Have you ever locked yourself out of the house? Tell me a more hopeless feeling if you can. There you stand on your porch, feeling like the biggest chump in the world. The next thing you know, you're breaking and entering your own house. Suppose the police come along just as you're crawling through the window you just broke. Yeah. You've got some explaining to do. Well, what if you had an extra key in your wallet?

that's what this video is all about and it comes to us courtesy of people who break in and out of things for a living. I'm talking crooks here. these keys are made of plastic from empty bottles and the common term for them is, "prison keys." they're easy to make and, if you do it right, you've always got a spare key right there in your wallet.

All you need is an empty plastic bottle, some tape, a pair of sharp scissors and a lighter or some matches. It may take a bit of practice when it comes to cutting out the shape of your key, but just about anyone can make one of these spare keys in a matter of minutes. Also something to keep in min as you watch this video. this is how easy it is for someone to copy your keys.
