Um, are we talking trade secrets or simple ways... wrecker driver will have a wedge and a long rod that he wedges into the top back corner of the door frame to create an opening and taking the rod, usually about 6' long 3/16" thinck and slightly curved will reach in and hit the power lock button...
Well, that is how I do it... alot cheaper than the lockout kit I have, and gets used 95% of the time!
It stays away from the wiring inside, so really no damage if your careful, and if your worried about the paint, use some tape around the area before you start on it...

If you have a manual sliding window try sticking a wedge on the locker side and try to seperate the pieces of glass and start sliding.

I called up Chris (MotownFire), He hooked me up with the air wedge from the fire station down the street. I had it open in about 2 minutes with the kit. Thanks for the suggestions guys.

a rock to the window works well too. So does your boot to the window. But if you don't want damage or broken windows then your method is best.

I found it strange that, when on a trip thru the western states last year. Most if not all of the truck stops that I would stop at, sold lock out kits for around $20. Kinda scarry.
