Standing beside your car which is in a perfect working condition, unable to have access to it is no fun and it might lead you towards a panic attack because there are many things you can’t do without your car, such as you will not be able to pick up the kids from school, you will not reach to office on time, you will be unable to make it to the grocery, etc.

There are many different reasons of getting locked out of your car, like you forgot the keys inside the car, due to a malfunction in the vehicle’s central locking system, problem with your car remote or key. All these things can happen with anyone. Here are few things that might prevent you from a car lockout situation.

Build up a habit for checking your keys when you get out of your car. If you are planning to change your daily routine, check your keys to ensure that you won’t be locked out of your car when you require access to it. Attach something noisy with your keychain so whenever they will fall they will make a loud sound for you to hear them.

Always carry a spare set of keys with you or hide the one in your wallet. Give another spare key to any of your trust worthy friend or family member who you think will be there for you in the time of need. You can also give an extra key to a reliable person in your neighborhood. You can also wear a spare key as a part of your jewelry or attach it with your belt.

There are several gadgets available in the market which will help you to prevent car lockout by showing the exact location of your car keys. Use car locks that can be opened with the help of your cell phone because this will make sure that you have access to your car always.

Replace malfunctioning keys and old batteries immediately. If you are using chip key or electronic key, keep a check on them that are they working properly or not. If you have a feeling that there is something wrong with the central locking system, get it examined as soon as possible.

Lubricate your car locks in cold weather because locks might freeze due to the severe cold. Apply petroleum jelly on your car keys to insert it in the lock.

If all the above steps failed to help you, then you have to take emergency locksmith services. Always keep a contact number of a professional locksmith to get help at the time of emergency. Just dial the number and they will be there for your help within minutes.
