If you are getting ready to leave for work and go to grab your keys, you expect them to be in your pocket, bag, hanging from the hook, or wherever they are supposed to be. However, that doesn't always happen. Sometimes it turns out that you locked your keys in your car, and you aren't able to get to work because there are your keys, hanging from the ignition, laying on the seat, or on the floor. If you can't get ahold of anyone who has a spare key to let you into your car, you are going to have to call someone who can help get into your car. There are several ways that a locksmith can help you get into your car. 

Bump Keys

One thing that the lockout service you call can do to get you in your car is to use something called a bump key. These keys are designed with a series of bumps on them and as the locksmith puts it into the door lock, the bumps will jiggle the tumblers and pins in the lock. As they jiggle the lock's innards, the key moves them around, and then the locksmith can unlock your door. 

Key Cutting

Another way that the lockout service can help you is that they can cut your key right there for you. Each carmaker has a certain kind of key that fits their cars and to each model. The locksmith may ask you what year, make, and model your car is before they come to your house. They are going to do this so that they can bring keys that will fit your car's year, make, and model. Once they get to your house, they can look at the various templates that will fit that particular car model, and find the one that will fit your car. The locksmith will then be able to cut a key that will fit your car. That way you will be able to get into your car, get to work, and get to have a spare key. 

If you are trying to get into your car so that you can get to work and realize that you have locked your keys in your car, you need to have a car lockout service come to your house and get you back into your car. They should be able to get to you pretty quickly and then get you back on the road.
