Make sure you’re in a safe location

Notice your surroundings:

Is it the middle of the night?

Are you in an unfamiliar or potentially unsafe location?

Is there hazardous weather?

Prioritize your own safety over getting into the car immediately. Seek out a place where you can safely determine your next steps. Only when you feel comfortable and calm should you begin planning how to get back in your vehicle.

Do NOT try to break into your car

It’s tempting to try and solve the problem all on your own, but trust us, you’re going to cause more harm than good if you try to break into your car. From smashing windows to prying them open, any of your solutions can have consequences for your car, and may even be dangerous to you. Leave it to a professional locksmith, it’s well worth the short wait to avoid unnecessary damage to your vehicle.
