How to Open a Locked Saturn Car Door

by Robert Good

Locking your keys inside your Saturn doesn't mean you have to call a locksmith. With a little patience and a metal coat hanger, you can unlock your car door.

1

Unwind the metal coat hanger so it's straight. Bend the end of the hanger so the tip resembles a hook.

2

Slide the hooked end of the hanger between the window and the door frame right in front of the side of the door handle that is closest to the side mirror. Push the hanger down 1 1/2 feet and make sure the hook is facing you.

3

Pull up and down on the coat hanger until the hook grabs the metal lock arm. The door lock handle will start to move once the hook has grabbed it. Pull up on the coat hanger until the door lock releases, then open the door.
