Whether you’re in a hurry and need to get to work or you just enjoy the taste of beef jerky, the slim jim is a convenient snack option. The convenience of these small sticks of processed meat has made them a staple at many stores. You’ve probably seen this tool in movies and wondered how those characters managed to unlock cars so easily. Well, the truth is that anyone can learn how to use a slim jim on power locks. You just need to know a few simple tricks and practice to master the technique.

One of the most important things to remember when using a slim jim is that it can go bad if it’s exposed to light, water, or air. If you notice that the stick of meat has a foul or offensive smell, is not soft and pliable, or has an off color, it’s time to throw it away.

The good news is that if you place the stick of meat in the freezer, it will last for months or even years. This can be helpful if you buy them in bulk at places like Sam’s or Costco and don’t have the time to consume them before they expire.

Despite the fact that slim jims are made of real meat, they are also very high in sodium and preservatives. As a result, they should only be consumed in moderation. It is important to consult with a health professional or dietitian to understand how these snacks fit into your personal dietary needs and goals.
