If you are ever locked out of your home, your office or your vehicle your first thought is probably “how could this happen?” and following it, is probably “I need to get back in”. Your mind is probably racing trying to think of all the different ways you could possibly break into your own home. You think maybe ill break the window or maybe ill try to climb up the fire exit. The truth is unless you are an experienced locksmith yourself; you should be calling a professional locksmith to help you get back in.
If you decide to try and pick the lock yourself you might actually damage the lock and it will need complete replacing. When calling a professional locksmith, if your lock is pick able, he will be able to open it in as little as a few minutes. Here you just saved time and money. You could have gotten quite frustrated after damaging your lock, and now having to go out buy a new one is even more annoying. Going to the hardware store and trying to choose a lock that would be a proper fit for your front door is no easy task. Firstly, you need to make sure the lock is the proper sized. If you accidentally buy a lock that is too big, you most likely will need to do a fresh installation. Fresh installation is a whole other story, again, intended only for professional locksmiths. Even if you choose the right sized lock, you have to make sure it’s the right security level. You would not want to buy a basic doorknob that is meant for a washroom door and install it on your front door. This lock would not be very secure and no locksmith would recommend or ever put that type of lock on your front door. When you call a locksmith, he will be able to show you all different types of locks that will suit your front door and will secure it properly. He can advise you on which ones would be the most secure and show you all their features.
The same idea goes for trying to break a window in order to get back into your home or car. The damage you make will end up costing you a whole lot more money than calling a locksmith. When calling a locksmith they usually get to your location in as little as 20 minutes and will get you back in to your home or vehicle in a couple of minutes. You get back in, pay the locksmith and your on your way to continue the rest of your day. Now imagine you break a window in your house. You will most likely not be able to replace that window on your own, hence having to call a professional to your home anyways. You will also most likely have to wait a day to get someone to help you out, unlike locksmiths who work 24/7 round the clock. So now you are back in your home, with a broken window, less secured as now anyone can freely come in and probably cold from the air coming in.
