You had a tough day at work and now you are ready to put your feet up in your favourite place in the living room. You cannot wait to get inside the house, looking forward to a relaxing respite from all the office troubles you tackled the last five days. It’s the weekend, after all. But just when you key into the lock at the front door, your key broke. You were left the other end of the key, a lockout, and an insane situation altogether. What to do?
Before you go and panic, you should first inspect how bad the key was stuck. Calling in a domestic locksmith who is expert in emergency lockout opening as well as changing keys will only require a few minutes. While the locksmith is on its way, you may try turning the remainder of the key that was stuck in the lock and see if there is a way to turn it to open your home, using whatever tool is available. If this is not possible, grab a glass of water so you can relax while the lock and key expert travels to your location.
Lockout services involve more than just door opening. It also includes break in repair service and key replacements as needed.

Trying to tamper with a lockout or a broken key, in particular, may cost you more, especially if you have barely an idea how to do it right.
