If you have been ever locked inside your own car, you would know that it is never a pleasant experience.
The first thing that comes to your mind is to break one of your car windows.
Another option is to perform some unknown magic.
Neither of these options is recommended for one major reason; you can injure yourself in the process.
Fresno tow truck recommends four options you can explore to get out;
This is my best advice for you - always have a duplicate key at home.
It will only take a few minutes for you to place a call to one of your loved ones tell them the location of the spare key and they will come to get you out in no time.
Exiting through the trunk
If your trunk was opened when you lock yourself inside the car, then, this option is highly recommended.
Otherwise, resort to option one above.
The best example of a vehicle which provides an exit through the trunk is the sedan.
Here’s a simple 3-step checklist of what to do;
Locate the emergency cord which is linked with the back passenger seat.
Pull that cord
Lastly, crawl through the opening so that you can access your keys.
The string method
The only way for this method to work is if your car's door pulls up whenever it is opened.
If this is the case, the best way I know to make this work is to;
Tie a slipknot into the mid-section of a shoelace
From the top corner, thread the knot into the car's door.
Ensure it reaches the lock
Place the loop on the lock, tighten it and pull.
The car should open if you do it correctly.
Though, simple, you might have to practice for a few times before you are successful with it.
The hanger method
This is a method that is applicable to old modeled cars and provided you have a hanger in the car.
If your car is a new model, make use of option one.
Here’s a simple 3-step checklist to achieve success with this method;
Bend the hanger to turn it into a hook on one of its ends
Thread the hanger to the weathered part of the window and ensure that you reach the door mechanism
Hook the door mechanism, then, pull.
