A night latch locks the door the moment you close it and while this is helpful in maintaining security, this also makes it easy to get locked out of your home. You can avoid locking the night latch by keeping it “on the latch”. However, this can be easily forgotten and can lead to accidental lockouts.
If you ever find yourself in a situation where your night latch needs to be picked, you can call a locksmith for a lock-picking service. Costs can be somewhere around £60 on average to upwards of £90 for the labour alone.
