Big Red Locksmiths - Preventing Auto Lockouts in OmahaAuto lockouts are a very frustrating situation for any driver in Omaha.

Since our top priority is helping people in Omaha with auto lockouts and related issues, we want to share a few tips on what you can do to prevent this situation:

1. Be Conscious of Where You Put Your Keys

Even though this sounds simple enough, it’s something that’s easy to forget about during the hustle and bustle of the day. That’s why it’s worth consciously reminding yourself to not set your keys down in your car or anywhere else. Instead, your auto and house keys should always go straight into your pocket or purse. And when you get home, have a designated spot for your keys.

2. Periodically Check Your Key Fob

While you may still be able to get into your car if your key fob dies, this can still create a hassle. You can avoid getting stuck with a dead key fob by periodically checking it and coming by Big Red Locksmiths if you ever need help with it.

3. Have at Least One Set of Spare Keys

There are times when auto lockouts occur and people are far from their home or office. However, a significant percentage of lockouts happen when people are within a short distance from those locations. That’s why having at least one spare set of keys stored in a secure but convenient location can save the day if you get locked out. All you need to do is come by Big Red Locksmiths and we’ll get high-quality spares cut for you.
