Car Key Mistakes

Your boyfriend volunteered for the both of you to help his friend move over the weekend. You arrive at their house and go through your car exit routine—roll up the windows, turn off the car, throw your keys in your purse, and lock the doors from the inside as you get out, since your car key fob has a dead battery.

Before slamming your door shut, you realize you don’t need to tote your purse around while moving and decide to leave it in the car. You forcefully slam the door shut and just as it hits the frame of your car, you realize your mistake. You left your keys in the purse, which is now locked in your car.

With the help of 24/7 Emergency Locksmith, you can get those keys out in no time. But you don’t call for assistance. You ignore the problem, help pack and move your friend’s stuff, loading everything into the truck they rented, and attempting to get everything done quickly.

You remember you have a spare key at home but that is across town and would require you hitching a ride from your friend, taking up more time in your day and prolonging the moving process. Your boyfriend says he knows how to break into cars, not because he is a crook, but because he has a habit of locking his keys in the car as well, match made in heaven.

After packing everything up, it is time to drive to the new house and unpack it all. And now you actually need your car. You think about calling 24/7 Emergency Locksmith, but your boyfriend is determined to get your car unlocked without assistance.

So you go about the usual keys locked in car routine. Check to make sure all the doors are actually locked at least three times, check to see if the keys magically appeared on the outside of the car twice, peer into the car window as if hoping a troll will pop up from under your seat and unlock the door for you, and finish by jiggling the handle one last time.

Your boyfriend uses the claw part of a hammer to pry the door further from the frame, and you take a wire hanger, like you’ve seen in the movies, and twist it so it perfectly fits around the lock, and you pull. You actually do it, you unlocked your car without damages, without assistance, and now your feel like you can make it on the streets.

It doesn’t always turn out like this, you could have broken your window, or ruined your door in the process. Which is why you should always call for assistance. 24/7 Emergency Locksmith will always be able to help you, every hour of the day, every day of the week. Next time you make the mistake of locking your keys in the car, don’t make another, call us and we will be there to help in no time.
