Tennis Ball!

Videos went viral when people were filming others unlocking a car door using a humble tennis ball. Once a hole has been cut or drilled into the tennis ball (no real specifications for size), the user will align the hole in the tennis ball to the lock in question and push the air out of the ball, into the lock. The idea here is that air pressure can unlock the door.

  • Pro: If it works, it’s a really cheap way to unlock your car in an emergency.
    Cons: If it works at all, it doesn’t work with all cars. Also, unless you think ahead, you probably won’t have a tennis ball lying around let alone the tools to make the hole in it.

Controversy: People are saying online that the videos showing this method working must be hoaxes. This could be easily done by having someone off the screen using the key fob with the lock/unlock features.

Cell Phone!

This one sounds insane. If Bob loses his keys and John has a spare electronic entry key fob to Bob’s car they can use their cell phones and the key fob to unlock the door. While on the phone John hits the key fob open button near the phone while Bob has his phone near the car. The theory states that the phone can transmit the radio frequency across the wireless service to unlock the car.Locksmith Service -The Internet's Solutions To Locked Doors

  • Pro: Sounds pretty simple. And awesome.
    Con: If it does work, it’s not with all cars. And honestly, if someone has your spare key fob and can mess around on the phone with you, they should be able to come give you the spares.

Controversy: Very little science backs this one up. Similar to the tennis ball method, it’s likely that someone was close enough to unlock the door with the fob at a reasonable range.

Hanger!

This method involves straightening a hanger and leaving a small hook on one end and maneuvering the hanger to the locking mechanism between the door panels. The other method suggests you can use a hanger or other slender metal device to pry the door open enough (sometimes using pieces of plastic or small air bags) to wedge a piece of wire to reach the lock and open it.

  • Pro: Everyone’s either tried this or known someone who has. It’s two of the most common methods and they make the most sense.
    Cons: Finding a hanger without the use of your car can prove to be difficult. It also takes a lot of practice and you run the risk of causing permanent damage to your locking mechanisms, doors, and probably your paint job.

Any of these methods can be found online (YouTube, forums, Facebook posts, etc) but most of them are very, very unlikely to work or they require materials most people don’t have on hand (but they might have in their locked car).

As fun and interesting as these are, you will always be better off calling a locksmith. At Anytime Locksmith, we take pride in our work and we will unlock your doors even if you have tried to use the internet to avoid calling us.
