One of those days
We pride ourselves on our ability to pick open door looks and I feel as a professional Auto Locksmith this is a must. But occasionally I am called to lockouts where all is not what it seems. I was called to a BMW 5 series where the customer actually had a key but was unable to gain entry. On closer inspection the lock was damaged and did not actually open the door. The customer was desperate to get into the vehicle and what we did next still makes me cringe.
WE used an Air wedge to open up a wide enough gap between the door and the frame, and then attached the key onto a wire and proceeded to feed the key through the gap. Getting the key through the gap was difficult but now I had to get it into the ignition and turn the ignition on. We eventually got the key into the ignition and using a second wire I turned the key to the auxiliary position, we then pressed the electric windows button to open the window and gain entry. This job took approximately 90 mins and in the end my arms and wrists were aching.
ʺThe moral of my story is that I do not like using wedges and long wire and probing through gaps, but occasionally needs must and without those tools I could have never completed the Jobʺ
