3 Tips for Preventing a Car Lockout Emergency

While car lockouts may not be entirely preventable, there are a few things you can do to reduce your risk of finding yourself stranded:

  • Always Use the Key Fob to Lock the Doors – The easiest way to avoid locking your keys in your car is to get into the habit of always using your key fob to lock your vehicle. This way, if you happen to leave your car keys inside your vehicle, you’ll notice right away before the doors are locked.
  • Have Spare Keys Made – If you only have one key for your vehicle, you’re far more likely to find yourself in an emergency lockout situation. Having an extra car key made before it becomes an emergency can save you a lot of stress and frustration.
  • Have the Phone Number of a Trustworthy Local Locksmith Stored in Your Phone – When you’re stuck outside of your vehicle, the last thing you want to do is spend time researching locksmith companies. Doing your research ahead of time and having the number of a reputable locksmith stored in your phone before you need it can help you ensure that you don’t fall for a scam.
