know anyone with a slimjim? i locked mine in my jeep last fall at a power plant in the middle of nowhere. security called the sherrif and he slimjimmed it in about 2 mins.!went to local ace hardware and had a spare key made. wouldn,t start it, but it will open the doors, so i hid it in the engine compartment for the next time i lock my keys in!!!:o
I did that with my hardtop on and full doors. Took a good metal coat hanger and unlocked it. You can pull back the rubber seal at the bottom of the window and slide the coat hanger in to unlock it. It's very easy!!
Once you get in, make three copies of your key. Then as I did because I locked my keys in once too often, I carry one spare in my wallet, one hidden inside the engine compartment, and one last-resort key well protected and hidden underneath. I'm paranoid of dropping a key down into the rocks where I wheel where it very well could be lost forever... or something similar.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys! I have full doors and the hardtop on. Everything was locked up tight, usually h ave it that way at work so these punk kids don't take stuff out. Being at work, I didn't have access to any tools or anything, so I could try to remove the doors. Finally I just called a locksmith.
He even had a hard time, he pulled the top corner of the door open enough to get a metal rod in, but he couldn't get enough leverage on the lock switch to actually push it. The rod just kept slipping off. Luckily the keys were half sticking in the ignition so he managed to hook them and pull them out through the small opening he pried open in the door.
Glad I don't have a bunch of junk on my keychain. No damage to the car and it didn't seem to harm the doors any. I've got a spare I'm going to hide in the engine compartment or underneath, then maybe I'll hae some extras made.
You called a locksmith and he got your keys out by hooking your keychain and pulling them out?? You need to find you a different locksmith. We have one here that when you call them they come up with a tool kit and unlock the door, which is what a locksmith is supposed to do, in no more that 10 - 15 seconds. Next time try someone different!!
