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.

Yeah... and then the next time, the kit is locked inside the truck lol

That was very expensive lesson for me to learn. $160 to be exact. That's what I paid the locksmith to pick my lock in 5 seconds. That'll teach me for being to lazy to hang one by my DEF tank with a zip tie like Rainy told me to do 1000 times. Now I have keys everywhere.

Well... Rainy locked herself out of the 2017 International on a Sunday in PA....$250 and the guy drove up in a Mercedes SUV. Made me think about changing careers. So after hammering into your head, I still screwed up.

My first day on the road after my surgery and a lockout and I exploded the fore extinguisher while driving. My FM said, "Wow, You are rusty!" thanks dispatch. real help you are lol

My last student and I got trucks at the same time and I walked him into the parts shop.and we both got spares to tie so we didnt screw up lol

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

That and I left my wallet in the truck, I usually grab my keys and wallet before getting out when I'm in bed. But this time I had to rush to the restroom and we seen how that went. rofl-3.gif

I am thankful to the tow truck driver who so happened to be at the truck stop, as it would have been a few more hours before I got back into my truck. He was really surprised on how much I paid him after I got my wallet and went to the ATM, he asked if o was sure and thanked me. undefined

But the point is that it's cheaper than paying a locksmith to come, even if you throw the kit away when you're done. But I'd keep it in case someone else needed it some day.

I think Piano Man holds the record on TT for locking his keys in the truck. Probably close to a dozen times. At least those are the ones he admitted to. I also believe he bought SEVERAL of those lock out kits. He became quite proficient with the "slim jim". Last I heard he was delivering furniture in Colorado for a living, or.......stealing cars. I can't remember which!

We love you Paul. Please come and defend yourself!!!
