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 in the trunk. How can a locksmith get them out?
A. If you don't want to risk damaging your car, the answer is a resounding yes: Our locksmiths are the best in the industry, and no matter what type of locked trunk, they can get it open. So when you call, you can set your mind at ease: you'll be back in your car quickly and painlessly. No matter what type of lock or where you left your keys, you will be back on the road in no time. Skip the hours of pain and hassle of trying to do it yourself: a 'locked keys in trunk' situation is what we do best.
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.
A. 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. Depending on the car's security, this is a task of small to moderate difficulty for a professional locksmith, who can usually get the trunk open within an hour or so.
A. 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: How can I get the keys out of a locked 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.

What To Do in Case of a Trunk Lockout: First Steps
First on the list: Calm down. Lockouts often occur when you least expect them, which leads to nervousness and even anger. However, neither feeling will get your keys out of your trunk, so just remember that you have our number handy. 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.
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.
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. However, if the word 'fuse box' in regards to your car doesn't make you feel comfortable, it's time to call in the professionals.
