FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
My keys are locked in the trunk.
How can a locksmith get them out?
Absolutely! No job is too small for our mobile 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.
I locked my keys in my trunk-- do I really need a locksmith to get them out?
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 mobile 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?
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 mobile 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 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 you can open it from the inside, calling a mobile locksmith is a smarter idea.

Checklist: What to Do If Your Keys are Locked in the Trunk
First on the list: Calm down.
Don't do that.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
To get the job done quickly, efficiently, and right the first time, just call us and we'll send over a certified professional to get you back on the road.
