FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
My keys are in the trunk.
Should I call a locksmith?
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.
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 mobile locksmith is to get to the door first. And our mobile locksmiths can get the trunk open quickly and efficiently.
How can a locksmith get the keys out of the trunk?
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.
By contrast, our mobile 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.
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 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 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
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.
Second: think it through.
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.
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.
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.
Our mobile locksmiths are available to help with trunk lockout issues every day of the year, no matter what time of day or night it is.
