Take an old auto antenna or, a very stiff metal rod and, using a plastic blade (like a plaster knife) bend the glass on the driver's side door; at the top of the door; gently outward; place a rubber or, wood spacer (eraser, wedge etc) between the door frame and, the glass: you only need one inch space; use the rod to press /pull the button / lever on the passenger side

Locked my keys in my 1998 mazda protege and i need to know how to use a slim jim


A 'Slim Jim' will rarely work on cars newer than 1980 or so. You need to gently pry the car door open and insert a devise that pumps air into a small balloon like container that is place between the door and the body of the car. This will open a gap where you can either unlock the car or try to retrieve the keys with a hook-like devise such as a wire hanger.

This device is common piece of equipment that tow trucks carry with them so I would suggest you let them do it because the price of the device is far greater than a "lock out" call to a towing company.

Locked keys inside car


You slip it in between the weather stripping and the window, with the angle of the Jim oriented toward the door lock. There are a series of rods that connect the inner and outer handles with the door lock, so you just have to push down, or maybe lift up and move it around until you find a rod. It will help you greatly if you can find online a picture of what the exploded view of your lock assembly looks like. Once you hook a rod or press on one, you'll just have to experiment until you pop it. Beware: Some newer cars have plates welded inside to prevent slim jims from working.

How do I slim jim into my 2006 chevy colorado with the keys locked inside?


it depends if your door has the antitheft plate,most cars have them now,its just a small metal plate inside the door to stop a slim Jim,if you door has a lock pin you can hook with banding that's the way to get in,but you will need a wedge to open the top of the door just a few mm then take the banding fold it in half and push it in the gap then slide one half forward to open the banding hook the lock pin then close the banding and pop the lock ok.

Keys are locked in car and dont want to pay for aaa. I have slim jim how do I unlock door with it?


A lot of newer cars can't be opened with a slim jim anymore. A good kit uses a small bag that inflates with air to allow a long rod to unlock (electric door locks) These work much better.

Sometimes the Police will use a "Slim-Jim" and help a Citizen. Or call a Locksmith especially if you have Road Service or Autoclub.

A typical slim jim wont do the trick for you.

You need special tools to do the trick. Most tow truck drivers have them.
