How do I open a car door with a tennis ball?

"Can you unlock a car door with a tennis ball? I've heard you can open a car door this way if you lock your keys in your car. How do you do it?

How do you do it?"

“It’s true—a tennis ball can actually help you open your car door if you lock your keys in your car. Here’s how.
To start, heat a screwdriver or another sharp metal object over an open flame.
Then, carefully use the hot metal to poke a hole through the tennis ball.
Next, place the tennis ball against the car door with the hole in the ball facing the car lock’s keyhole.
Finally, press the tennis ball into the car lock as hard as you can. The air pressure created by the squeeze of the ball should force the locking mechanism to unlock.
However, if you don’t have a tennis ball on hand, your next best bet is to call roadside assistance or use the towing and labor coverage included with your car insurance policy.
