It happens to us all at some point: We lose our réparation elv and want to kick ourselves for it. What’s worse is that it always seem to happen at the worst possible time. Murphy’s law in effect! Like maybe you are miles from home and you really don’t want to be walking home or you stopped in a sketchy neighborhood just to pick up some groceries and you definitely do not want to stay there for hours.
Those scenarios are easy to avoid if you take some precautions and if the worst comes to happen, then there are ways to get back in your car without your car keys. Of course, you could just call a car locksmith and be done with it.
The simplest way to make sure you don’t lock yourself out of your car is to always wear a spare key and by wearing a spare key, I mean that literally. Don’t leave your spare key in the glove department or in your handbag. Literally, wear a spare key on your person at all times. This is hardly ideal however, particularly for women, where clothes may not be suitable for carrying around a big key. Another option is to wear your car key in a chain either around your neck or somewhere else. That’s not without problems either though. Wearing a sharp object close to your body may seriously harm or injure you if you fall or stumble, so let’s discount that option.
Now, the second option is to actually learn how to pick your car lock. Picking locks is actually not as difficult as you may think, criminals are usually not that smart and they do it all the time. It only works on older locks though. Modern locks are much more advanced and almost impossible to pick. However, if you do have an older car model, then it’s certainly doable. What you need is a tension wrench and a long, flat opbject such as a screwdriver. You may also want to pick up a lockpicking guide. Just keep in mind, that lockpicking is a bit of a suspicious activity and you may find yourself talking to the police sooner rather than later.
If none of the above suggestions seem attractive, then just call a car locksmith. Just like with regular locksmiths, a car locksmith is a professional that can open any lock and create temporary keys. Car locksmiths also have 24 hour services for the most part. They can also usually handle modern transponder keys.
