Frequently Asked Questions
My keys are locked in the trunk.
Should I call a locksmith?
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.
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.
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 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 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.
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.
(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.
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.

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.
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.
If you don't, then please don't make the mistake of trying to work with the trunk lock.
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.
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.
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.
Removing and replacing the fuse should get the trunk to open.
If this sounds like a little too much, just call our certified experts.
