Imagine this scenario: you are tired after a whole week at work. It is on a Friday afternoon, and you are through with all your work. Instead of driving home, you decide to take a long road trip in order to relieve all the fatigue and stress you have developed in that busy week. You drive for miles, until you are now tired of driving and you decide to turn back and head home. You, however, need to answer to a call of nature. You spot a washroom by the roadside and rush. When you come back to your car, you find out that you locked your keys inside the car, and you are now locked out. What do you do? Do you take a rock and crush the window? Do you scream for help? Who do you call?

At such a time, you are aware that that your security and that of your car is compromised, hence you are naturally confused. Luckily, there are thousands of auto locksmiths in America. Finding the best is, however, not a walk in the park. You will have to do some homework in order to get one that you can depend on in times of trouble.

A good auto locksmith will never wait for an extra minute once you call for a service. They believe that your car is important to you, solving all its lock problems is something that should be treated as an emergency. The locksmith should always have the fleet ready, and well equipped, such that when you call, there will be no delays as they strategize on the action to take.

Simple Hacks to Combat Winter Weather

How to get into your car when the lock is frozenImage result for frozen car lock

Ideally, you have an aerosol de-icer on you. It’s cheap and portable. But let’s get real. You can barely keep track of your wallet, let alone a can of de-icer. So take some advice from George Davi, a locksmith at Locksmith Brothers: Squirt hand sanitizer into the lock to help melt the ice and then jiggle the key. Also, depending on how icy the lock is, you might try heating up your car key with a lighter to loosen things up. Now, just hope your car starts.

How to stop spinning your wheels on ice

Kitty litter would not be Frank Chambless’s first choice to provide traction for tires: “You don’t want to get to that point unless there’s nothing you can do.” But the mechanic at Fran’s Auto Repair in South Boston said if you find yourself in a slick spot, litter can do the trick. When temperatures plunge, keep a bag of (clean) litter in the back of your car to spread under a tire to improve grip.

Doesn’t look pretty, but it gets the job done.

How to keep your feet dry; how to get your boots dry

As any hiker worth her salt knows, cotton kills. It gets wet, stays wet, and does nothing to wick away moisture. So wear a pair of wool socks, maybe even two, under your boots to keep your toes dry in the bitter cold and snow. For additional protection, slip a plastic grocery bag — or even a plastic slider bag — over your stocking foot before slipping on your boot. So says Chuck Blanchette, director of camping with the Boy Scouts Spirit of Adventure Council, which oversees troops in Boston and the northeastern Massachusetts region. “It provides an extra layer and holds in the heat,” he said. Then, once you’re home and need to get your boots dry quickly, cut up a foam pool noodle, stuff a section into each boot shaft, and put the boots near (but not too close) to the heater. The noodles keep the boots upright and allow air to circulate.
