Frequently Asked Questions
Q. My keys are locked in the trunk. Should I call a locksmith?
A. If your keys are locked in the trunk, a locksmith would generally find another way to open up the car and release the trunk latch from the inside. The type of security that your car has would be the largest variable that a locksmith would be working with, but a professional can get past that and get into your car.
The trunk is only one of many locks in the car and most of the time another car lock can be activated, usually from the door. So the most efficient way to get to the trunk is usually through a manual method of opening the door. There are occasional exceptions to this rule, such as when a trunk lock is itself broken, but in general, the standard practice for a professional locksmith is to get to the door first. And our professional locksmiths can get the trunk open quickly and efficiently.
A. Even if you end up locking your keys in the trunk, there are other ways to open your car. While there is a variable in what type of security the car has, there are always ways for professionals to get the car open to access the trunk.
A. Well, there is another option, and that is to risk damage to your vehicle doing it yourself. By contrast, our professional locksmiths are trained and certified in these matters, so the risk of damage to your vehicle is minimal. The real advantage to calling a locksmith is having the certainty that the car trunk will be successfully opened quickly, efficiency, and without damage to your car. Unless you're sure you won't end up damaging a car door or trunk lock, we suggest leaving trunk lockout services in the hands of professionals.
Q: How can I get the keys out of a locked trunk myself?
A. It is possible for someone who knows what they're doing to get the keys out on their own, but it's usually not a very good idea, which is why we strongly suggest having the number of our professional locksmiths on hand in case of such an emergency rather than 'do it yourself' solutions. That said, to get the car keys out of the trunk, find a proper tool to open up the car door. (If you're not familiar with such tools, it may be time to call a professional.)
Once the car door is open, the trunk can usually be unlocked with an interior trunk lock mechanism. If that doesn't work, however, it may be time to call a locksmith. There's nothing wrong with a little do-it-yourself work, but if you risk damage to your car because you don't know what you are doing, you may end up making it more expensive because you didn't call a locksmith to begin with!

If You've Locked Your Keys in the Trunk, Here's What to Do
In the first place, the immediate reaction for most drivers is to panic. Don't do that. Panic will not help, and ultimately will delay resolving the problem. Instead, stay calm. That way you can assess the situation as clearly as possible. Once you've got yourself calmed down start to review the situation.
Do you carry a spare key? If so and you have it, now is a really good time to grab it. But if you don't have a spare key, the worst thing you can do is to try to mess with the trunk lock directly. Picking the lock has particularly poor results and can end up damaging the lock altogether. If you have an older model car, for example one where the locks are situated in the interior door handle area, it will take some elbow grease. You will need some kind of tool (or in lieu of a tool a wire coat hanger straightened out is common) to slip between the window and the door of the car. While you might be able to unlock the car trunk from there if the trunk lock key is there, if it is not, your best bet is to try to open the door itself to facilitate opening the trunk.
Depending on the age of your car, you may be able to slide a tool in between the car and the car door and get the door opened. If you can open the latch from here on in, great! If not, or you feel uncomfortable working with tools on the car, then it's probably better to call a trunk lockout expert at this point. There is also the possibility that with newer vehicles, you may have to look for a fuse box near the driver side door, as the trunk locks may be electric. If that's the case, it's a matter of removing a fuse to get the trunk open. If this sounds like a little too much, just call our certified experts.
