The key here is to look for a company that specialises in non-destructive re-entry. This means that when they first visit your property, they will try their best to pick the lock, and engineer it open using non-destructive measures. This is different from an amateur, who will most likely be looking to drill the lock open, damaging the mechanism and requiring a new lock, and also potentially causing damage and mess to the surrounding structure and decor.

It is essential to use the information in the video above to make an accurate choice on who you want to help you in an emergency lock out situation. Leicestershire is covered by most of the professional locksmiths, and if they offer a 24 hour emergency service, the road layouts mean they will usually reach you within the hour.
