Methods for Unlocking a Car Door
Successfully unlocking a car door without the proper key will largely be dependent on the design of the lock. If you have an older car, the method may be somewhat less involved and complicated compared to a newer car with a proximity or keyless entry system.
A simpler method (you may have seen it in movies and TV shows), could be using a wire hanger or a flat steel bar to manipulate the lock through the weather strip. Using this method, one tries to find the mechanism that unlocks the door lock by feeling their way to it. There’s also something called the string method. This technique only works with door locks that are on to the door sill (the ones that have knobs that look something like golf tees at the base of your door window). More modern vehicles require further expertise. Rest assured, 24 Hr Car Unlocking has successfully provided solutions to just about every imaginable car lock-out situation there is, whether for motorists here in Kansas City or in neighboring areas.
Of course, with today’s vehicles, even economy models offer transponder keys as a basic security feature. The plastic key fob goes with the steel blade everyone is familiar with, but the electronics inside the fob will need to be synced to the corresponding circuit in the steering column in order to start the car. The car’s alarm will be triggered and the car will not engage the ignition circuit in the event that the key and vehicle circuits do not recognize each other. Plenty of cars today come with keyless entry in which case you press a button on the fob, or a transmitter and sensor pair senses their proximity to each other and unlocks the car without further action from the owner. There are variations, of course. Thankfully, 24 Hr Car Unlocking has wide-ranging expertise throughout the Kansas City region. This proximity feature also enables the car to be started using just a starter button on the dash or in the console area. Touch panel controls on the door are also included on some cars, with the combinations set by the owner, and with individual combinations assigned to specific users. These electronic systems are synced with various security systems in the cars, from alarms and immobilizers to smartphone notifications and GPS tracking.
Auto Unlocking: Tools of the Trade
Some of the tools professionals use to unlock car doors are available and can be easily purchased. Lockpicks, bump keys, Slim Jims, manual and pneumatic wedges, shaped rods—all can be found for sale online or Home Depot, and at relatively fair prices too. DIY instructions for handmade lockpicks are even available online. But a word of warning: without appropriate training and practice using these tools, there is a strong likelihood that a car owner could incur real damages. Here in San Kansas City, trust 24 Hr Car Unlocking Emergency Roadside Services to get the job efficiently and arrive quickly.
