5 Tips to Prevent House Lockouts

Are you wondering why you can’t manage to enter your house? Well, there are many reasons for a house lockout. It could be because you simply forgot the key inside or if suddenly the key isn’t working. We are fully aware that this situation can be very upsetting because it happens for one second due to a lack of attention.

But you don’t need to worry! We at Locksmith Melbourne can come right away to unlock your door.

Moreover, we are here to make sure you will get the most professional and the fastest locksmith service. Our technicians have many experience so they can pick any lock you have! Just give us a call and we will come and help you to get into your house.

Also, there are lots of things you can do so you won’t need to order a locksmith service to unlock your door. Therefore, We at Locksmith Melbourne wrote down a small list of tips to prevent a house lockout:

1. Prevent a house lockout by Changing your doorknob to a keyless doorknob

We highly suggest you change it, because the only way to lock yourself out of your house (unless you lost your key outside), is by locking the doorknob from the inside and leaving your house without a key. In most cases, we don’t even notice it’s locked when we leave the house for a minute to do something outside. And then when we come back we realize we can’t enter our home. By changing the front door doorknob to a keyless doorknob, the only way we can lock the house is by using a key to lock the deadbolt from the outside. Therefore you can never forget it.

As for the security aspect, having 2 locks on the door is better than one. We know that The doorknob hardly adds to the security of our home, compared with the deadbolt, which is the more secure component of the two. So, if you worry because your house will be less secured, just add another deadbolt to the door. This way, with 2 deadbolts and a keyless doorknob – you are safe both from burglars and you can’t lock yourself outside.

2. Instead of hiding a key in an unsafe place, hide it in a lockbox

Many people hide a key outside their home in case they will lock themselvs outside. That way, even if they do, they have a spare key that they kept outside. This is basically a good idea. However, It is not very smart because someone can find your  key and break into your house. It might come as a surprise but most burglaries involve no forced entry. In fact, they manage to break in thanks to a key you kept outside. Burglars are well aware of all the places that people keep their keys in.

Therefore, Instead of hiding your keys in a place that anyone can reach them, we suggest you hide them in a lockbox. Moreover, you should make sure anyone living in the house knows the combination. So, that way there’s always a key outside in case you need it and it’s well protected from intruders. Some people choose to place their lockbox somewhere hidden. it’s needless to say, a hidden lockbox is more secure than a visible one.

3.Give a spare key to a neighbor you trust or a nearby family member

Another thing you can do is to give a spare key to one of your neighbors or a nearby friend. Giving a key to your neighbor is a good way to ensure you have another way into your house in case you forgot or lost your key. But remember, doing so is only a good idea when you know the person well and truly trust them.

Furthermore, a neighbor with a key is not only good in cases you got locked outside. But also in case you need their help with something in the house when you’re far away. Moreover, This way does not guarantee 100% you will not be locked outside, because you will need your neighbor to be at his house.

4. Keep a spare house key in the car

This will only work if you keep your house and car keys separated. Separating your house and car keys can be a good strategy to prevent a house lockout. We highly suggest you keep a spare house key in the car and a spare car key in the house. As long as you’ll have one of the two, you can never be locked out of the other. When you separate your one key chain into two different keys, there’s a smaller chance you’ll forget to take both and as long you have one, you have access to the other.

However, there’s a big risk, using that method. because, if someone will break into your car he will get potential access to your house as well. Therefore, you need to make sure the key is well hidden inside of the car in a place an intruder won’t be able to find.

5. The best way to prevent House Lockout - Change your locks to smart locks

Some people might prefer not to use this way because it can be quite expensive. However, a smart lock is a good solution in case you tend to lose things like keys. By using a smart lock there is no chance you could lose the key and be locked outside. Besides, smart locks can come in many different forms. Some of the common ones are keypad combination locks, fingerprint locks, and even eye-scanning locks. Moreover, another advantage of having a smart lock on your door is keeping your house extra safe from burglars. Although a smart lock might come with a higher price tag, you should keep in mind that it will probably be cheaper instead of ordering a locksmith every time you forgot the key.

Therefore, buying a smart lock may save you money in the long run. One important thing you need to remember if you decide to upgrade to a smart lock is to be aware of the battery charge in your lock. If the lock runs out of battery, your only option to get in will be to use the manual lock mechanism with a key. But,  you will probably don’t have it with you if you didn’t know the lock ran out of battery. Therefore, suggest you pick a lock that alerts you whenever the battery is running low.
