Car lockout problems can happen at any time. Perhaps for you, it involves leaving the keys inside the ignition before locking your vehicle. Well, no need to panic-damaged any part of your automobile while trying to get back in, Automotive locksmiths from 245 Service can help you unlock all your car doors with no adverse effects. It will take just about a few minutes to get this done, but here are other things you can try on your own.
Get In Through The Trunk
More often than not, manual locks for a wide range of cars lock the door but leave out the trunk. If you are using one of those models, you will be in luck when you have an emergency lockout.
All you have to do is get in, push the car’s rear seats forwards to create a passage for yourself and get to the cockpit. Once you have access, you can manually unlock all the doors and get on with your day. But make sure to lock your trunk so the situation doesn’t favour carjackers.
Using A Wedge Tool
Do you use automatic locks? If yes, then there is an effective way through which you can unlock the doors of your four-wheel drive if you do not have the keys with you. With the aid of a wedge too, carefully create a space between the door and the body of your vehicle.
Often, the auto-lock for most cars is located on the driver’s armrest. If you can merely press it with the thin metal rod, it can be activated to regive you access to your car. If you do not have any experience with this, it is best to steer clear of it to avoid more issues.
Try A Slim Jim
Slim jim is the common name used to refer to a thin metal strip best used for unlocking car doors. If you are an avid watcher of crime movies, you’d have come across car thieves using it to vehicles open. But before you can pull this off, you need prior practice with the tool.
If mishandled, you can tear the door wires from the inside and damage the weather stripping. If you are sure you have steady hands with this, slowly push it through the weather stripping, use the hook-like end to grab the unlock mechanism under the locking pin and pull to disengage.
