10 Genius Tricks That Can Help You Open the Car If You Locked Your Keys Inside

If you have ever lost your keys or locked them inside the car, you know how hard and stressful it can be trying to get your door open.

So how would you open your car door without a key? We found a few workarounds to help you get back in when you’re locked out.

Method #1: Use a tennis ball.

We are a bit skeptical about it, but it apparently works. Make a hole in the tennis ball, place it over the keyhole, and push. The air force from the ball should unlock the car.

Method #2: Use your shoelace.

It may take a while and will only work for a car with a pulling-up locking mechanism, but it’s not impossible. In addition, you are very likely to have this tool handy. Tie a small loop, gently push the shoelace into the door, get the loop around the lock, and pull it up.

Method #3: Use a coat hanger.

This method will only work with horizontal locks. Untwist a wire coat hanger, make a hook, and work it into the door. Get the hook around the lock, and pull.

Method #4: Use a rod and a screwdriver.

You have to be very careful with this method because the screwdriver can easily damage the interior and exterior of the car. The principle is the same: create a bit of space with the screwdriver, and push the lock with the rod.
