    The AutoBuster lockout tool may damage your vehicle’s door and window. To prevent this from happening, it is a good idea to remove the rubber strips which stop water from leaking into the vehicle. This can be accomplished by peeling away them away carefully. Even though it is considered unnecessary by some people, removing the rubber strips is a good idea as it makes room for the lockout tool.

    Slowly insert the unlocking end of the AutoBuster tool between the vehicle’s locked door and window. Handle of the tool should be facing towards the sky when you insert it. Push the lockout tool to a point beyond the manual lock button towards the engine of the vehicle. This will prevent the tool from getting trapped in the linkages in the door. Remember to take your time and be patient to place the tool in just the right place.

    When the door is locked, windows of some vehicles are held extremely tight to the door. If that is the case with your vehicle, you will need to insert a locksmith wedge. The wedge will slightly push the window glass backwards, thus creating enough gap for inserting the AutoBuster tool into the vehicle’s locked door.
