FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
My keys are locked in the trunk.
Should I call a locksmith?
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.
Our locksmiths are experts at trunk lockouts, and might save you money over breaking the lock from trying to pick it yourself.
How can a locksmith get the keys out of the trunk?
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.
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. What if I just want to get the keys out of a locked trunk myself?
It depends on precisely how well someone knows their own car, but locksmiths are often called because of failed attempts to get the trunk opened themselves and resorted to extreme methods which risk damaging the car.
That said, to get the car keys out of the trunk, find a proper tool to open up the car door.
Getting a proper tool is the first step to get between the car and the door.
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.
After getting the door open, the next step is to unlock the trunk by using the latch inside the vehicle.
And a damaged trunk lock because you didn't know what you were doing can turn out to be more expensive.

What To Do in Case of a Trunk Lockout: First Steps
First on the list: Calm down.
Lockouts often occur when you least expect them, which leads to nervousness and even anger.
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.
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.
First, the obvious question: are all the doors locked? If not, your problem is likely solvable within minutes.
Trunk locks are complex, and trying to pick them is a huge mistake.
Next, if all the doors are locked, take a moment-- do you have a spare key on you or nearby? This is usually the next easiest solution.
In the case that both are not possible, then this is where a locksmith might come in handy.
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.
If that's the case, it's a matter of removing a fuse to get the trunk 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. If you lose your keys in a trunk lockout, don't despair.
Just remember, if you get locked out of your car with the keys in the trunk, you can call us 24 hours a day to help get your car problem resolved.
We will be more than happy to help you get back on the road!
