Car Tip Of The Week: How To De-Ice Your Locks

Remember the good old days when you had to carry around a de-icer in case your car door lock froze?  Well, thanks to the invention of hand sanitizer with alcohol there is virtually no need for de-icer.  Most of us use our key fob to lock and unlock our cars, but many older, custom and classic vehicles don’t have key fobs and must be unlocked (the old fashioned way) with a key.  For those who unlock their trucks or cars with a key, this one tip could save you a lot of hassle in the winter time.  If you find your lock is frozen, then simply add a squirt of hand sanitizer on your key, insert in the door and turn back and forth…amazingly your lock will unfreeze and you can get in your vehicle and be on your way.
