Other Entry Points – Take a good look around your property and check for any other possible entry points such as a back door or open window if it is safe to do so.

If you can’t gain entry to your property or can’t find your keys then it is worth calling out a local locksmith who will be able to gain entry and change locks if necessary.
Spare Keys – Have a think back and try and remember if you have ever given out a spare set of keys to a friend or relative while you have been away. If this is the case then you can give them a call to let you in your property then you can relax a bit and start to retrace your steps, again if you cant find your keys then call a locksmith and they will be able to come and change the locks for your own piece of mind that no one else can easily gain entry to your property.
Carry ID – Most people will always have some form of ID on them at all times but if your one of the few that doesn’t then it might be a good idea to start.

If locksmiths never did this then would be burglars would just call a locksmith break into your home for them!
