3. Opening car without a key but with a screwdriver.

Unlocking your car lock without a key is possible. Indeed, you need only a screwdriver. It is a commonly used solution and is therefore often named on various forums. Be aware that you will undoubtedly damage the car. Choose a screwdriver when the need is high. One of these forums discussed this solution:

Screwdriver car opening without a key

“Take a flat sharp screwdriver, put it diagonally under the lock in that black protruding lock body and give it a blow. And virtually without damage, your lock is open.”

“Get a towel and a screwdriver, put the cloth against the paint and push the door open with the screwdriver.”

“First of all, pulled off the rubber edge and then using the other door as a guide, estimated where the button should be. Thin screwdriver was fretted in between and pushed the knob down.Tadaaa… minor scratches on the inside of the door near the child lock knob, but I don’t care. The door just opens from the inside again and that’s the most important thing.”

4. Open car without damage? Don’t forget the tailgate.

This may sound somewhat simple, but it is forgotten by many people: the tailgate. It occurs with some regularity that the tailgate can open, while the car appears to be shut tight. This was discussed on the various forums on the Internet:

Tailgate key lost

“Breaking open your car is not necessary. Just to be safe, check your tailgate. Recently I had forgotten my key in the car and was in a panic. How did I get into my car? Finally, I checked my tailgate and fortunately it was not locked.”

“Keys still left inside the car? Breaking open your car without damage is possible. Check your trunk. It often happens that it is still open. This way you can still easily get inside!”

5. Key forgotten in car: Do you have a spare key?

This may seem like an unnecessary tip, but of course a spare key is a great solution! Opening your car with iron wire or climbing in through the trunk is no longer necessary. The spare key has also been much discussed on the Internet, see below:

key forgotten spare key

“Have a spare key made. Small effort, lots of fun!”

“Check the spare key! Often these keys are nearby (at your home or friends’ homes) and then you still have a good chance of ‘just’ opening your car again.”

“A simple solution is: get the spare key! After all, you had it made right? If not, you can do this at any professional key maker. Within minutes you’ll have a spare key and be able to get back into your car.”

6. A runner set is always handy!

A runner is a special key that fits a variety of locks. Keys are usually made to fit one lock. A token set (full of handy token keys) is the exception. It is important that you do have a runner set made in the 1980s. After all, it won’t work otherwise. On the Internet, we came across several forums where the use of the runner set was discussed:

runner set key lost

“Yep, the runner almost always works!”

“Purchase a runner? Mmmm, I’d like that too. Almost all the cars just on one key.”

7. Don’t forget the car windows

Of course, it is a last resort, but you can also smash a window to get inside and open the door. This applies to pure emergencies. This is due to the fact that any experienced locksmith will open your doors harmlessly. Nevertheless, this solution is much discussed on the Internet:

car windows key forgotten

“In the extreme, I would just smash a window.”

“Then I’d sooner nick my window…. gives less paint damage, and you don’t bend anything…. 2nd hand windshield and you’re done!”

Hi! Yesterday I slammed the door in the evening and left the key inside. I called and ordered this master. Then I read the reviews here and was surprised how many negative reviews there are) I called them and said that I didn’t want to fall into their trap if they tried to scam me. Fortunately for me, there was no deception, everything was very adequate, the master was very pleasant and polite. Very nice price for services. Everything was done quickly and without damage. When I asked why there were so many negative reviews here, he replied that he had just bought this company and is building a reputation. Don't be afraid to reach out to these guys. Everything was very clear and professional on their part. I recommend!

The cost of drilling the lock was extremely high. I paid 220 euros, excluding taxes, just for a hole in the lock. I didn't even request a new lock, but if I had, it would have cost even more. The service was quick, with the technician arriving at my home within 40 minutes. They managed to open the door without damaging the frame, only the lock. The technician was also friendly, which is why I am giving them a higher rating. However, I still feel that 220 euros for drilling a lock is excessive, even for a company. It would have been more reasonable if the cost included a lock replacement.

Sleutel aan de binnenkant van de deur laten zitten, stom! Ze stonden gelukkig zelfs op zondag binnen 20 minuten voor de deur en Jeffrey maakte onze deur snel en zonder schade open. Super blij mee, ik zou ze zeker weer bellen.
