What Should I Do If I’m Locked Out Of My Car?

It happens to the best of us: you go to close your car door and just as the latch hits, you realize your keys are still inside after you’ve already locked it. Depending on your location, you have a few options for safely getting back into your vehicle without causing damage:

Is One of Your Windows Open?

Did you accidentally leave one of your windows cracked? If your window is open and there is enough room to reach inside, you may be able to unlock your car with your hand or by using a bent hanger to snake through the car, to the closest lock.

Do You Have a Spare Key?

If your vehicle came with a spare transponder key, now is the perfect time to use it! Your key should be kept in a safe location outside of your vehicle. If your key is at home, call one of your family members to bring the key to your location. You’ll be back on the road in no time!

Contact a Local Locksmith

If you cannot safely gain access to the car or do not have a spare key, call a local automotive locksmith! A professional will be trained in safely opening your vehicle without causing damage to the lock mechanism or the exterior of your vehicle. If your key has snapped inside the lock or ignition, a locksmith will be able to extract the broken key, cut and reprogram a replacement on-site to work on your car, allowing you to get into your car without any hassle.
