Murphy’s law tells us that if something can go wrong, it probably will and most likely at the worst time imaginable. Don’t panic just yet though, if you’re in or near a city of some size, there is a good chance that help is near. I am talking of course about car locksmiths. These are locksmiths that specialize in cars and can help you.

Ever thought about how criminals steal cars? Well, now you have the chance to try it for yourself, on your own car of course. Older cars have locks that are fairly easy to pick. What you need is a long tool like a screwdriver and also a tension wrench.

Your goals it put something into the lock that will push back the safety pins, then turn the lock. A flat screwdriver will do the job. Simply rumage around until you feel or hear the pins going back, then turn the screwdriver with a tension wrench. Just keep in mind that lockpicking isn’t exactly and everyday activity in most places. You may get a few strange looks or even have to explain yourself to a police officer.
