As you leave the store that you stopped at to pick up a few things after a long day at work, you get to you car only to realize you have locked your car keys inside.

While you wait for us to show up, take a moment to think about what life was like before the car key was invented. You may think that w
ithout car keys there were probably no cars and everyone continued to get around using horse and buggy. But this is not the case.
When cars first came into existence, the car key was not even thought about. You didn’t need keys to unlock you car, because you couldn’t even lock your car. Most cars were topless and honestly, quite easy to steal.
If there were no car keys, how did someone start the car? There was a starter lever, a long bar that has a head and socket system that fit to your engine. They would have to crank this a few times to get the car started. The process required strength and patience and had to be done physically, every single time.
This means running to the store quickly wouldn’t be easy, a drive could not just get in and go. And as engines progressed, this cranking task got more difficult and physically demanding. This also made it easier for someone to simply take your car. According to expressautokeys.co.uk, Henry Ford used to chain his car to a lamppost with a padlock every time he parked so that it could not get stolen. The same as you would do with a bike!
So as you sit here, waiting for 24/7 Emergency Locksmith to come and help you get back into your car, just be thankful that you can simple start your car with the turn of a key and that you don’t have to chain it to a lamppost to ensure no one steals it.
