Avoid Getting Locked Out Using These Tips 

There will have some time in life when many of us will have locked ourselves out of our vehicle. Although it may be a one-off occurrence for some, others may find it happening all the time. As such, you should use the following tips to ensure that you avoid getting locked out of your vehicle in the future. 

Have a Spare Key Made  

Many people can underestimate the benefit of a spare key, but they're a true lifesaver when you find out that you've locked yourself out of your vehicle. 

You can keep a spare at a family members home, in your own home, or both. A spare key is easy to get acquire and can help alleviate stress when locked out of your vehicle. 

Lock Your Car Using the Fob 

Nowadays, it's not uncommon for car owners to have fobs that allow them to lock the vehicle from afar. 

Making a habit of locking your car using the fob ensures that there is less chance of the keys being left inside the vehicle. 

Replace the Fob Batteries 

Should the batteries in the fob become non-operational, then it's likely car owners will go back to using their keys in the conventional method. This increases the likelihood of locking the keys inside of the vehicle. 

The most common reason for a fob failing to work is because the batteries need replacing. This should be done as soon as possible to decrease the chances of being locked out of your vehicle. 

Consider a Bright Keychain 

It may sound simple but investing a brightly colored keychain could make all the difference as to whether you remember to pick up your keys before exiting the vehicle. 

You can use a lanyard or anything that stands out to ensure that you're not leaving your car keys behind when exiting the vehicle 

Make Sure You Have the Number of a Locksmith to Hand 

It's always better to be safe than sorry, so it can be worthwhile ensuring that you have the number of reputable locksmith to hand.

Things to Avoid 

When you've locked yourself out of your car, you might be tempted to open the door yourself, or take advice from a passer-by. 

Under no circumstance should you ever try to open the door yourself. Not only is there the potential for damage, but you could find that any damage incurred isn't covered under your insurance policy. 

Taking note of all the above tips will help you limit the chance of lockout, and know what to do should the worst-case scenario occur.
