Frequently Asked Questions
Q. My keys are in the trunk. How can a locksmith get them out?
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.
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 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.
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.
