These surviving tech may save lives
Breaking into many types of electronic safes (you know, ones with keypads) is surprisingly easy. You just need to bounce them. This works because many cheaper safes have locks that lift. Better safes don’t have this vulnerability and this trick won’t work on them, but if you’ve got a cheap one and lost your passcode you can just do this bouncing trick to open it right up.
Your best bet for breaking free is breaking the window with a device called a center punch. They’re cheap and easy to acquire, so you might want to keep one in your vehicle in case of emergency.
Failing that, it is possible to kick a window out when you don’t have the necessary technology. Just aim for the hinges, rather than the middle, and you should find success with a little luck and sufficient force.
