The most common way for people to lock their keys in their trunk is placing them there by mistake and closing the trunk, but other trunk lockout issues involve broken keys as well as damage to the lock on the trunk.
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.
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.
By contrast, calling a locksmith is a much more efficient way to handle the problem.
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.
Depending on the car's security, this is a task of small to moderate difficulty for a mobile locksmith, who can usually get the trunk open within an hour or so.
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.
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.

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 in the trunk.
In such a case a locksmith becomes a necessity to reverse the damage caused. So in the first place, the best solution is the use of a qualified locksmith. With that said the main way to get the car keys out of the trunk is to start at the door.
How can a locksmith get them out?
(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.
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.
