The Art of Opening A Locked-Out Trunk
Opening a trunk used to be simple, and still is on some older models of cars. The locksmith could either pick the lock or, on some models, get in through the back seat by one means or another. Technology has increased to stem the rising tide of thefts from car trunks, however. That means enhanced security measures on some vehicle models, which is good for keeping out thieves but bad when you lock your keys in the trunk. Fortunately, a skilled locksmith still has a variety of options for retrieving your keys.
Locksmiths have to be familiar with the security features on each make and model of vehicle, the details of which are often not made public to deter car thieves. That's why calling a trained and experienced locksmith for your locked trunk is so important. A good locksmith will describe their range of capability on their website so that you can get an idea of whether or not they'll be able to open your trunk, or have to go straight to a re-key.
