It happens to the best of us. You get home from work, school, or a night out, and you realize that you’ve locked yourself out of your house. You don’t have your keys, and you don’t know what to do.

Don’t panic! There are a few things you can do to get back into your house. Here are some tips:

What to Do If You Are Locked Out

  1. Try to find a spare key. If you have a spare key hidden somewhere, now is the time to find it. Check under doormats, flowerpots, and other obvious places.
  2. Call a locksmith. If you can’t find a spare key, call a locksmith. They will be able to come to your home and open the door for you.
  3. Wait for someone to come home. If you’re home alone, and you don’t have a spare key or a way to call a locksmith, you can wait for someone to come home. If you have a roommate, they may have a spare key. You can also wait for your spouse, partner, or other family member to come home.

Tips for Preventing Getting Locked Out

  1. Make copies of your keys. Make sure you have at least two copies of your keys. One copy should be kept in a safe place at home, and the other copy should be kept with a trusted friend or family member.
  2. Hide a spare key outside. If you don’t have a safe place to keep a spare key at home, you can hide it outside. Make sure to hide it in a place that is not obvious, such as under a rock or in a flowerpot.
  3. Get a keypad lock. Keypad locks are a great way to prevent getting locked out. With a keypad lock, you don’t have to worry about losing your keys.
  4. Get a door alarm. A door alarm is a great way to deter burglars. If someone tries to break into your home, the alarm will go off and alert you.

I hope these tips help you if you ever find yourself locked out of your home.
