The Art of Opening A Locked-Out Trunk
Though people might not think of car trunks when they think of technological advancements, car manufacturers continue to improve their trunks and add new wrinkles to them every year. New security features are often added, which is why it is important to consult an experienced locksmith company that keeps up with automotive developments. No matter how new your vehicle is or what model it is, we can quickly restore access to your trunk.
It's important to know what a locksmith's procedure is when handling a trunk lockout. Some lack the training or expertise to bypass certain trunk security features and can only re-key the lock, which will necessarily be more expensive. Our experienced team will assess the situation and open the trunk without re-keying if it is possible. This can save you quite a bit of money.

What to Do When the Locksmith Arrives

In some odd cases, they may have to fashion a new key on site. Either way, they'll make sure the problem gets resolved.
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. This is done in circumstances where the locksmith simply cannot get the lock open with their tools for some reason, and there are no other known ways to open the trunk without causing damage to it.

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.

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.
