Can’t view it here? Watch it here instead: http://vimeo.com/16040269
A friend of mine locked herself out of her car the other day and her keys were in the car. Since locksmiths are closed on sundays, we had to figure out a different solution of how to get into her car. The car was a 1998 toyota corolla with power locks. Of course an option that is open is to break a window, but people much prefer not to do that. I called a buddy of mine who has a lock-pick set and asked him about possibly picking the lock. He said that car locks are special and they cannot be easily picked like house door locks. In lieu of all this, it started making me think of ways to possibly break into her car. From having one of my other friends lock himself out of his car before as well, I thought back to what we did then. The cops had came by because some suspicious neighbor had called the cops on us, and he managed to wedge a triangle in the door where the rubber wind flap was, and use a long metal rod to press the power lock button. Essentially I did the same thing for my friend, except since her car was running I was able to push the button to make the window go down with a long bendy piece of metal. This took me all of 5 minutes to do. My two things I take away from this story are (1) when I am stuck, I just have to remember to study the system I am trying to break into and see how I could possibly break it (panicking is never good) and (2) I’m amazed at how useless car locks are. I guess the right tools are better than any key.
