Locksmith Kitchener Preventing Lockout


When you are stuck in a lockout and the locksmith opens your door, you will feel a sense of relief; however, you should consider taking the right steps to prevent yourself from getting locked out again. Our locksmith you hire may offer some tips for this, which may include the following steps:

Hide a spare key somewhere or with someone. Having a duplicate key handy for times of emergency is always a good idea. When you have a spare key handy, you will never get locked out again. If you do this, hide it well so no one else can find it or leave it with a trusted neighbor who can keep it safe.

Upgrade to key-less entry. Our locksmith can install a lock that contains a number pad. You can enter the code when you arrive home, and this will open the door instantly. You cannot get locked out with this type of lock as long as you remember the passcode.

If by any chance your key has broken into the lock and you are handy, here there are some instructions to help you in this process.

How to remove a broken key from a lock

Spray (a short blast) the interior of the lock with liquid graphite to provide lubrication between the key and tumblers. Use a pair of needle-nose pliers in an effort to grasp the end of the broken key. You may just be able to grasp the key and pull it free from the lock. If this fails, then you still have one alternative left.

Hold a jigsaw blade with the teeth pointed toward you, and then wrap the closest end of the blade with a few wraps of duct tape. This will provide you with a convenient handhold and prevent you from cutting your fingers on the blade. Next, carefully insert the jig saw blade into the lock and maneuver it above the broken key. Jiggle the blade a few times until you feel it engage with the teeth on the key, and then jerk the blade to pull the key. If you are successful, the teeth on the blade will grasp the key’s teeth and pull the broken piece from the lock.

If you still need our help, give Locksmith Kitchener a call as soon as you realize you are locked out, and we will be there quickly!
