FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
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.
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.
I locked my keys in my trunk-- do I really need a locksmith to get them out?
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 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.
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.

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.
My keys are locked in the trunk.
That said, to get the car keys out of the trunk, find a proper tool to open up the car door.
Should I call a locksmith?
Getting a proper tool is the first step to get between the car and the door.
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.
After getting the door open, the next step is to unlock the trunk by using the latch inside the vehicle.
If the latch or the trunk lock is damaged, however, the next step is to call a professional. Attempting to fiddle with the trunk lock will almost invariably damage it, and will make the process of getting back in the trunk more expensive. So in general, unless you can open it from the inside, calling a mobile locksmith is a smarter idea.
