The Dangers Of Old Locks

While there are many different reasons you may need a locksmith, getting locked in your home or apartment is not one that many people think of, but it could happen. Just like any other part of your home, your door knobs and locks can get old and dysfunctional. Eventually, something may go wrong in your locks, causing your door to become jammed and you to be locked inside.

While the chances of the locks of every door leading to the outside breaking at the same time is not very likely, you never know. As for apartments, many of them only have one door leading out, so it that one becomes busted, you end up locked indoors.

But with the help of 24/7 Emergency Locksmith, there is no need to panic. We can come to the rescue in the matter of a few minutes, fixing your door knobs and locks and getting you out of your home and back to your everyday life in no time!

While you may know what to do when you are locked out of your home, being locked inside is a different story. If you have tools in the home, you can try to remove the door knob and deadbolt, allowing you to get out of your home. The only problem with this, is that your home will be open to the outside world, leaving your possessions more likely to be stolen. Unless you have another way to keep people out, like a garage, you may not want to fix your problem this way.

The other problem with your locks breaking and locking you in, or out, is that you can’t fix it with a key. Calling a family member, or the maintenance man who works at the apartment complex to come and unlock the door won’t help. You can unlock it from the inside, so it certainly won’t help unlocking it from the outside. This problem requires the door to be taken apart, your door will require a new lock.

This problem may not seem like something that is likely to happen, but as your locks age, they are more likely to breakdown and cause you to be locked in or out. And this problem, while it can be fixed is a quick DIY project, can be better taken care of by a professional locksmith, someone who has all the right tools readily available. At 24/7 Emergency Locksmith, we can help you get out of your home and have your door and locks fixed in no time! Contact us today to learn more and get the help you need.
