You could be the most responsible, best prepared person in the world and still run into situations that require a call to a 24 hour emergency locksmith. Thanks to Murphy’s Law, it will likely be when you’re already having a bad day or running late. Our team at A1 Lock and Key LLC is proud to provide 24/7 emergency service; however, there is value in knowing when to call in the middle of the night or weekend, and when to wait for normal business hours. Read on for a list of examples of common locksmith emergencies.

Locksmith Emergencies

1. When You’re Locked Out and Can’t Wait

If you’re out and about and need to get home but you can’t find your car keys, what do you do? Unless you have someone to bring you a spare, you’re stranded! Don’t worry, this happens a lot more often than you might think and that’s why we’re here! Likewise, there are times when you may find yourself locked out of your house and you cannot wait to get back in. Maybe you just stepped out for a minute and forgot the door would lock behind you, or maybe you’re back from a trip and can’t find your keys. Whatever the circumstance, if you can’t wait or don’t have a close friend with a spare set, you can depend on us.

2. Someone Has Broken Into Your Home

Does it look like someone has tried to force your door open? Whether it’s a front door, a back door, a side door, a door to your garage, or any other entry point to your house, getting a locksmith over ASAP is a good idea. You don’t know who tried to force their way into your house, and you don’t know why. You also may not know if they were successful in breaking and entering. In such cases, you’ll want to side with caution and get your locks changed and rekeyed.

3. Your Lock Breaks

Another common lock problem is breakage. Sometimes that means that your keys won’t work anymore and you’re locked out of your home. Or, it can mean that anyone can now get into your house and you are now vulnerable to break-ins. When this happens, don’t delay; call our emergency line right away and protect yourself and your possessions.
