That sounds a little too expensive for me. I know there is a way to get into them without breaking any windows just not sure how.

You can get in under the door handle. Just search in not going to post it because it has been covered hundreds of times and I'm on my phone.

If you have someone small enough you can push the back window open if you have one, and if you dont have a toolbox on it. Its pretty hard to get it open, but with enough force you can. Thats how I used to get in my truck when I locked them in. Haha Good luck

^^^
If you aren't in yet, use a screwdriver pointed towards the locking mechanism.
Try to pry up the arm attached to the button.

Magnetic key case.

They hold very well.

I beat on the bumper of an old VW that I bought, and one fell out that had been there for YEARS.

As already mentioned, the rear sliding glass isn't that hard to open. I use a butter knife and its pretty easy. Be careful crawling through though, last time I did it and my belt caught the edge and broke the glass lol.
