Unlock your car with a tennis ball

    Well, preferably it's your car anyway. If you want to use this method to embark on a life of crime, I can't be held responsible for your actions.

    Not to be a blonde here, but would this actually work? I'm sure it's just something stupid, but anyway. Not that I'm carrying a tennis ball around in my purse (oh yeah, I don't carry one!)

    Notice that the girl's hair covers the lock when it pops.

    This has to be bullshit.

    I want to know why the video says you have to burn a hole in the tennis ball. Couldn't you just use a screwdriver or a knife to poke a hole?

    Well, according to the video, pushing in on the tennis ball forces the air out of the ball and into the lock mechanism, thus popping the lock.

    Might make for a fun physics experiment, but that's it.

    I've seen this done before, never done it myself, but I think the lock has to be the type that pops up and down as are found on older vehicles. If the lock is next to the inside handle as most are nowadays, I doubt you'd have success.
