Hi, I'm Bob Holcomb from Apex Automotive in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. Today, we're going to give you a couple of tips on how to get into your car if you've locked the keys in it. There's not a more sinking feeling than watching your car door slam shut with the keys in the ignition and the door locked. Once you are locked out of your car you could have a couple of options. You could have a spare key hidden in your wallet. You could call for a set of spare keys. You could have a hide a key somewhere in the car or a magnetic box with a key in it. Without any of those, we'll have to somehow get into the vehicle and unlock these doors. They sell a device, a wedge and a long rod. If we jam a wedge into the door post, being careful not to rip the window and door gasket, you want to get in there just right behind the gasket so you don't rip the gasket, then we can take a long pole, stick it inside the car, find our door lock and then we can unlock the doors. Now once the doors are unlocked and this apparatus is stuck in the door you're going to want to hang onto both of these devices as the door is going to pop open rather quickly because you've wedged it open. That's how to get into your car if you lock the cars in it. The best solution is to have a spare key magnetically attached to the car somewhere or a key in your wallet but if you must get in, pry the window frame open, reach in and unlock the power door locks.
