Stay Safe in Lehigh Valley Parking Garages

Easton, Bethlehem, and Allentown all have parking decks that take the hassle out of driving around trying to find street parking (most of the time.) And while they do provide a much easier place to park, they are still areas where you should stay vigilant.

Here are a few tips on parking safe in Lehigh Valley parking garages.

1. Remember Where you Park

This is easier now than ever with smartphones being so prevalent. Simply jot down where you parked in a note app or text to yourself, or better yet, take a picture of where you are to make sure you don’t waste time walking around the garage.

2. Pay Attention to Your Surroundings

Don’t text or check your phone as your own the way in or out of a parking garage. You want to make sure you not only remember where you park, but you also want to keep your eyes or ears open for things that may be going on around you, especially at night.

3. Keep Your Keys or Self Defense Device in Hand

While the odds of being attacked in a Lehigh Valley parking garage are statistically slim, you always want to be prepared. Carrying your keys in your hand not only allows you to access your car much easier, but it also gives you a weapon if you need one. This goes the same for any sort of self defense device you may carry with you, such as pepper spray. Those type of devices don’t do much if they are stuck at the bottom of your pocket or purse.

Be safe when you’re out no matter where you park and, as always, contact 24/7 Emergency Locksmith if you encounter a lockout situation. We’ll get you back on the road quickly.

Why Can’t You Open a Car Door if Someone is Locking it Explained

Courtesy jalopnik
Jalopnik recently posted an insanely interesting article about something we’ve all encountered in our lifetimes.

Have you ever tried to get into a car as someone is trying to unlock it? Have you then tried to open it again only to see that they are trying to unlock it again?

The website Jalopnik went into some pretty serious depth in a recent article explaining why this phenomenon occurs.

Take a look at a quick excerpt…

The most basic explanation possible is that pulling on the handle engages a little mechanical piece inside the door, a piece that bumps into another mechanical piece triggered by someone else trying to unlock the door. Alone, either one would do their job unimpeded. Do both at the same time and they block each other.

This sounds like it’s going to be really easy to understand, right? You have no idea how wrong you are.

Go ahead and hit up their link for a VERY in-depth look at why this occurs. It’s something that locksmiths have a fun time reading.

And, as always, please contact 24/7 Emergency Locksmith in the Lehigh Valley any time you have a lockout situation at (484) 891-1922.

The Four Best Spots in the Lehigh Valley to Get Locked Out of Your Car

No one wants to get locked out of the car. It’s not fun. It’s not funny. And, sometimes it can be downright dangerous. Whenever you’re in a lockout situation, please be sure to call 24/7 Emergency Locksmith at (484) 891-1922 at any time of the day or night and we’ll be there to help you!

All of that being said, if you do have to get locked out of your car, here are some of the places in the Lehigh Valley where the wait for your locksmith isn’t that bad.

Easton Farmers’ Market

The oldest open-air continuous farmers’ market in the nation is a great place to spend a bit of extra time if you have to. Not only is there some of the best produce in the Lehigh Valley area, but there are always some surprises, like some fabulous chicken pot pies!

Downtown Bethlehem

With so many fine dining restaurants, a nightlife that is equal parts party and conversation, and shops that offer just about everything you’re looking for, getting locked out in downtown Bethlehem isn’t THAT bad of an idea.

The Lehigh Valley Zoo

It’s a bit of a drive, but The Lehigh Valley Zoo is one of our favorite places in the area. Where else locally can you catch a giraffe feeding AND pet some goats?

The Allentown Rose Garden

Somewhat underrated, or at least under-talked-about, the Allentown Rose Garden is one of the most relaxing places to spend a quiet afternoon. Yes, you may be spending it waiting for your locksmith to come, but it could be much worse.

Be safe out there and call us if you need any help!
