Locked keys in a vehicle

Most common causes

Some new cars come with an anti-theft feature that will lock the car after couple of minutes after opening. Unfortunately, this means you might lock the car keys inside the car or in the boot. This is the most common cause of lock-outs. Most car manufacturers provide you with the spare keys but to get your car unlocked quickly, call for car locksmith.

How to open yourself

You might have a spare car key at home but if you don’t there are few tricks. You can use a coat hanger to put through the weather stripping in the window, inflatable wedge to open the door slightly to get a rod in or go for the tennis ball. Or for the real problem solving, just call Breakdown Hero.

Locksmiths

There are many car locksmiths that would attend at the roadside and try to open the doors for you. Not all of them will be able to open all cars as there are hundreds of different locks and cars. A good locksmith should quote you the price in advance. Please remember a locksmith can refuse to open a car if you cannot prove it belongs to you.
