A spare key is one of those things that never seems like a huge deal until you need it. If you've ever lost your keys, had them stolen, or locked yourself out of your house or car, you know how difficult and embarrassing it can be trying to get your door open.
So, how would you open your car door without a key? And what about if you're locked out of your house? Here are a few workarounds to help you get back in when you're locked out.
Unlocking a Car Door Without a Key
The locking mechanisms on different types of cars vary pretty widely. All newer models have power locks with remote controls to open them, but older cars open only manually. Also, some vehicles have the locking knob on the inside top of the door by the window, and others have it by the handle, which can change which way you go about it.
