There is almost a no worse feeling in the world than the very moment after your car door shuts only for you to realize you just locked your keys in the door. It is a really sickening feeling, especially if you are in a rush or in the worst case scenario, or at least one of the worst case scenario’s, you also locked your phone in the car as well. And, to top it all off, it seems like not one of your neighbors is home and so now, in order to use the phone to call a locksmith, you have to walk to the nearest gas station which is about two miles away. What a way to start the work week right?
Well, I guess it’s true what they say about a situation that you are in, is that no matter what it is, it could always be worse. The truly worst case scenario would be if there were no locksmiths to call and you had to figure out how to get inside the car on your own. Which would more than likely result in a broken window or door handle. But, I’m pretty sure before there were locksmiths, cars didn’t have automatic locks on the door either. In fact, it probably because of the automatic lock that the need for locksmiths was created in the first place. But I digress.
If you are in Texas during the sweltering heat of the summer, and somehow find yourself locked out of your airconditioned car, don’t sweat it, help is available. If you have access to your phone, simply search for any locksmith services houston tx to have a locksmith come out to you right away. They are pretty fast at getting to folks, so it shouldn’t be that long.
One of the worst parts about being locked out of your vehicle is the actual waiting. If you have access to a really good locksmith, they will be to you in just a matter of minutes and get you squared away. Hopefully, you don’t have a pet or in the worst case, a child locked inside of the vehicle as well. If this is the case and you happen to have a vehicle that a locksmith can’t access, then you will need to call 911.
Thankfully, nowadays many cars won’t even allow you to lock yourself out of the vehicle. There is also fingerprint technology that many cars today come equipped with so a lockout, at least for owners of these vehicles, is a thing of the past. Just a touch or grab of the handle will trigger the lock to open.
Technology like this is great for vehicle operators but terrible for locksmiths and their business. However, being able to access your vehicle if you are stranded on a dark and deserted road or if your child is in the car far outweighs any monetary gain. So, sorry but if preventing any of these incidents means less business for locksmiths, sorry but not sorry.
