Lockout Locksmith FAQ

What do I do when I’m locked out of my house?

Contact us at Shearline Locksmiths immediately. We have a quick response time and will help you gain entry into your home as quickly and efficiently as possible. We won’t break your locks or drill them because we’re trained at picking them.

How can I avoid home lockouts?

There are several strategies to avoid lockouts, including having a spare key in a secure location, giving a spare to a trusted neighbor or family member, and installing a keyless entry system such as a smart lock which we can also provide and install.

How long does it take for a technician to get to my home?

The time can vary depending on your location and current traffic conditions. We aim to get a locksmith to you as quickly as possible, typically within 30 minutes to an hour.

Will my locks be damaged in the process of opening my lock?

Our locksmiths use professional tools and techniques designed to open locks without causing damage. However, in some rare cases, the lock may need to be drilled if it cannot be picked because the lock is broken or is a high-security keyway.

How long does it take until the lockout is resolved?

Typically, once the locksmith arrives, it takes around 5-30 minutes to unlock a standard door knob or deadbolt lock.

Can I drill my own locks if I’m in a rush?

We strongly discourage doing this as it will damage the lock and possibly the door. Once the lock is drilled you’ll need to replace it which will create further delays. It’s much safer and more cost-effective to hire a professional locksmith.

Will my lock still work after you open it?

Yes, your lock will still work after we pick it open. Prior to leaving we will make sure your locks work smoothly.

Can all locks be picked?

While many standard locks such as Schlage and Kwikset can be picked, some high-security locks are designed to resist picking. However, a professional locksmith has other methods of opening a lock if picking is not possible.

I’m locked out of my house can you help?

Absolutely, that’s one of the emergency services we provide. Contact us and we’ll dispatch our nearest technician to your location as soon as possible.

I’m locked out of my house but don’t have any ID that can verify my residency, can you still unlock my house?

For your protection and ours, we require proof of residency before unlocking a home. If you’re unable to provide ID, we can accept alternate forms of proof such as a lease agreement, or a utility bill with your name and address.
