Why you shouldn’t break into your own car
Posted 06/27/22 by Elspeth McIntyre
We know you’ve seen them! Those how-to videos on the best way of getting into your car if you’ve locked yourself out. But trust us when we say, call an auto locksmith instead.
Leave the how-to videos for baking a new cake recipe; breaking into your car after locking yourself out is a recipe for disaster.
You could hurt yourself
We’ve all seen the movies where wrapping your hand with a t‑shirt and smashing it into the window seems like a promising idea — or even using a coat hanger to slide into the window to gain access to the car. Here at 3D Autokeys, we’ve seen a variety of dangerous ‘solutions’ available online to gain access to your vehicle.
Not only do these options damage your car, but you could be looking at a potential visit to the hospital if things were to go wrong.
Stay safe. Call an auto locksmith.
You could damage your vehicle
In over 20 years in the industry, we have seen so much damage caused by failed attempts. We’ve seen broken window seals, damaged doors, and scratched paintwork, and this is just the minimum.
Let’s forget the possibility of you hurting yourself. Instead, let’s avoid the costly bill of having to fix damage caused by your DIY attempts.
No one wants to take their car to the garage and explain why hundreds of pounds worth of damage needs fixing, which will total more than calling us out to solve your car key issues!
It’s more complicated than you think
It’s no secret cars are more high-tech than they have ever been! All modern vehicles are fitted with comprehensive anti-theft technology.
Great for protecting your car from being stolen, but guess what? It also means that it will be way more challenging to gain entry to your vehicle.
Don’t believe everything you see on the internet
You’ll find thousands of step-by-step guides if you’ve tried Googling how to break into your car.
The risk is that what might work for one car doesn’t necessarily work for another. So, unless you can find a guide for your vehicle’s exact make and model, you could waste a lot of time.
