Coming back to your car after doing some shopping, or running some errands, only to realize you accidentally locked your keys in the car is one stressful, annoying and causes a huge delay in getting you on with your day. Maybe you’ve lost your key, and you know you have a spare in the car but you just can’t get to it right now. No matter how you came to be locked out of your vehicle, when you can’t get into it and you need to be somewhere it’s important you have a company you can call to help you out.
The methods used to unlock a car, without a key, may vary depending on the make and model of vehicle you drive. One of the most common methods used is the Slim Jim which works by slipping a thin tool between the weather stripping and moving it around until the lock is unlatched. This method does rely on your vehicle having an upright style lock. Using this method does require professional experience as this part of the vehicle has a lot of wiring and mechanisms tucked in there so if it is not done by a professional there could be unnecessary damage done to the vehicle.
Another way the door could be unlocked is by using a wedge. This tool works by creating an opening in the door so that you can put another tool inside to unlock the door. The second tool used usually looks a little like a lasso, and it works by pulling up on the lock to release it.
