Dang that sucks. Hopefully youíve got into by now but itís hard to give advise just by typing. Iíve been able to enter tons of vehicles over the years but just takes ďfeelĒ. Where are you located? I have balloons and wedges that help tremendously

In Snellville (GA). My husband wasnít able to fanagle the wire hanger downward because of the bars. I just called a locksmith - fingers crossed it wonít be an arm and a leg!

Do yourself a solid & get a hide a key. They are lifesavers.

I looked into that, but havenít done it because purchasing a 2nd key is pretty expensive. However, after paying a locksmith I may see spending money in a second key a good investment! Ha!

The hide a key should be a non chipped key & only work on the locks. It should not start it, in case someone besides you find it.
If available, you can usually get them at your local home improvement store.
