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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
However, if there is damage to the trunk lock, you are going to have to call a locksmith, because attempting to jimmy a trunk lock can lead to further damaging the trunk lock.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
