Car Lockout: What Not to Do
If you get locked out of your car, you might find yourself frantically googling information on how to get into your car yourself. There are a lot of do-it-yourself approaches, but none of them are easy.
People always suggest using a hanger to unlock your car, but the auto lockout experts at Bob's Lock & Safe strongly advise against this method.
If you use a coat hanger to break into your car, you might literally break something. People think that sliding the coat hanger down the door will work, but the hanger can permanently damage the car’s window and door.
Lots of Dallas residents have tried the tennis ball method for a locked door as well. What people do is simple: they cut a small, key-sized hole into the tennis ball. Then they hit the punctured side of the ball against the locked car’s keyhole. The logic here is that the air from inside the ball will rush into the keyhole and unlock the door. This method has seen some success, but only on older vehicles. In the time you waste attempting to get out yourself, a locksmith could already be on their way!
Lastly: Don’t panic!
Children or Pets Locked in Your Car
Accidentally locking an infant or a pet in a vehicle can be a terrifying experience. On hot days the temperature inside a car is almost unbearable. If the situation is not handled quickly, things can go from bad to worse very quickly.
First, we recommend that you never leave the car. Leaving your child or pet alone might cause them to panic. Secondly, we recommend immediately calling 911 for emergency assistance. After 911 has been contacted, you can make a call to an emergency locksmith.
If it is a hot day, you should drape some of your belongings over the car windows. Doing this will block the sunlight from getting into the car. Providing shade will bring some needed relief to your child or pet.Call Bob's Lock & Safe Today
