The first time I saw this, I couldn’t believe my eyes. It sounds too good to be true, but the car-opening tool you’re most likely to have on you at any given time is a shoestring.

Wooden Wedge
All you need is a door stop/wooden wedge and a long metal rod. To break in, you insert the wedge into the top part of the driver’s side door until it makes a small opening. Then you can stick the long metal rod into that opening and use it to push the unlock button on the car. This works much better with electronic locks but can be done with regular locks as well. If you have a normal lock, you may also be able to use a crimped plastic strap to lift it into the unlocked position. Which method will work best will depend on what type of locks you have, so before you go out and get your materials be sure you’re getting the right stuff. Source: LifeHacker
