Okay so a locksmith isn’t quite another emergency service. However they are certainly very important numbers to
have in your phone and if you don’t have them then you are certainly risking a fair bit.
Locksmiths serve many roles they help you to install your new locks and doors, they can consult you on which new locks to get installed and they can copy keys for you among other things.
However the main role of a locksmith and the one we all associate them with is their coming out at all hours of the night to let us in when we’ve lost or forgotten our key.
You might think this is something that you’re never going to do but it’s surprisingly more easy than you think. If you currently carry a key with you to work or when you go out then this means there’s always an opportunity for that key to get mislaid.
It could fall out of your pocket on the bus or on the train or it could get stolen.
No matter how vigilant you are with keeping your keys safe, if you get it pick pocketed then there is simply nothing you can do about it. At the same time you can have it locked in your home accidentally, or you can leave it at work
Again you might never have done this, but when you’re in a rush one day or you have a lot on you’re mind it can be surprisingly easy to do.
And that’s the problem to avoid being locked out you have to remember to have your key with you every single time, but to be locked out and to have your whole day ruined you only need to be locked out once thus there comes a time in almost everyone’s lives where simply by the rules of probability they are going to need help from a locksmith.
And furthermore it might not even be the case that you’ve left or lost your key. It might not then be your fault at all. Lock mechanisms are no different from any other mechanical device and over time they will become damaged and start losing functionality.
Someone smart would have a locksmith come out and fix the lock as soon as it started to show signs of wear and tear, but you need to at least have the number of a good locksmith in your phone so that if and when you do get locked out you can call for help
