Locksmith emergencies… and how we solve them
If you find yourself in any of these situations, don’t wait to call Texan.
- Lock-out: If you’re locked out of your home or business, we will start by trying to pick the lock. If this is impossible, we will drill it open and install a new one. If you’re locked out of your car, we will open the door with an air wedge and long reach tool.
- Broken key: Keys sometimes break off inside the lock or ignition switch. When this happens, it may be possible for you to slide the broken piece out with your fingers. But if you can’t do this easily, we will safely extract it with specialized tools to prevent damage to the lock. And we’ll make you a new key!
- Broken lock: Sometimes locks fail. We will repair it on the spot, or replace it if necessary.
- Immediate lock change: A break-in, lost key or any number of sticky situations might call for a fast lock change. We’re available for this at all hours.
These are just a few of the most common scenarios we assist in. Whenever something goes wrong with your locks, keys or security system, and you need it fixed right now, we’re ready to solve the problem.
What to do when you can’t open your door
People get into these situations for any number of reasons. Maybe you left your keys inside your car and closed the door, which was already locked. Maybe you lost the keys to your house. Maybe the lock stopped working or your key broke off inside it. In any case, your first step is always the same: don’t panic! Help is only a phone call away.
Dial up an emergency locksmith right away. (It’s a good idea to find a reliable 24-hour company beforehand and keep their number with you so you’re prepared for these cases.) Whatever you do, don’t try to solve the problem by yourself! People sometimes try to break windows or pick their own lock to avoid calling a professional, but this will almost inevitably result in much more trouble and expense. Locks are sensitive mechanisms, and trying to pick one without the right skills and tools can cause serious damage.
While you wait, try to stay in a safe, well-lit area. If you’re stuck out of your car, stay close to it, so you can keep an eye on it and we can find you easily. Be sure to note the address and details of your location carefully so you can give an accurate description to the dispatcher. In case of harsh weather, seek shelter but call the dispatcher to let them know where you are.
When the locksmith opens the door to your house or apartment, he will first try to pick the lock, but if that fails he will drill it open. This means he will also need to repair it or replace it, which he can do on the spot. Consider having high security locks installed, since these are much safer than standard ones!
