Unlocking a Lock Yourself
To begin, the importance of this point should not be overlooked. Cars are deliberately constructed to resist intrusion—you will require specialized tools and knowledge to access your vehicle successfully. Popular online methods for unlocking a car yourself can further damage it if done incorrectly, as they involve prying back the door frame or forcing an object between the window and door frames. Keep in mind that any slip-up may have serious consequences on the structural integrity of your car’s doors!
For example, consider the screwdriver and metal rod method. You may attempt to open your car door by prying it back and wedging the metal rod in; however, this could cause an unfortunate dent in your door frame or even break a window due to an accidental impact. Though you might not necessarily destroy your vehicle’s door when attempting DIY unlocking, you are more prone to causing permanent damage with such methods.
Unfortunately, your auto insurer won’t pay for any damage you caused to it yourself. To make matters worse, even the slightest dents or blemishes on the door frame will serve as an invitation to burglars – like a beacon of light signaling them where exactly they should pry open.
While you may think a slim jim or wire hanger would be an easy way to open your car door, the fact remains that only certified auto locksmiths have the know-how and expertise necessary to properly use these tools without causing damage. Without this specialized training, using either of these methods could result in irreparable airbag and wiring harm inside your vehicle—not even mention making it vulnerable to break-ins. So if you want peace of mind knowing that no further damages will occur, let the professionals handle unlocking your doors.
