Tricky Escapes: The Magic Of Locks, Keys, And Safes

Good day. I'm Joe Seymour and I work part-time as a magician. Recently, I've had to learn a few new tricks because, quite frankly, people aren't impressed with disappearing coins anymore. My new repertoire involves various tricks that use locks, keys, and safes as props. I've actually become quite fixated on all the different types I've found and how they work. My best trick these days is getting an audience member to put money in a safe and lock it with their own combination. Even in a digital world, people love seeing how quickly I can "crack the code". My newfound fascination with locks, keys, and safes has led me to seek out others who have a little know-how in this area. Hopefully, you'll enjoy my blog and my research will help me to gain ideas for new tricks. Just turn the key and step on in.

Here Are What Your Next Steps Should Be After You Lock Yourself Out Of Your Home Or Car

Many people have been in that uncomfortable situation where they find themselves accidentally locked out of their home or car. There are few worse experiences than that sinking feeling you get when you realize that your key isn't in your pocket and no one else is inside to let you in. However, it doesn't do well to dwell on it long; it is time to get a move on and get yourself inside before it becomes too cold or you make a silly decision. Here are the first steps you should take when you realize you are locked out of your home or car.

Do Not Try To Break In

It cannot be understated enough that you should never try to break into your own home or car. Not only can you seriously injure yourself with a fall or on broken glass or sharp metal, but you will then have to repair the damage you caused anyway. Unless you are in a life or death situation, you should never try to break into your own home or car. It is an easy first thought to have and understandable if you think you can do it, but the chances of it going wrong are so high and the cost of that is simply not worth the chance. 

Use Specific Search Terms

The phrase you want to type into your phone (or the phone you have borrowed) is something like "emergency locksmith." This term will give you a list of professionals in the near vicinity who can help get you inside as soon as possible. If it is past regular business hours, then use an emergency locksmith. Do not search for a general locksmith or handyman company as they will take much longer and could be based further away; use specific terms to find a professional near you.

Cheer Yourself Up

Mistakes happen, and at the end of the day you may have to pay a hundred or so bucks to get back into your home or car, but that is a relatively cheap lesson that you will take with yourself for a long time. Do not be too harsh on yourself; instead, accept that you got away lightly and didn't make a bad situation worse by breaking into your own car or home and causing thousands of dollars worth of damage. It can be a good idea to actually treat yourself if you can, whether that is with a nice meal or buying something you had been saving for just to take the edge off of it and remind yourself that you will get through this.
