FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS WHEN LOCKED OUT OF YOUR HOUSE

Here are the most common questions we encounter when homeowners are locked out of their homes. Since you may find yourself asking these questions, Alamo Key and Lock decided to offer some answers.

HOW DOES THE LOCKSMITH OPEN THE DOOR WHEN I’M LOCKED OUT OF MY HOUSE?

All of Alamo Key and Lock’s Home Lockout licensed locksmiths will find the safest, simplest, easiest way to get you back in your home. They follow what’s called the path of least resistance. And they do so without damaging the lock if at all possible. Any locksmith worth his salt should start by trying to pick the lock. The most common locks in the US are mortise or cylinder locks, which use a pin and tumbler mechanism. Whether 3,4,5, or 6pm, our locksmiths can pick these locks without damaging the lock.

Since most locks on your home are designed to keep out thieves, we don’t recommend trying to pick these locks yourself.

WHAT TOOLS DO LOCKSMITHS USE TO OPEN THE DOOR AND PICK THE LOCK?

The two types of tools that our Home Lockout locksmiths have and most homeowners don’t are torsion wrench and a bump key.

A torsion wrench holds the cylinder pins in place after the locksmith has picked the lock. When all the pins are in a line, even just for a few moments, the wrench is turned and the lock opens.

A bump key works in a similar way, since it all puts all the pins in alignment. A bump key is a blank key that the locksmith can add grooves to, so when it’s inserted in the key hole, it’ll move the pins.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FIX A HOME LOCKOUT?

Getting back inside from a Home Lockout can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, usually less. Our professional locksmiths have safely picked many permitted locks to help homeowners get inside, and they have the tools for the job. Unlike replacing a lock, getting through one can take only a few minutes.

HOW TO GET IN WINDOW?

We don’t recommend trying to get into your window when you’re locked out, unless it’s very easy and the window is unlocked. If the window is locked, trying to pick it won’t help. And breaking your window is costly and can spread glass. Obviously trying to enter a window that you’ve broken can cut you.

HOW TO OPEN THE DOOR?

If you’re locked out and have a lock picking tool kit on you, you may be able to enter. Without any tools it’ll be very difficult to enter a locked door. Getting the door open depends on why you’re locked out in the first place. If the key is jammed in the door lock, broken or stuck, you’ll need to get it out. Since you can’t pick or bump a lock with a key stuck in it. If you’ve lost the key and have lockpicking tools on you, this is the best way to get in. In the end our Home Lockout locksmiths will get you back into your home when you cannot.

HOW MUCH FOR LOCKSMITH?

Our Home Lockout locksmith has a standard service call of $49. Anything above that will be for additional work. Please call (713) 688-3887 for our latest prices. We are happy to tell you.

LOCKED OUT OF HOUSE WITH DEADBOLT?

If the deadbolt is stuck there will be no way to go through the door. Sometimes if the key seems jams in the lock, you can simply press on the cylinder or use some lubricant to get the key out; but if the deadbolt is stuck, you won’t be able to move it without sophisticated locksmith tools.

HOW TO PICK LOCK?

Although we don’t recommend picking your own locks when your locked out of your house, if you do have the tools, it can be a good place to start. Try this guide on picking a lock to get you started.

WHAT IF I’M LOCKED OUT WITH NO KEY?

Alamo Key and Lock can help you get back into your home even if you don’t have a key. Our locksmiths can arrive in usually less than 30 minutes. If you’re locked out with no key, we don’t recommend lock picking or breaking a window, since these can damage you’re lock or cause injury trying to enter a window, respectively.

Testimonials

  • As a real estate broker I often need a Houston locksmith to get a door of a property open to show a prospective buyer. I have worked with Alamo Key and Lock for a long time. Absentee homeowners often lose keys or tenants change locks to prevent the home form being shown. Alamo Key and Lock will always respond and get the door opened and a new key made. I also use them to change locks on foreclosures and evictions to prevent re-entry by the former occupants. I have been very satisfied with the service over the years.

  • They were the best and most prompt locksmiths I have experienced.

    Lly Gomez
  • I accidentally locked my car after putting my daughter in the child's seat in the back seat. It was a hot day also and I began to panic. A stranger called Alamo Key and Lock for me along with the police. I was surprised that the Houston Locksmith arrived at almost the same time as the police. The locksmith got the door opened and my daughter was fine. The policeman said if the locksmith did not come right away he would have had no choice but to break the window because seconds count. I owe a big thanks to Alamo Key and Lock for responding to my emergency so quickly.

  • Thank you Alamo key &lock and Francisco for opening my car total life savers. Flat rate scam free, I before I called them I called another place that wanted my car make and model, year, color and would give me a rate once they got there. I recommend them took less than minute to open it.

  • Very nice and professional young man came out. I completely gave up after two tow truck drivers came to try and get my keys out before him, but he was persistent and tried every which way possible. He could've easily said it would be more to make a key, but he tried and tried until he got it open. I am very grateful because not only did I not have to make a key, but he got my keys out really quick. Thank you guys!!!
