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. The most common process is that a locksmith would get a door open to get to the trunk latch and open it up from the inside. Depending on the car's security, this is a task of small to moderate difficulty for a professional locksmith, who can usually get the trunk open within an hour or so.
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. While it is possible to get your keys out yourself, you should always keep a professional in mind due to the fact that damage to the car can be caused by attempting to open the door incorrectly. So to get the car keys out of the trunk, find a tool that will work for you to get the car door open. If using car unlocking tools sounds like something you aren't sure about, do yourself a favor and call a professional instead.
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!

What To Do in Case of a Trunk Lockout: First Steps
The first thing to remember is not to panic. Because lockouts usually occur at just the wrong time, an emotional response is natural, but not particularly helpful. Calm down, and remember that help is just a phone call away. Getting upset or frustrated will not help the situation, and it certainly won't get your keys out of the trunk. So stay calm, and work through some steps.
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.
Third: Survey and react. How old is your car? Older model vehicles often have the locks on the interior door panel, so if you can get some kind of tool, such as a slim jim, to get to the locks, you can often get the door open and finally access the trunk mechanism. However, on newer model cars, the lock mechanisms are electrical, so another step is required. Once you have the door open, look for a fusebox panel near the driver side door. Removing and replacing the fuse should get the trunk to open. However, if the word 'fuse box' in regards to your car doesn't make you feel comfortable, it's time to call in the professionals.
