@eraten: Where I live possession and use of these types of tools is for licensed locksmiths and law enforcement personnel. You can still buy them and use them but if a police officer finds out then you get charged with possession of burglary tools.

The tool on the far right will open almost any car with power locks. It works by going under the window, up into the car, and over to the arm rest where the unlock button is. If you happen to have a car with no door frame around the windows and isn't fancy enough to push the windows up into the roof when you close the door, you don't need any tools, you can shove a stick between the window and door and open the door with the interior door handle (Mercury Cougar is the poster child of anyone can get in your car).

The one and only time I'd have ever needed these was about 20 years ago, when I locked all my keys in my apartment. I found a wire coat hanger in the yard that I opened my car with, then took off the fanbelt and using that through the letterbox on the apartment door I was able to loop it round the knob and open the lock. Then I immediately went to a hardware store and bought a cage for the letterbox and a deadbolt so I and others would never be able to do that again...looking at the lock structure on my current car I don't think I'd be able to open it with these tools.

I need one of these....for science

Hmm, a set of mischief for $14.99, or simply go get a door key duplicated at the nearest hardware store for $5... I think I will take the lockout set. Now, if Woot would only sell a trench coat and a Ski mask combo

@droskie3000: Ok, but I want my keys to open it and they're not in the car.

@blend23: well if your in your 2010 model car, you could just reach to your right/left and use the unlock button.

vote-for-1vote-against

What if you're in your car (2010 model) and lock your keys out of your car?

Would this kit help? Would a locksmith be better or maybe a doctor?

vote-for3vote-against

@markmc27: that is one of the most expensive windows to replace. Knock out the full sized one, you'll thank yourself later

The deal was better when it included a free Ski Mask....

What if you're in your locked car and your keys are outside?

vote-for2vote-against

@tcayer: actually it comes with 2 wedges...

@eraten: depends where you live. slimjims/blackjacks are most definitely illegal to own where I live.

vote-for2vote-against

I have an app on my iphone that has all these tools

vote-for2vote-against

All you need is a VIN number, a licensed dealer, and $50.

If you get one of these, everybody is going to ask you to unlock their doors, and when you scratch it, you are liable. The cops in my area don't even provide this service anymore because of that.

vote-for1vote-against

Easier to keep a spare key in my wallet. Rolfs wallets have a key holder.

vote-for2vote-against

@mybestuser1: These aren't illegal to own, just illegal to have in your backpack next to your bolt cutters and crackpipe.

THE CAKE IS A LIE...and so is the $2.99 shipping. The wootlock coupon just enables $3.99 shipping for the entire order.

In for one!

In completely unrelated news I am now a car thief...

@countdown: It also won't work if the keys you have in the locked car has your house key on it.

from the people who brought you the open-world action of "Grand Theft Auto: IV" comes the new closed-cell regret of "Grand Theft Auto: 6 to 10!"

Just carry an extra key with you.

This doesn't include the wedge and the tool to go inside the door. These are all for use down the inside of the door. WARNING: NOT to be used in cars with airbags in the door!!! If you short the airbag and discharge it, that shiny tool will be shot through your forehead! That's why you see AAA and police using the long rod inside the door frame now...

...or keep a spare key at home.

I guess this doesn't help you if you are travelling out of town, but how often do people actually lock themselves out? I guess I am young, but I can't say I've ever locked my keys in. For how often it happens, I'll just pay.

vote-for2vote-against

The only one that still works is the wire hanger thing that goes through the window, if you luckly enough to have it cracked. I use to keep a slim-jim under my car incase I locked myself out or needed for someone else.

vote-for2vote-against

You don't really have to jimmy anything down between the window and door and fish around for a lock rod... so much as you just have to find something to slip through the door seal to press the power lock button.

This is a great tool to keep in your car in case of an emergency. Just break in the back window, grab your tools, then pop the front lock. You'll be back in your car in no time.

vote-for9vote-against

It is worth mentioning that it will do no good if you keep it in the car, you know, cause most people seem to be away from home when they do this. It seems a little large to fit in a regular pocket. AAA does seem the better deal. My husband would love it anyway though, so, this is a good gift idea for those who love gadgets regardless of whether they are useful or not. Or hey, if you are passive aggressive and use it as a "gag" gift.

I used to use this all the time, bit more expensive but it will get you into any car, truck, 18 wheeler, yada yada...

That's right, get your name in the paper for only $14.99. "Arrested for possession of criminal tools"

Depending on where you live these tools are possibly illegal. I know some of them are illegal where I live.

Do the instructions show you how to hotwire the ignition once you get inside the vehicle?

vote-for4vote-against

misdemeanors not included... :)

My 96 and 97 vehicles were popped readily by the long looped plastic thing. I think those are pretty universally effective if you know what you're doing. Scary that you could totally make one with like no effort and easily available materials.

If a coat hanger won't get it....

Wow! The instruction manual includes instructions for unlocking your Ferrari, Lamborghini or Rolls Royce...
yet apparently, the manufacturer hasn't been able to figure out how to get past the TOP-notch security of Kia, Hyundai, Pontiac or Buick!

All right!! I get this deal and a new car stereo! lol

Should I be worried that the car they show looks exactly like mine?

@markmc27: or just call AAA, cheaper than replacing a window.

I own one of these, if your car is American pre 1992? maybe yes.Otherwise take a rock to the small rear window sorry.
