Cars are designed with multiple locks to prevent their theft. The first line of defence against theft is the outer doors of the car. The ignition lock is more difficult to overcome than the car's outer doors, because of limited access to the locking mechanism. There are a number of tool kits available to help access your car in case you lose your key or lock the key in the car. The larger tool kits provide tools for gaining entry to the car, as well as tools to help start the ignition, but there are also tools available for just starting the ignition. The tools used to gain access to the car are not particularly conspicuous, so it is good to have proof of ownership when using them, as police are trained to approach anyone trying to gain access to a car without the key.

General Motors Rocker Lock Pick Set

As every car maker has its own method of providing car security, some lockout tool kits are specially made for a particular brand of vehicle. The General Motors Rocker Lock Pick Set may help gain entry into other types of vehicles, but starts the ignition only on GM vehicles. GM has a specially designed Passkey system and various types of keys, so the pick set includes the tools necessary for each type of key system. It is important to know that the lock pick set will not work on the VAT system, which uses GM keys with a built-in microchip. In these cases, it is best to contact a GM dealership or authorised repair specialist, as more complex and expensive equipment is required to bypass the security systems.

Automotive Lock Pick Set

The Automotive Lock Pick Set works for a wider variety of vehicles, with tools specifically designed for most foreign and domestic vehicles. Designed for those who have lost a key, locked a key in their cars or broken a key off in the ignition, the lock pick set includes tools to help gain entry into the car and boot, and has tools that extract a broken key part from the ignition.

Ford "Sure-Shot" Ignition Bypass Key

The "Sure-Shot" Ignition Bypass Key starts Ford 10-cut key vehicles. 10-cut refers to the number of markers in the key that enables it to start. The bypass key will only work in Fords that were manufactured from halfway through 1984 through 1996. It works on both cars and trucks from that period. The bypass key will not damage the vehicle, and is not designed to grant entry to the vehicle.
