The most common reasons why we get locked out is we have simply walked out the front door and closing the door behind us, and forgetting the keys inside the house. This is known as a slam-shut! The second most common reason is we have lost our keys. Lastly, the lock has become faulty preventing it from engaging and unlocking the door. This can happen for several reasons like wear and tear, misalignment, stiff pin, the CAM not turning, a warping door, and so on.



A slam-shut is where the door is accidentally closed and secured by only the lock latching mechanism. We refer to this as an emergency lockout or lockouts.

When a lockout occurs it means the Night latch lock fixed to a wooden door, a Euro Cylinder in a UPVC door, or a Euro Cylinder in a Composite door is holding the door secure.

Luckily Redhill locksmiths are on standby 24 hrs a day to rescue and assist you to gain access back inside your home. emergency lockouts are our specialty and unlock doors within minutes of arriving at your address without damage, by using advanced techniques with highly sophisticated tools. 



A lock-in refers to when you are unable to open your door as normal, and have become trapped inside requiring assistance to open the door.

This can be down to a malfunctioning latch, or bolt that cannot be retracted and becoming stuck in place, internal components of the Night latch lock or UPVC/Composite Gearbox breaking, misalignment of the keeps due to the hinges dropping off, which can cause the full weight of the door to rest on the hooks, or that the door has a been double locked from the outside.
