Never Get Locked Out of Your Car Again with 1 Simple Hack
One trip to RBM Lock & Key will give you protection against accidental auto lockouts.
Have you ever accidentally locked your keys inside your car? It’s annoying, right? It always seems to happen at the worst possible time too.
For example maybe it’s an 80 degree day and you just zipped into the store for 5 minutes, leaving the car running and the AC on for your dog. Then you come back to find that in his joy at your imminent reunion little Fido has tap-danced all over the door controls and locked himself in. Now you play the waiting game to see whether the auto locksmith or the crazed, car-window-smashing PETA fanatic will arrive on scene first.
UNLESS, you have thought ahead and completed this one simple, cheap hack that will give you the power to vanquish auto lockouts forever: get a passkey.
All it takes is one visit to RBM Lock & Key. Bring us your car key, and for just a few bucks we can make a basic copy that will unlock your car door, but not start the engine. This type of extra key won’t help you if you lose your car keys, but it will get you back in business if you lock your keys inside your car.
The beauty of having an extra door key made, rather than an extra ignition key complete with computer chip, is that there’s no way a thief can use it against you. You can safely store this extra door key in one of those magnetic cases that can be tucked up inside a wheel well without worrying that a thief could use it to steal your car. In many models, the car alarm will actually sound if you use a door key that does not have the computer chip in it. The only way to turn off the alarm is to use the ignition key, which a thief will not have.
Alternatively, you could keep your passkey in your purse or wallet. Unlike your ignition key, your computer-chip-free door key will be nice and flat so you’ll hardly notice it in your wallet. Although, you will have to be careful not to lock your purse or wallet in the car or you’ll be back to square one.
Of course, if you don’t like the idea of having yet another key to keep track of, RBM Lock & Key can still help you get back in your car. Just call us for fast auto lockout service, any time day or night and we’ll come open your car door lock for you.
