Locked out of your home? (661) 210-1182
When you are locked out of your home, one of the first things you can do is ask for help. Depending on your situation, if you live with a roommate, can they come home and let you in? If you rent a place, try reaching out to your landlord. They will usually have a copy of your house key and might be able to let you back in. If you absolutely need to get back into your home, however, then you may want to call a locksmith as soon as possible.
First things first, Look for A Spare Key
A spare key is one of those things that never seems like a huge deal until you need it. If you’ve ever lost your keys, had them stolen, or locked yourself out of your house or car, you know how difficult and embarrassing it can be trying to get your door open. So, how would you open your car door without a key? And what about if you’re locked out of your house? Here are a few workarounds to help you get back in when you’re locked out.
Try Picking the Lock Yourself
An old trick to opening the door is to try and Jimmy the lock bolt with a card or rectangular object. Lockpicking only works on spring bolts, the kind usually found on standard-issue doorknobs. If your door has a deadbolt lock on it, it will not budge under the force of a card. To attempt to pick the lock with your card, start by choosing a card you won’t mind possibly destroying. Use a laminated card as they tend to work the best due to the flexibility of the plastic.
You would first insert the card between the frame and the door at the point where the latch is located. You would then hold the card perpendicular to the door and start pushing and wriggling the card. Keep in mind that while you push, start bending the card away from the doorknob to slide the latch back and away from the door jam. Try pushing your weight against the door while you bend the card.
