Frozen locks? Squirt a little hand sanitizer on them. The isopropyl alcohol that kills germs also lowers the freezing point of water, and can melt the ice inside the lock within seconds.
By the way... if you don't have an extra bottle of hand sanitizer in your car or in your kitchen or on your desk at work, pick up a 2-Pack of Purifize
It has 70% alcohol to kill germs, viruses and bacteria, not only on your hands but surfaces as well. You get TWO 8 oz. bottles at killer price. Hand sanitizer 'kills' germs... get it?
