How To: Break into Your Car to Retrieve Your Keys

Break into Your Car to Retrieve Your Keys

Have you ever locked your keys inside of your car before? I net you have, you've felt the frustration, you've felt the pain, but don't pull out that cell phone just yet... you don't need a locksmith.

This video tutorial will show you step-by-step, how to break into your car to retrieve your keys. You can use a slim jim (like most police officers would) or a coat hanger (like most automobile thieves would). If you use the coat hanger method to get into your vehicle, you're also going to need some large screwdrivers.

wonderful idea,althogh it does not happen nowadays with remote control keys.

I wish I saw (and practiced) this when I had my (really) old car and locked my keys inside. Cost me $40 to unlock it

first of all don't call a locksmith call the cops but yeah I would do this first before calling them
