Getting locked out of the house might seem like a minor inconvenience which may only end with being late, or waiting outside for someone to rescue me. but maybe more serious once kids or pets are locked inside the house.

If the keys are locked inside your house, or even lost altogether, you shouldn’t panic. There are many options to assist you with getting back inside your house quickly and easily without breaking a window or a door.

Very important is to not give in to the panic, remain calm, and try these options to help you gain entry to your home:

Seek help from a friend, roommate, or family member:

Giving someone you trust a copy of your key is perfect for these situations.

Giving a neighbor a copy of your key will make for an easy and fast solution. It will get you back to your house in no time.
