Good way to get arrested. However though, watch out because some cars with the automatic door locks will not work with a kit like this. I used to hang out with some police guys and they would do unlocks on people that had left their keys in the car. They could not though do anything with certain cars with automatic door locks because something about a safety feature that would prevent them from tripping the proper latch.

I'll just carry these in my back pocket in case I ever lock my keys in the car.

with all the lock pick sets and now this, i'm kind of curious what's next

@tsfisch: i'll keep it in the trunk, with life hammer.

$14.99 comes with free car(s).

Always keep one of these in your car in case you accidentally lock yourself out of it...

I recommend getting the deluxe version of this. It includes a look-out, in case the cops become interested in you "unlocking your car."

Just owning these in some states can earn you a free trip to the hoosegow.

love how it's illegal to ship the bb guns from yesterday to california, but this is A-OK.
Once again, I have to say ASSHATS in SACRAMENTO.

I used to have a cheapy that I got from Harbor Freight for a few (or less) bucks. I kept it in the bathroom of my old work, so if I ever locked my keys in my car or truck, it would be there. I actually did lock myself out of my truck a few times and it worked like a charm. It worked on my co-worker's truck, too, when he locked himself out. These could be handy to keep in your garage, in case something similar happens. My neighbor locked her keys and cellphone in her mini-van, after she got home and before opening her house, so she came to my house to have me call AAA for her. If I had one of these, I probably could have saved them the trip.

@tweakx4: A micro camera / card reader. Handy for retrieving your ATM info.

If you are not careful you can do damage with these. Granted recently I locked my keys in my van and the guy roadside assistance sent was not particularly careful nor appeared to be particularly skilled. He got mine open with something that looked very similar to this with out any damage.

These are junk. They can be had for much less than this, I have bought one. And was disappointed. Pure junk. The only parts that have done me any good are the wedges, and those are worth what, 50 cents ?

vote-for14vote-against

Yeah but, what if you lock yourself IN the car? These are useless then.

@spandya22: But you need a different set of skills entirely to deal with people who lock themselves in their car.

vote-for8vote-against

Just what I needed! My chop shop has hit some hard times, so a few sets of these may just help turn that around.

@misry: Agreed. Fire will also help those people.

vote-for3vote-against

@spandya22: That's why you need to keep a set of these INSIDE the car as well.

Does it come with an alarm turner-offer?

vote-for6vote-against

all the guys I've seen recently use those little air cushions. They slide it into the door, pump it up, and stick a close hanger in to press the unlock bottom. Much faster than when they used to use the jimmy's

I just carry a brick in case someone locks their keys in their car

@walmartman:The inflatable or solid wedges are the best. Although I haven't seen them for sale online.

On all modern cars, you are not trying to "jimmy" the lock, you are trying to go under the window and back up on the inside and then down to press the unlock button (tool that looks like lower case 'n'). In some cases it is easier to actually actuate the interior door handle than hit the unlock button.

Some cars, usually convertibles or older sports cars where the door window does not have a frame around the glass and the glass doesn't pop up into the roof when you close the doors can be easily opened with no special tools. Just pull or wedge the window glass away from the roof line (it will flex about an inch without breaking) and slide a stick of some kind in and use it to open the door handle from the inside. A pitching wedge or thin headed iron is the easiest as you get the head in the handle and rotate to open (neighbor girl locked her keys in her Cougar every other day).

let it be known, if you buy this, a drone will be monitoring you

The risk of arrest can be completely removed if you leave an extra set of all keys with a trusted neighbor, friends, hidden on a porch or yard, a nearby trusted store-owner, or carry a second set of only the essential keys in your back pocket. Take care that there is no identification which will link your keys to your car or home.

These are not legal in my state but ive had a set for 10+ years, have helped out 20 people and every time a cop sees whats going on they shake my hand.

I guess its kinda up to what you are doing with them that may or may not get you in trouble.

This could've been perfect for DH, who is constantly getting locked out of his truck. He now has breaking into it down to a science, so he has no need for this.

@kylemittskus: Acutally, I do. Not many bars here, unfortunately. But it's nice to out at night without carrying a rape whistle.

Check legality in your state. Most just require you to show intent, but it can't hurt to check.
