I got a call from them, they said they have been trying to find someone but they are either closed or I'm to far away..

I’m an hour away. I stopped at the state line because I was afraid I wouldn’t find parking in MA.

On my way to Lewiston, ME

Lol. I didn't mean that exact! Can you get a thin metal hanger? The kind they use at dry cleaners. You can bend it into a hook at one end & play with it to fit over the door lock & pull at an angle to lift it. It's a bit more detailed but if you have no other options.

Yes folks, that's the product of my misspent youth.

Btw, save a spot for GOM & you guys can go bowling across the street while the locksmith comes from Boston to bail you out. Lol

Well I have heard before sometimes keys from same manufacturer will unlock doors. Don't know if it's a good idea or not though?

Some truck stops sell kits to unlock doors, like a thin metal strip to shove down the window. Or maybe someone else there has something.

Locked my keys out once in MS, South of Jackson by an hour or so, locksmith got there and tried a bunch of diff things, air bags placed inside doors, hangers, etc..... 2 and a half hours later another locksmith employee s showed up to wonder what the problem was this employee looked older then dirt...he proceeded to say this will work, took the ignition key from hos 1950s pickup and proceeded to open the door.... 😁😁😁

Just so happens a tow truck driver was parked here out front, so I went up and asked for some help. He was willing to help me out, and I could pay him whatever. So I gave him a pretty nice tip and it was all "off the books". Just glad to be back in my truck!

Right as he got the door open, I got a call about them dispatching someone out... What odd timing.

Awesome news! Now go start hanging keys everywhere on that shiny new truck!
