Keys Locked in your car? No more coat hangers and Slim Jims for Modern Cars: Mr. Locksmith

Locked out? Need Keys? Keys locked in your car? or worst, keys locked in the trunk?

When I passed my drivers license (one day after I turned 16yrs old) and I could now, after school and weekends, do emergency mobile locksmith service. My favorite locksmith job was “keys locked in car.” I could open any car with a homemade long piece of banding steel (later I bought a “Slim Jim”) and a coat hanger with a Sheperd’s hook bent on one end. I later updated my coat hanger to a chrome coat hanger (people got upset when I just used a plain coat hanger).

I could open any car in less than 60 seconds. Today with modern cars with anti-theft devices, air bags in the door, pick resistant locks I have a large car opening kit filled with air wedges, long reach tools that glow in the dark, bendable tools with hooks and lasso and a computer program to help me open the harder cars. Also, I have specialized lock picks to open pick resistant locks (BMW, Lexus, etc.).

Note: Tennis balls blowing air into the keyhole will not open any car (fun stunt on Youtube).
