any way to unlock doors without a key?

ok,I pulled the bonehead move of the weak for me,and it's only mionday!! I locked my keys in my truck and I don't have a spare.Truck is a 95 f150 extended cab. Is there any way to unlock it without calling a locksmith? I don't have any of the tools of the trade,slim jim,etc. Lock smith is $60,cheaper than breaking a window I am thinking. thanks,and while you are laughing at me,give me some advice!!

This won't help you now, but I have the original plastic key cut-out in my wallet for my 92.

Sorry I can't help more.

if ya got the vent window-get some stiff wire and make a hook to flip the handle on it -you also need a flat piece to pull in on the little lock-if you don't you need a slim jim

standing at drivers door, pry top right corner of door frame w/ large flatead screwdriver.
(gently) straighten a coat hanger, slide thru door gasket and push door lock button.
Does it have a sliding rear window? also good entry point if no power locks.
be patient and good luck

well,I needed the truck and didn't have time to mess with it so I just called the locksmith. 2 minutes later I was in. Anybody ever had a problem with the power locks locking themselves? I did not go anywhere near the lock button when I put the keys in the truck. Just wondering if the lock button might be getting "soft" and activating when I shut the door or something?

Bend up and shove a metal coat hanger through the edge of the door gasket, between the gasket and the body. Wiggle around and pull the button up.

Prying open the door is a good option, but beware. I did it one too many times on my nissan hardbody ( I know, not a good example, but its a tough little guy!) and it perminantly bent the door and now I have a really terrible air leak...

Here is what I do: I have a door key electrical taped to a wire harness under the truck (your choice) after road grime gets on it, you can't even tell it is there...
I got tired of the magnet box style, falling off or just screaming "steal me" to someone looking underneath my truck.
The electrical tape does not fall off, and hides a key well...IMHO

For anyone with this problem A BBQ burger flipper will work if its flat. Bust off the wood handles and stick it between glass and weather strip just about where the key is and push down on the linkage inside. Its only down as far as lock or about and between the key hole and back side of door. might take you a min. to find it. And you can also use stiff wire and go in the door gap and pull the clip out of the door that holds the lock cylinder in the door. And then turn the lock cylinder itself.(not EZ but better then pry`n your door with anything) It can be done. Make a key out of old credit card like guy with 92 has and myself that came with truck. Or a rock always works. Oh yeah you say elect. door locks Do they lock with KOER on 95? I know some cars and trucks don`t you have to be in seat. The cops will help If there cops for wanting to help people and not because they want CONTROL of people! If you look like a meth tweak hide or your going to Jail LOL
