Frozen Car Locks: A Few Tips
Here are a few tips for frozen car locks:
Many people think that hot water will solve the problem, but this “solution” usually exacerbates the issue; the hot water just freezes
It takes a bit of forethought, but carry a de-icing lubricant with you in the winter.
The old “plug in a hair dryer and thaw the ice” trick always works if you’re near an electrical outlet
A lighter or match will also melt the ice; when you are able to insert your key, be careful not to use too much force - you don’t want to break the lock
