What's Up With Your Trunk Lock?
Opening a trunk used to be simple, and still is on some older models of cars. The locksmith could either pick the lock or, on some models, get in through the back seat by one means or another. Technology has increased to stem the rising tide of thefts from car trunks, however. That means enhanced security measures on some vehicle models, which is good for keeping out thieves but bad when you lock your keys in the trunk. Fortunately, a skilled locksmith still has a variety of options for retrieving your keys.
Some trunks are designed such that if you lock a key in them, it's virtually impossible to get them open without another key - even for a highly trained locksmith. In these cases, what we do is to re-key the lock for you. That means creating a new key for you right on the spot. This is possible using our fully kitted out mobile response vehicles.

When Trunk Locks Need to be Re-keyed
Rekeying of a lock can mean a replacement of the cylinder, but more often we can simply make a new key for your existing cylinder.

Consider a Backup Key
Did you know that less than 10% of all car owners keep a backup copy of their automotive keys? It's something that people generally don't think about until an emergency lockout situation strikes. A backup key is the quickest way to recover from locking your keys in the trunk. We can create a backup for you on the scene after we've restored access to your trunk. It doesn't take long and is only a modest added cost, but could prevent you from ever having another emergency lockout call with the vehicle. Some people give their backup keys to trusted family and friends to hold in case of an emergency, while others hide the key underneath the car somewhere using a small magnet.
