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.
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.
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 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?
Well, there is another option, and that is to risk damage to your vehicle doing it yourself.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
