Are you locked out of your car and don't have a key? Don't worry, you can still get back in without breaking the bank or window. With the right tools and a bit of know-how, you can unlock your car like a pro. To open your car door without a key, you'll need a wooden wedge, an air wedge, and a rod. Start by sliding the wooden wedge over the top of the door.
To avoid damaging the paint, place a cover (preferably plastic) around the wedge. Next, use a prying tool to pull the top of the door frame outward and push the wedge inward to keep it out. Then, with a long thin bar (it could even be a hanger), press the unlock button. This trick works on both old and new car models.
If you don't have these tools on hand, you can invest in a car tool kit with a curved or inflatable window wedge. Just keep in mind that using a wedge to unlock a car can be tricky, so proceed with caution. Alternatively, you can use car apps for your smartphone to unlock your car without any tools. There are also plenty of car safety features, secret uses for your key fob, and car gadgets that can improve your driving skills.
Fortunately, newer cars make it much harder to unlock them without a key. But if you find yourself standing outside your locked car with your keys inside, these tricks can save the day.
