When you slide the slim Jim in between the glass and the door skin line up your slim Jim so it points towards the door lock button. Gently lift up while watching the door lock button. If you see it wiggle you are on the right track. You may have to bend the slim Jim a little to get it to hook the correct rod. Be patient and you will get it. It take a little practice. I used to repo cars and was pretty good at it. Like I said just keep at it.

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 out of my car! Keys (main & spare) won't unlock the doors.


i had same problem with a mitsubishi fto , tried the coat hanger thing got the passengers door unlocked but it still wouldnt open, rang the automobile association, he came along and did the same as i did to passengers door , to the drivers door and presto he was in,so maybe the drivers door has the master control, or ring a dealer for that make and model they might be able to put you on the right path.

Locked out of my mustang. Have a slim jim. how does it work?


Lots of things inside your door that a slim Jim can destroy. But basically slide it between the window and the rubber seal at the bottom of the glass. The idea is to hook onto the door lock linkage and pull up or push down. I'd really recommend letting a professional do it with modern lockout tools. Very easy to break stuff with that tool.

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.
