As example you might state the back window is always open can you please climb through and then you gave the person key information. Or maybe they might have smaller wrists than you to fit them through the letterbox this also gives out key information. If you find your self locked out you should always ring a locksmith near to yourself or you could even ask a friendly face who you know to help out.
