Say that you are in a hurry and accidentally you forget your Keys inside the Car.The Clock is ticking and you must to pick up your wife.And she is phoning you constantly, and you don't want to say to her :"Ooops I did it again !!"
A locksmith?? Yeahh, right !! It´s just that the nearest locksmith is a lot of miles away from you are.
It's time to use the Jury rig it path !! Luckily I never let my multitool in home.

Step 2: What you have in hand ?

You just need a thin wire that enter between the door and the glass window.If you look closely to your windshield blades you must to see, a pair of thin metallic blades that hold the wiper.Just get it out and with the multitool curve the tip making a hook. I never left home without my multitool pouch.Its an old cheap multitool that a friend of mine give me and I customized it with some sugru. I hope that sooner or later could replace it wit the awesome Instructables/Victorinox Multitool.
With the help of the pliers I just made a little hook that could hook up the opening mechanism.In the other point or tip of the metallic blade, i curved a littlle so I could pull up the mechanism.


In just a few seconds the lock is opened !!Once again the creativity save me.Now I look in my pocket and enjoy a pair of gumballs tasting the flavor of success.

I've also unscrewed the vehicle's whip antenna and snuck it thru the door seals to push the unlock button. Works on Ford Windstar; may be worth a try on other vehicles.

Great Idea! Just don't forget to replace that wiper blade.
