When you finally get home from a long day only to realize that you’ve been locked out of your home, there are few things that can be more stressful or even more nerve-wracking. If you are new to the area or it is late at night, you will want a few tips for staying safe until a locksmith can come to assist you. Here at A. L. Odom Locksmiths, Inc., we have a few tips to help you.

ask the residential locksmith that you call to clearly identify themselves

  • First, keep yourself in a public place when possible. This means going to a coffee shop, mall or any place near you where there will be other people around. Even if you don’t know anyone, being around other people until the residential locksmith can arrive can help you stay safe. If there’s nothing close, stay in your car with the doors locked.
  • Second, make good use of your phone. Ask a friend to come and keep you company while you wait, or you could also ask a friend or relative to stay on the phone with you until someone arrives.
  • Third, ask the residential locksmith that you call to clearly identify themselves when they arrive and get their name ahead of time so you know who to be expecting.
