24 Hour Trunk Lockout Rescue
Generally trunk lockouts happen when people are distracted and forget that their keys are in the trunk, but there are other ways that they can happen: a key can break in the trunk lock, or the trunk lock can be damaged in another way. No matter how it happens, though, it's a huge hassle, which is why the good news is that professional certified locksmiths are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to help resolve any truck lockout issue.
Q. My keys are locked in the trunk. Should I call a locksmith?
A. 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.
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 professional locksmith is to get to the door first. And our professional locksmiths can get the trunk open quickly and efficiently.
Q. I locked my keys in my trunk-- do I really need a locksmith to get them out?
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 do I get the locked keys out of a trunk myself?
A. 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. 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 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. 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.
Our trunk lockout solutions include:
Don't forget: having the number to a professional available for you when you need one most is the best way to stave off a potential emergency.

Make sure to have the number of our professional locksmiths on hand so when an emergency arises, you're ready for the situation. Resolving trunk lockouts are something that our trained professionals have built their reputation on.

If You've Locked Your Keys in the Trunk, Here's What to Do
The first thing to remember is not to panic. Because lockouts usually occur at just the wrong time, an emotional response is natural, but not particularly helpful. Calm down, and remember that help is just a phone call away. Getting upset or frustrated will not help the situation, and it certainly won't get your keys out of the trunk. So stay calm, and work through some steps.
Do you carry a spare key? If so and you have it, now is a really good time to grab it. But if you don't have a spare key, the worst thing you can do is to try to mess with the trunk lock directly. Picking the lock has particularly poor results and can end up damaging the lock altogether. If you have an older model car, for example one where the locks are situated in the interior door handle area, it will take some elbow grease. You will need some kind of tool (or in lieu of a tool a wire coat hanger straightened out is common) to slip between the window and the door of the car. While you might be able to unlock the car trunk from there if the trunk lock key is there, if it is not, your best bet is to try to open the door itself to facilitate opening the trunk.
On newer model cars, the lock mechanisms are electrical. You will need to find a panel with a fusebox located near the driver's door. Removing the fuse should make it easy to manually open the trunk (you'll need to replace the fuse afterwards.) However, playing with fuse boxes and risking damage to the door are good reasons to call a professional.
If your keys are locked in the trunk, remember that if the above doesn't work for you, call us 24 hours a day so we can help you in an emergency. Don't go it alone: our trained professionals are here for your trunk lockout scenarios when you need them the most.
