of the windows might be open. Even if they don’t look unlocked, give them a slight nudge to see if you can get in. And if you do get in through your windows, it will save you a lot of money.


Do you have your phone?

It might be impossible to get back into your home without a helping hand. After all, you might not be an expert at breaking locks. And you might not have the strength to break down the front door. Therefore, you need someone to help you get back into your property. If you have your phone on your person, you might want to contact a family member or friend. Or if you think you need some professional help, you can also use the phone to contact a 24 hour locksmith. You can then get them to sort the locks so that you can get inside the home. And they will fit new ones, so your home is safe again. Even though it might cost you, at least new locks will be useful to keep the house protected when you are away!

Have you checked the back door?

A lot of people keep their back door unlocked when they are inside their home. After all, they don’t worry too much about safety when they are sitting inside. And if you get locked out, this could come in very useful. After all, if you can make your way into the yard, you could then get inside via the back door. It might be the case you need to try and unlock the gate to get around the back. Or if you are fit and healthy, you might even be able to climb over the gate! You can then try the back door to get back inside. And even if it’s locked, at least you can sit in the garden, so you are out of neighbor’s view to shed some embarrassment!

And remember that you can often remove a window panel without having to damage the whole thing. You just need a screwdriver, and then you can soon be back inside your home.
