Q. How can the car still be opened if the keys are locked in the trunk?

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.

Usually despite the fact that the keys are locked in the trunk, the interior locks of the car will still be operational, so in most cases it's more a matter of opening the door and getting to the trunk than aiming for the trunk directly. While there are a few exceptions in extreme cases, the process is straightforward. But no matter what the situation, you can trust us specialists to do it quickly, correctly, and at the best price possible.

Q. How do I get the locked keys out of a 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.)

After getting the door open, the next step is to unlock the trunk by using the latch inside the vehicle. If the latch or the trunk lock is damaged, however, the next step is to call a professional. Attempting to fiddle with the trunk lock will almost invariably damage it, and will make the process of getting back in the trunk more expensive. So in general, unless there is an open door and you can open it from the inside, calling a professional locksmith is a smarter idea.

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.

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.
