How To: Unlock Car Door

The old way, just in case you are curious about it:

  • Using a wedge. It may be a given but, to unlock your car you need to gain access to the locking system from the In order to do that you have to create an opening between the door, or the window in some cases, and the body of the car. Through that gap you can now access the interior and insert the right tools to do the job. If you don’t manage to insert a big wedge to create the space you need, try to insert first a smaller one that will allow you in turn to insert the one you actually need. Don’t be rough, a metal wedge will be stronger, but it can also damage the car or the window. You could also use an inflatable wedge and pump it up once inserted.
  • Getting to the crux of the matter. Once you have the space for it, you have to insert a long tool to pull the lock tab, or press the button to unlock. Keep in mind that some modern cars have the button in the middle of the dashboard nowadays, so you would have to use a pretty long tool to reach to it.

Of course, this methods worked in old cars, but if your car is modern it needs something more sophisticated. This is how a professional locksmith could unlock your car door:

  • Car lock picks. This is the way a professional would do the job, especially with modern cars.
