I’m locked out…..should I drill my locks to get in?
There is no getting away from it if you are locked out of your property it is going to cost you a bit of money to get your locks opened (a lot if it’s after 10.00 pm at night!). Calling out a London Locksmith is always going to be at a premium but can you get in on the cheap? Well this is something we do not advise and there are a few reasons why!
Realistically the only way you can get into your property is by either through a window (which if it’s safe enough to get into shouldn’t be a problem) or alternatively kick your door in-this would possibly cost more money than a London Locksmith with the repair and could also make a huge difference to the look of your property inside.
But in recent months possibly due to hard times many people have tried drilling their locks. Now drilling locks is not as easy as many people make out-it simply isn’t drilling a lock as fast as possible and hoping that by some miracle that it will open up. The drilling can make the lock a lot harder to open-in fact there are many people who have tried to drill their locks open and its ended up costing them more money.
People drilling their own locks have become too common and we certainly do not advise it. Make sure you call your local London Locksmith 1st….it could save you a lot of money!
