So, exactly how do we get you back into your car? Depending on the specific hardware for your make and model of car, we have several ways of opening car doors.
A Slim Jim tool is a staple of every locksmith’s tool kit. When your car is locked from the inside, we insert the slim jim between the glass and weather stripping of your window in order to unlock your door without the key.
We use J & L tools on older models of car that have switched lock and unlock buttons on their door panels. We pass the tool through the top of the window and use it to release the lock button.
Most new cars these days are made with keyless entry systems. When you’ve gotten locked out, we’ve got to reprogram these systems before they can be unlocked. The locksmith that handles your lockout will be trained and experienced in working with these kinds of locks, so you can be assured that we’ll reprogram your lock and get you back inside without harming your vehicle.
For those times when you’ve lost your car key, we can not only get you back into your car, but make you a new key on the spot. For many cars, we can use a key analyzer to determine the electrical resistance values of your lock and then use them to cut a duplicate without needing the original key.
The internet is full of bad advice about how to handle your own lockout. While it may sound easier to attempt DIY methods in order to avoid spending money on a locksmith, these methods rarely ever work and oftentimes cause you to damage your car in the process.
