If its a truck, see if it has a window in the back of the cab. N then we just got them out with a stick we found

Some more ideas on YouTube. There's an interesting one with a tennis ball.

The tennis ball one was a hoax.

I would intentionally lock my keys in the car in my younger years

I used a coin (the US Dime worked best) to remove the license plate which I would use as a slim-jim device to unlock the doors.

Why you may ask? I would do this when out at the bar under the impression that if I was sober enough to succeed, I was sober enough to drive
dude I removed the keys from ma locked car all windows rolled up jus with the wiper....n ya u can also jus use a scale(ruler) to open it jus slide it near da lock of da window for god sake who is gonna remember to keep da window open a lil bit rather Id not forget ma keys.

Thanks for the tip Great idea. Keeping a brick in the bed of the truck will also work. In case of emergency, throw it through your window. Wala :P

If all the windows are rolled up. You can use a wooden wedge to pry open the top of the door a bit and a wire coat hanger or other device to unlock the vehicle. Saw the local Fire Dept. do this years ago.
