Have always managed to break into my cars most times in the past when keys have been locked in the car. ”
Made me smile, couple of years ago I was driving round in a Ford Ranger pickup with a hardtop. We were on holiday in Devon and after parking in the pub carpark ready to go on a family walk before the pub opened, I closed the rear door with the keys in the pickup, with a knowing sense of doom as the door shut,
The wife is looking at me saying now what do we do. No problem I said, it's a Ford and a third party hardtop, so will be 1980's technology After borrowing a screwdriver from the pub landlord, it took about 20 seconds to force the lock, which didn't break and you could still lock it with the key.
The kids now think I'm a master car criminal and break into any vehicle in seconds. I obviously won't put them right and am still enjoying my (undeserved) reputation of coolness.
But for a decent car and a slightly challenging lock, I would call out the locksmith (while the kids weren't watching).
