FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q. My keys are locked in the trunk. Should I call a locksmith?
A. Absolutely! No job is too small for our professional locksmiths-- it's what they're there for! It's much smarter to refer to a locksmith than to try to do the job yourself. Trying to handle a trunk lockout without experience can run the risk of damage to your car door and locks if you don't know what you are doing. By contrast, calling a locksmith is a much more efficient way to handle the problem. Our locksmiths are experts at trunk lockouts, and might save you money over breaking the lock from trying to pick it yourself.
Q. How can a locksmith get the keys out of the trunk?
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.
The key to remember is that the trunk isn't the only lock to the car, so as long as a locksmith can get to the inside of the vehicle, the locksmith can get to the trunk lock and open it from the inside. In cases where the trunk lock itself is broken, however, a professional will have to resort to repairing or replacing the lock. In most cases, however, this is not actually necessary.
Q. What if I just want to get the keys out of a locked trunk myself?
A. 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. In such a case a locksmith becomes a necessity to reverse the damage caused. So in the first place, the best solution is the use of a qualified locksmith. With that said the main way to get the car keys out of the trunk is to start at the door. Getting a proper tool is the first step to get between the car and the door. Once a tool is inside that can be controlled from the outside, the next move is to either try to reach the trunk latch if possible or a door lock to unlock the car.
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.

What To Do in Case of a Trunk Lockout: First Steps
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. That way you can assess the situation as clearly as possible. Once you've got yourself calmed down start to review the situation.
First, the obvious question: are all the doors locked? If not, your problem is likely solvable within minutes. Just get the front door open, unlatch the trunk and you're done. 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.
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.
