Frequently Asked Questions
My keys are in the trunk.
How can a locksmith get them out?
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.
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.
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.
I locked my keys in my trunk-- do I really need a locksmith to get them out?
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 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: How can I 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.
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 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.
However, neither feeling will get your keys out of your trunk, so just remember that you have our number handy.
Instead, stay calm.
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.
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.
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.
If this sounds like a little too much, just call our certified experts.
