Car Trunk Locks
So why is the trunk lock such a problem? With older model vehicles, it really isn't. Locksmiths usually have no trouble opening up older trunks for you. But as cars have become more sophisticated and as thieves have become more keen on stealing from trunks or using them as an entry point, car manufacturers have upped the security measures used in the trunk along with the rest of the car. This requires locksmiths to keep up with all the new stuff being implemented in each new model of car.
Locksmiths have to be familiar with the security features on each make and model of vehicle, the details of which are often not made public to deter car thieves. That's why calling a trained and experienced locksmith for your locked trunk is so important. A good locksmith will describe their range of capability on their website so that you can get an idea of whether or not they'll be able to open your trunk, or have to go straight to a re-key.
If you lock your keys in the trunk, don't panic. Just keep calm and follow the following steps.
