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.
Q. I locked my keys in my trunk-- do I really need a locksmith to get them out?
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 you manage to get the car door open, the trunk can then be unlocked by using the lock or latch button for the trunk from inside the car. However, if there is damage to the trunk lock, you are going to have to call a locksmith, because attempting to jimmy a trunk lock can lead to further damaging the trunk lock. And a damaged trunk lock because you didn't know what you were doing can turn out to be more expensive.

Checklist: What to Do If Your Keys are Locked in the Trunk
First on the list: Calm down. Lockouts often occur when you least expect them, which leads to nervousness and even anger. However, neither feeling will get your keys out of your trunk, so just remember that you have our number handy. The most important thing to do is to stay calm and you'll be able to get your bearings to take the next step in resolving the issue.
Second: think it through. Do you have a spare key? In the moment, you may forget if you do, so if you have a spare key this is the best time to use it. If you don't, then please don't make the mistake of trying to work with the trunk lock. Trunk locks are complex, and trying to pick them is a huge mistake. Are any of the car doors open, perhaps by mistake? If not, then it's time to move on to the next step.
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.
