If you accidentally locked your car keys inside the car and can’t get in, don’t hurry to any rash decisions. Take a roll of broad duct tape, cut a length of it, and stick it vertically to a window glass. Now repeat it 5 or 6 more times, sticking the lengths of tape next to each other. When done, unstick the bottom parts of all the lengths on the window and wring them together in a single ‘tail’ that you can hold and leave it to hang for the time being. Now cut another 5 or 6 lengths and stick them across the ones you’ve already stuck so that they hold fast. Once everything’s ready, hold the ‘tail’ you made previously, and 3, 2, 1, PULL DOWN! With a bit of an effort, the window will slide down a bit, and you’ll be able to stick your hands between the glass and the frame to push it down further until you can get inside and fetch those keys.
