Tennis Ball

We are a bit doubtful about it, but it obviously works. Make a hole in the tennis ball, place it over the keyhole, and push. The air force from the ball should open the car.

Use your shoelace (To Open The Locked Car Without Keys)

It may take a while and will only work for a car with a pulling-up locking device, but it’s not difficult. In addition, you are very likely to have this instrument handy. Tie a small loop, gently push the shoelace into the door, get the loop around the lock, and pull it up.

Use a coat hanger

This method will only work with horizontal locks. Untwist a wire coat hanger, make a hook, and work it into the door. Get the hook around the lock, and pull.

Use a rod and a screwdriver

Rod And Screw Driver
You have to be very careful with this method because the screwdriver can easily damage the interior and exterior of the car. The method is the same: create a bit of space with the screwdriver, and push the lock with the rod.

Use a spatula

Insert the lever, and wedge the door open so you can push the spatula in and lift the lock to unlock your car if you locked your keys inside.

Use an inflatable wedge

This method has the same principle as the screwdriver method, but it uses air to open the door instead of a metal object. With this tool, you can open the car in a minute. The plus side of this method compared to the screwdriver? No paint damage. The bad side? This tool can be quite expensive.

Use a strip of plastic
