Winter Temperature & Its Effect On Car Locks



Keep Your Locks Effective During This Winter With Our Reliable Tarzana locksmiths


Winter weather is all about low temperatures and freezing cold where everything you touch tends to be frozen. Working in such an extreme temperature tends to get very difficult and to add to that, most of the things get jammed. One of the common problems that most people face is when car doors and the locks get jammed due to the freezing cold.

But this should not leave you worried this winter because we provide you easy tips to break the ice and fight the winter chill.



Easy Tips to Prevent Your Car from being Jammed this Winter

  • Frozen Door Locks – Nothing gets more frustrating when you are ready to leave and already running late to realize that your car door locks have frozen. In such situations, opening the door seems to be a tough job. Hence, it is better to prevent this from happening if you start acting way in advance. Place magnets overnight on the lock. There are more ways than just this, you could also apply a moisturizer gel on the door lock, turn the lock back and forth a couple of times for the gel to spread across the entire place. You just need to do this once a week throughout winter and your problem shall be sorted.


  • Frozen Power Windows – Power windows are all about scrolling the windows up and down with the help of a button. Now imagine trying to scroll down your window with the help of a button and it is not going down since it has got jammed in the chill. There is no point in pushing the button harder, instead we provide you another alternative. Take the help of a credit card or even a plastic comb between the window and strip, poking that place with the edge of the credit card will help considerably in breaking the ice and eventually pulling down your windows. In case you are not in any hurry, switch on the car heater and the ice will melt on its own.


  • Frozen Car Door – Freezing doors are quite a pain in the winter months specially when you are standing outside trying to fight it out with your car door when it remains stuck and frozen. In such situations try and apply spray cooking lubricant on your door frame. There is another nice way of trying to melt the ice and that is to use a hair dryer.


These are some of the simple ways you can prevent your car from freezing in the ice.
