Keys Locked in TJ

I just locked my keys in my TJ. I'm so used to keyless entry and locking the car as I'm walking away....I knew this had to happen sooner or later in my life.

Anyways, anyone know of any way into these things? I got a hard top on to top it all off.

cant you remove the screws on one of the doors and pull it out so you can get your hand inside and unlock it?

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!!

If u have a soft top, just unzip the back window and crawl in there. I did that once.

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!!

I do a lot of lockwork and it is not wise to pick a vehicle door lock. They are easily damaged. Lock bypassing does not always mean lock manipulation.
