2 Ways For A Locksmith To Get You Back Into Your Car

When you realize that you have managed to lock yourself out of the car, you know that you may be in for a very frustrating time. It always seems to happen when it's raining, dark, or you're in a hurry. You can try to get the door open on your own, but then you run the risk of damaging your car. There are easier ways to do it and ways that aren't likely to damage your car. One of them is to call a locksmith who specializes in getting car doors open. But, how are they going to get your car open for you?

Pick the Lock

One of the things that a locksmith can do is to actually pick the lock on your car. They have various rakes and lockpicks that they can insert into the door lock to manipulate the innards of the lock. This can be a harder way for the locksmith to get you into your car because the manufacturers tend to change the way that door locks work fairly frequently. However, if you have an older car, then this may be a good option for the locksmith to get you into your car. 

Jiggle Key

These keys can also be called bump keys or tryout guys. They get called bump keys because they get put into your door lock and then bumped or jiggled until they unlock the door of your car. There are several kinds of these guys. Some of them are manufacturer specific. For example, you may get keys that are made for Mercedes, Fords, or Chevys. There are also keys that are completely generic and could be used for any make or model out there. The locksmith will probably have a large selection of jiggle keys that they can pull out and choose from. They will look through their collection carefully so that they can choose the one or two keys that have the best chance of working on your car door and unlocking it. After they try it out and get you into your car, they may suggest that you get the lock changed, just because they may have caused some unseen damage, even being very careful. 

If you have locked yourself out of the car, there are many things that you can do get yourself back in. The smartest thing to do is to call a professional auto locksmith and have them get you back into your car. 

About Me

Choosing A Better Safe

I have always loved to hunt, which is one of the reasons that I have invested in a great gun safe. I didn't used to have a safe, which caused safety concerns with our children. I knew that I wanted to find a safe that would protect my kids from playing with my weapons, that would be easy to access if I needed to find a weapon fast, and that would stay strong for the long haul. After talking with some professional safe and key experts, I was able to find the perfect addition to our home. This blog is all about choosing an excellent safe for your place.
