Top Ways to Unlock a Door During A Lockout Emergency?

Posted on Mar 4th, 2020

We all have been in a situation at one time or another where we have been locked out of our homes. So, what do you do when you’re locked out? Well, the best way to deal with a lockout situation is to get in touch with a Emergency Locksmith in Perth to help you out. 

But if you’re looking for another alternative, then here are some things you can try:

Own a lock picking set

A basic set of lock-picking tools is not that expensive. Think of it as a one-time investment which can save you hundreds of dollars from calling locksmiths near you in Perth. It is advisable that you keep this set in your car, so when you get locked out of your house, you can access the lock picking set from your car. Fair warning though, if you are inexperienced, you can end up causing more damage to your lock and door than helping the situation.

Use paperclips

Using a couple of paperclips together can activate the pin systems in a spring-loaded lock, if you get the correct combination by trial and error. Obviously, this method is not as effective as using the lock picking set, but it’s worth a try. If you do not have paper clips, bobby pins can do the job as well. Just don’t get your hopes up. Picking a lock is not easy to do, which is why we strongly recommend you hire a Residential Locksmith in Perth for the job.

Try using a butter knife

A butter knife or any other solid metal knife or nail file with similar thickness and shape can be used to attempt to unlock your door by forcing the lock open. Again, there’s a high risk of you damaging or even breaking your lock/door, so keep that in mind before attempting this DIY.

Honestly, you’ll be better of hiring an Experienced Locksmith to handle your lockout situation. Not only will they be able to resolve the issue quickly, they can also do it without damaging your door or lock. Hiring a Locksmith will cost you lesser than what you will have to pay if you end up damaging your lock or door in your DIY attempt.
