One of the things a locksmith helps customers with is getting the keys out of a locked car. This could involve using tools that will open the door from the inside if the window is down a small portion. It could also involve working with the lock on the outside of the car in order to get the car door lock unlatched.
There are a few ways that one can prevent the keys from getting locked inside the car.
Using a long key chain that you can clearly see when you turn the key off is a good way to make sure you take your keys with you when you get out of the car. Another option is to use a neon key chain that is easy to see as it stands out against the steering column.
Checking Your Hands
When you get out of the car, make sure you have the keys in your hand before you close the door. Also, use the remote locking device so you know the keys are in your hand as this is the only way the door can get locked.
Sometimes, you’re too used to having your keys in your hands when getting out of your car that it feels odd when you don’t have it. Use that tickle to help you remember your keys and avoid being locked out.
Make sure you keep a spare key in your wallet, purse and even in an area of the outside of the car where you can easily find the key if you do lock the door. If the key doesn't have a chip in it or an automatic locking mechanism, then it will be less expensive for the locksmith to make.
