You’ve got a lot on your plate lately and your mind has been busy with other things, making it easier to forget things, including the car keys inside your locked car. But you don’t have to panic.

Here are some tips on what to do when you got locked out of your car.


· Do not panic.

Panicking is the last thing you want to do when you get locked out of your car. First, double-check all the doors. You might even find an unlocked door.


· Always have a spare key.

Investing in spare keys would surely payoff over time. You can also check with your car dealer to see about obtaining a set of temporary keys. However, this does not apply if your vehicle is a keyless model.


· Unlock the door yourself.

Using an inflatable wedge is the best to use to avoid damaging the paint on your car.

Slide the inflatable wedge into the side of your driver’s door.
Cuff it until you create a small opening in the vehicle. Be sure not to cuff it too much.
Look for a slim object that can slip into the gap you created.
Using the slim object, slide it in the gap to hook the lock of your car.

Be careful while cuffing your door. You might over-inflate and cause damage to your car door. Fixing your car door will be costly, so take precautions if you choose to unlock the door yourself.


· Break your car window if it’s an emergency

Your window can be very dangerous and expensive to fix. If there is an emergency and you need to get inside of your car, you can break your car window with caution. Sidecar windows are tempered, making them very hard to break. If there is a child locked inside the car, take note of the following:

Use a sharp object like the claws of a hammer.
The strongest part of the side window is at its center. It is better to hit your hammer near the edge where it is weaker.
Choose a window that is farthest away from your child to avoid any shattered glass getting near your child.

For these types of scenarios it is best to call 911.
