I'll just keep this in my car next to my keys.

vote-for22vote-against

right, does it come with a giant hide-a-jimmy magnetic box so I can tack it to the underside of my vehicle?

So... somehow you're supposed to have this on you at all times... and no one will think you're stealing your own car?

@nbass7007: I'm too smart to make that mistake. I'm going tape mine to my driver's side door.

No thanks...a metal hanger works for me every time!

Dude, I locked my Universal Car Opening Kit inside my car!

vote-for13vote-against

be carefull with these its against the law in a lot of areas to have these if you are not a locksmith or wrecker.

It's not intended for use on the car that it is stored in.

If you thought that, you might want to consider making spare keys instead.

These will go great with my pistol grip-shaped seat belt buckles.

Cheaper on Amazon with free shipping for Prime Members and also two not so great reviews about the quality of this contraption

Getting a spare key and putting it in your wallet or purse might be a better idea. I had a BMW one time and i was able to get a small plastic key from the dealership. The 9-piece set isn't exactly something you'd be carrying with you everywhere

I bought this exact kit from the army surplus store (same price BTW). Very versatile. I love seeing hot girls locked out of their car on campus. I have done about 30+ unlocks and never had one I could not get open.

Didn't Ted Bundy have the same pick up move?

Thanks...excuse me while I go install lo-jack and a kill switch on my car...
I don't know which will do more damage...this kit, or a tutorial on how to steal civics posted on youtube...

every time I lock my keys in my car I just buy another car. badump bum!

Having a spare key in one of those magnetic boxes, duct-taped to the back of the car tag or inside body, or even AAA is cheaper and faster.

@angerbender 30+ cars on campus you say. Hot girls you say. I always wondered how the hot girl car bandit got into my Toyota that day. Case closed.

I got one of these on ubid 5ish years ago for like $2 ... its already paid for itself multiple times =)

I don't see how any one of those tools can be used to smash out the window. Pass.

vote-for2vote-against

Only problem is that you never lock yourself out while at home, its always when you are away somewhere..so this is probably useless.. The best thing I ever did was make a spare key and slip it in my wallet

vote-for8vote-against

Will these work on any car? Because I could use a new Ferrari

Comments are all tongu in cheek or people really don't notice it only gets you into the car. It doesn't buypass the igntion or wheel lock.

Guys if you have side airbags, PLEASE be careful... We lost a member of our shop on a routine lock out call. I cant say the make of the car but it had side air bags and one triggered itself and sent the jimmy into his neck. BE CAREFUL!!!!!!!!

vote-for16vote-against

As I locksmith I can say that the tools in the picture can be used to open most of the cars on the road, it is also illegal in most places to be in possession of burglar tools(just a word of warning). Out of my entire kit the ones pictured are the ones I use most.

Also the side airbag thing is a myth. Side air bags are on the inside skin of the car door, not where you would be inserting these tools.

vote-for11vote-against

@bipefreak: Eh, I find this statement a bit hard to swallow... First off, airbags are deployed based on a change in velocity (Delta V). Was your friend running 35 MPH beside the car down the road when it hit an oak tree?

Second, side airbags do not deploy outside of the car, so unless he had his head inside the car for some reason, I fail to see how his head would of been hit. This of course raises the question, if he could put his head into the car, then the window must of been down a fair amount.... why would a lock out kit be needed in the first place?

3rd, as best I know, most airbag systems are not active with the ignition off. Parked cars do not have powered airbag systems.

4th, did he somehow mangle the wiring harness up, shorted a line that had battery voltage to the wiring of the airbag harness? This would take a fair amount of effort to screw something up that much.

Too many loop holes in your statement.

I bought a set of these online 20 years ago. Used to have contests with my friends to see who could open our cars the fastest... sometimes it turned into who could screw up the door handle or locking mechanism requiring us to take the door apart to hook stuff back up. It was fun. I still keep them around, though to be fair a basic slim jim isn't enought anymore because many cars have panels in place to stop it from touching parts. I'd practice a few times on your own car, passenger side, to get the hang of it before offering your services to a locked out friend or stranger.

And do heed the warnings about legality of these, if a cop sees you trying to open a car like this, they are likely to ask questions and depending on your city or state laws you may need a license to even possess them. Also in this sue happy world, be aware that it can be easy to mess something up on someone's car.

@cappomutato: You're doing it wrong.

No really if you get enough swing on the big slim jim, especially if you can get one of the other parts attached to the tip, you are sure to smash a window right out.

@regal1988:
Couldn't agree more. Spare keys in the wallet has saved my behind more times than I can remember over the years. My Town & Country has one of those fancy remote-type keys with the chip in it but I managed to get my hardware store to find an equivalent flat key that matched. It won't start the car but it will open the door...

@eweisstkd: The hotwire kit should be coming soon.

@superninja: Glad you cleared that up. I was about to be in for one to keep under the backseat in case I locked my driver's door with my keys in the ignition.

vote-for2vote-against

Have you people seen a VW (pic) key? They are HUGE. Even the plastic vallet ones are big.

Plus my VW (and I belive the one pictured) Doesn't have anything for the 'slim jim' to grab onto.

I had a friend who waited for 4 hours before the locksmith broke a back window to get his VW open. We would have been better off driving my car back to his house and back (about 300 miles round trip) to get his spare key.

I'm in for one just in case I lock my keys in my Ford and I happen to forget the passcode for its keypad entry and my cell phone battery also happens to die cuz that's where I backup the passcode in case I do get amnesia.

@sumduud: you bought something online in 1992?

works for AAA works for me.

I left work one day for a Doctor's appointment only to discover I had locked the car with the key in the ignition. The parking lot attendant grabbed the flat tool in this package slipped it between the rubber and the glass and worked it for maybe 10 seconds and opened the car for me. No damage and no delay. Bottom line, they work.

This works great! It got me out of my car in just minutes!

Maybe not to yourself but these might come handy for someone in need or in an accident?

@akhoward: That's only a three-digit combination. If someone found it on your car they could break the combination before you get back from wherever you left your car to go. Might as well save yourself the $9 and just duct tape your spare key to your windshield.

vote-for1vote-against

after shipping you can buy this for $2.20 cheaper on Amazon? wow, what a deal!

@mrau92me:
I posted that because of a few clueless peoples posts, inferring that they thought this tool is intended for your own car.

It's not.

Its usefulness is in you being able to unlock other peoples cars. (people that are so ill-prepared that they never bothered to make or carry spare keys)

vote-for1vote-against

I'm a criminal, So this is an awesome deal, But why buy it when I can just steal it? Also where will this be when you need it? It will be in your locked car that’s where!!

A related word of warning... which probably won't be seen at this point ... but be careful about asking the police for help with car lockouts if they happen in MA (or possibly other states), as the officer may ticket you as well as letting you in. It turns out it's a motor vehicle violation in MA to park your car with the keys inside. Seriously. It's on the list of surchargeable events for the license points system. (M.G.L. c. 90, § 13)
