New York City LOCKED OUT OF THE TRUNK
Professionals You Need When You Are Locked Out of Your Trunk
It happens when we least expect it: the keys to the car get locked into your trunk. But here's the good news-- licensed, expert locksmiths are just a phone call away when you need them most, 24 hours a day.
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.
A. Even if you end up locking your keys in the trunk, there are other ways to open your car. While there is a variable in what type of security the car has, there are always ways for professionals to get the car open to access the trunk.
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. While it is possible to get your keys out yourself, you should always keep a professional in mind due to the fact that damage to the car can be caused by attempting to open the door incorrectly. So to get the car keys out of the trunk, find a tool that will work for you to get the car door open. If using car unlocking tools sounds like something you aren't sure about, do yourself a favor and call a professional instead.
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 there is an open door and you can open it from the inside, calling a professional locksmith is a smarter idea.

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.
