We use what is called a "long reach tool" which goes in between the door and the body to reach in and either press/pull the lock button, or we can pull the door handle, or lasso the vertical lock. This is the most common method used by professional locksmiths.
Our tool does not damage the weatherstripping or the door itself.
Our locksmiths are professional and well trained in opening vehicles and we only use professional car opening tools.
We do not charge anything additional for opening cars, so the cost is just the service call to come out to you which is usually $50. Please see Cities we service for more information.
