No matter how careful you are, there’s still a chance you may find yourself in a sticky situation involving your keys. These are some of those scenarios that warrant an emergency locksmith service Winnipeg.
- When your toddler locks themselves in the house
In a home lockout scenario, older children may take some set of instructions but if your toddler locks themselves in a room or house, the whole story changes. The thought of your child locked in the house is enough to strike terror into the heart of any parent but you need to keep calm then act swiftly. If it’s an interior door, you might be able to unscrew the door if the screws are visible. However, exterior door locks are meant to enhance security and not privacy so these are usually sturdier and harder to unscrew. If this is the situation, call an emergency locksmith immediately and while you wait, keep your child engaged by talking to them until the locksmith arrives. For prompt response, call a locksmith in your local area. As a preventative measure, once the locksmith has resolved the emergency talk to them about childproofing your doors. You want to prevent a recurring situation where your child locks themselves in even more dangerous rooms of the house such as the kitchen.
