What to know when you're locked out of your house
"Phone, Keys, Wallet." We all live by that check list as we are running out the door, but sometimes one of those items can fall off your radar. Locking yourself out of your house might be one of the costliest lapses out of the three, because if a family member or friend cannot deliver a spare set of keys, your next call could be a locksmith who will use your situation as a ripe business opportunity.
Experts Mike Bronzell, chairman of the Associated Locksmiths of America task force, and Ira Cheek, owner of CID Locksmith in the Queens section of New York, offer some advice on how residents can be prepared, and the best ways to get back into your home safely, without spending any more money than necessary.
