So, you’ve locked yourself out of your Wakefield home. Don’t panic – it happens to everyone!

Whether you’ve lost your keys, your key has snapped in the lock, or you simply can’t get in, we’re here to help. At Wakefield Lock & Key, we provide our expert locksmith services to anyone locked out in Wakefield.

Our experienced locksmiths can help you to gain entry to your home using non-destructive methods, and get you back indoors in no time at all.

If you’re locked out in Wakefield, call your local locksmith now on 01924 378444 and we’ll be with you within the hour.

Avoid national locksmith companies who claim to be local - deal with a genuinely local, friendly locksmith company.

Why Choose Wakefield Lock & Key When You’re Locked Out?

Over the past three decades, we’ve worked hard to deliver the best services to our customers. So it’s no wonder we’re the first port of call for Wakefield residents when they’ve locked themselves out.

We’re proud to offer:

  • Rapid response times
  • No call-out fees (between 8am-5pm, Mon-Fri)
  • Free quotes & estimates with no obligation
  • Local Wakefield-based locksmiths
  • Fully guaranteed services
  • Accredited & experienced technicians

What Should I Do If I’m Locked Out?

We know that being locked out of your property can be an extremely distressing situation, but there are a couple of things you can do to minimise this stress and stay safe during this scenario.

  • Call your family and friends, is there anyone who has a spare key and lives locally?
  • Call your local locksmith! Unless you have access to a spare key, you’ll need the professional help of a locksmith to gain entry to your property. The sooner you call us, the sooner we can attend your property.
  • Put down the credit cards and hair clips – it might work in films, but realistically you’re not going to crack your door open with ease. Instead, you could damage the door or the lock or even snap your bank cards; so we recommend leaving it to the professionals.
  • See if your neighbours are in. If it’s dark and cold, the last thing you want is to stand outside on your own until we arrive. Try knocking on your neighbours’ doors and see if they’ll let you seek refuge for half an hour or so until we can get to you.

Emergency Locksmiths for When You’re Locked Out in Wakefield

Being locked out of your home or workplace is absolutely an emergency situation. In these circumstances, the last thing you want is an unreliable national locksmith claiming to be local who will take 6 hours to get to you.

Instead, you need a trustworthy locksmith who actually lives in the area and can attend your property in under an hour – like Wakefield Lock & Key! Our emergency locksmith services are available 24/7 across Wakefield and the surrounding areas of West Yorkshire, so you can rest easy knowing that whenever you may need us, we’re on hand to help.

Whatever the time, if you’re locked out of your Wakefield home please call us now on 01924 378444 and we’ll be with you as soon as we possibly can.

Common Locked Out Scenarios

There’s nothing to be embarrassed about – everyone manages to lock themselves out of their home at least once in their lives! It can happen to anyone at any time – let’s take a look at some of the most common locked-out scenarios that we attend:

  • You’ve left the house in a rush and the keys are still inside, but your door has locked behind you.
  • You locked the door as usual when you left, but you’ve managed to lose your keys at some point throughout the day.
  • You can’t find your keys and you haven’t left a spare anywhere.
  • You’ve tried to unlock your door, but the key has snapped in the lock.
  • Your key has jammed inside the lock and you can’t turn it at all.
  • Your lock is broken or your key is damaged.

Whatever the issue, we’ll solve the problem in no time and have you safe and sound inside in under an hour.

Very happy with the service I received! Was with me in less than an hour - which was a blessing because I had been locked out for 2 days and I finally admitted defeat that my keys were a goner! Price was great (less than I expected to be honest) and great friendly guy that came. Would recommend to anyone.

We recently had to call this company out to the lock on our back door which would not lock. They gave us an estimated time to get a fitter to us. The fitter let us know when he was on his way to us and he arrived just before the expected time. The lock was removed and replaced very quickly. Excellent service.
