Unsurprisingly, there are quite a few DIY tricks that you can try to get back into your car! These tricks however are contingent on the state of your car, what type of car it is, etc.
From shoelaces to slim jams, there are lots of different tricks and tools that can be used to unlock your car door. However, while getting your hands on a shoelace is pretty easy, getting a slim jam if you are stranded on the side of Route 66 can be a problem.
The type of car door lock you have as well as how easy it is to access the other elements of the car door will determine the extent that these tools can be used. What you are trying to do is bypass the car locks in some way so some tools might work for some locks and others… not so much.
A shoelace is not going to be very handy if you have a push lock or a sliding lock, but it will for a post lock! These DIY solutions will take you time to get the hang of and it can also potentially damage your lock if you don’t know what you are doing. If you are in an emergency situation, this might not be the solution for you.
The Most Important Things to Remember
Do it yourself methods can be easy and quick, but this all depends on if you have all the tools on hand and you actually know what you are doing.
The type of tools and tricks you will use depend on the type of locks you have and the vehicle’s security.
