Just like it says. I locked my keys in my car and need to get them out. I really don't want to break any glass or anything like that. I don't want to hear what I need or should or could do to keep this from happening. I'm very tired I just got home from work last night and need my keys out. Do yall have some tricks or something. Please help.

Are they power locks?? knob buttons? Flat rounded? If it has any kind of top to the knob to pull up, we used a coat hanger and hooked it tight and pulled it up, because if it is power locks, you can't get the hanger in through the side.

just call up a locksmith or maybe the local pd? around here you can call up a place called pop a lock, thats all they do is open locked cars for people.

Definitely the "best way", but not the cheapest. Although probably cheaper than breaking out a window!! :thumbsup:

Does anyone know if a slim jim will work on an MN12?

I tried it and it wouldn't. I used to repo. cars and if I remember it takes some other tool. I got them out though. I'm very good about things like that. I don't use it to steal or break and enter. So yall can sleep soundly tonight. That's what I'm going to go do now. Later!

Nope we tried that first that is why I said power locks ya can't go in from the side of the window. There is a box that is in front of the switch. We used a coat hanger through the top of the window.

if you bend the slim jim in an S shape it will work fine. You just have to bend it so it curves underneath the window and pull the interior door handle rod.

You know I locked my keys in my trunk the other day. Of course the windows were all the way up and the doors locked. I ended up having to call a tow service to open it up. The had the wedge and a long enough rod to hit the unlock switch for the locks. Man I wish I had keyless entry...

Always carry a spare key. My Super Coupe has the keyless entry, and still carry a spare to be safe.

I locked the keys in my work truck before. I called the roadside assistance I bought with my cell phone. They came out and unlocked it. Thats the best $3 a month I have ever paid for. Ive had my car towed several times and dont pay a thing. Thats the only good thing I can say about Sprint.
