DIY – Think you can get into a locked car yourself?

Have you ever seen a movie where someone unlocks their car with an old coat hanger? I’m guessing that this is not the first time. Well, there is more than one way to do it if you can’t find your keys! Some people might try using household items like wire cutters and lock picks but those who drive newer vehicles probably won’t want any part of trying these DIY methods because they will likely fail anyways (and risk damage). Many of these options will not work with newer cars or cars with horizontal locks. Modern cars now come jam packed with more secure features than ever before, and they frequently lack an unlock button that can be easily manipulated.

 

 

The wire coat hanger method

Find a old wire coat hanger. Straighten out the hanger and create a small hook at one end. Next, insert the hook into the door jamb between the window and the frame. Move the hanger carefully up and down until you hear it catch on the locking mechanism. With any luck, the lock will pop open as a result of your persistent efforts.

 

 

String loop method

This one can be a little more tricky. Tying a knot roughly the diameter of your index finger is a good place to start. Using a back-and-forth motion, edge the string down through the weather-stripping in the door frame towards the lock . Wiggle the knot over the lock button and when there is a solid grip, pull to pop the lock. In theory, this should cause your car to unlock.

FAQs

How to avoid locking your keys in the car?

Locking your car keys inside is a simple mistake to make, and it may be quite costly. Fortunately, there are a few easy measures you may take to avoid it.

  • Be sure to always have a spare key. Keeping one with a family member is often a good idea. This way, if you do accidentally lock your keys in the car, you’ll have a backup.
  • Make sure to keep your key fob in a safe and easily accessible place. If you’re prone to misplacing things, consider attaching it to your keychain or keeping it in your pocket.
  • If you are renting a car or borrowing someone else’s car, be sure to ask for a spare key before you drive off.

These measures can assist you in ensuring that you will never be stranded without a means of entry into your car.

 

 

How long does a car door unlocking service usually take?

The typical time it takes to unlock a car door is 15 to 30 minutes. However, this can differ based on the make and model of the automobile, as well as the complexity of the lock. In rare cases, it may take longer than 30 minutes to unlock the door.

 

 

What security checks do your locksmiths do before unlocking a car?

The last thing you want is for just anybody to be able to unlock your vehicle if you lock your keys in it. That is why our locksmiths take security very seriously. They’ll do a thorough examination to ensure that the individual requesting the unlock is actually the owner of the car before they open your vehicle. They will also check to see if there are any signs of forced entry or tampering. After they are confident that everything is in good working order, they will use their specialist equipment and methods to unlock your vehicle. So when you call us for help, you can rest assured that your car is in safe hands.

 

 

Is it possible to get a replacement car key if you’ve lost the original?

If you’ve lost your car key, locked yourself out, and don’t have a spare. You’ll need to get a new vehicle key made. In most cases, you can get a replacement key from your local locksmith. You’ll need to provide proof of ownership, such as your vehicle registration or insurance card. Once you’ve gotten a replacement key, make sure to store it in a safe location so you don’t have to go through the trouble of getting another one made.
