Getting keys out of a locked trunk is complicated work, especially if you lack the training and tools necessary for the job.

There are some online tutorials that claim to be able to show you how to break into your car’s trunk without any keys, although from our experience, the amount of damage done by individuals who attempt to break into vehicles without proper tools and the experience needed is so much greater and more costly than it would have been had they just called upon a competent locksmith from the get-go.

There are several ways a locksmith might consider going about unlocking your trunk.

It is clear that it’s important to get the proper help that you need in order to assist you with unlocking your car’s trunk. Each of our auto locksmiths comes fully equipped with all the tools that he needs in order to unlock your trunk.

  • Method #1:

The most common and efficient way to unlock a trunk is to pick a door lock inside the car. This is not a simple task to do; it takes skill and precise hand movements to be able to insert the tools into the lock in the exact way that’ll unlock the car door. 

Once the locksmith has gotten the door of the car unlocked, opening the car’s trunk is usually pretty simple to do. All one has to do is pull a lever or push a small button inside the car’s interior, and the trunk will pop open.

  • Method #2:

If your car does not have a button or lever which allows you to unlock the trunk from within the car, you can still get access your trunk in a different way. The locksmith who is assisting you can usually remove the back seat of the car and crawl his way through to the trunk.

  • Method #3:

If the car has a trunk release button inside it that only works when the key is in the ignition, a skilled locksmith can get it to work, even without a key, by hotwiring your car, and then getting the button to work.

  • Method #4:

A skilled car locksmith with the right tools can also unlock the trunk of a car by taking a mold of the car lock and then cutting a brand new key. This is also a legitimate way of getting a trunk unlocked, and it does not take long to do.

Every car model needs to be dealt with in the most efficient way possible.

The thing to remember is that there is no one specific way to get the job done, and that an experienced technician will have a pocket full of several techniques that he uses for different occasions. Knowing exactly how to deal with all the various car models will ensure that each customer walks away content with the knowledge that s/he received the best possible service available.
