Cincinnati KEYS LOCKED IN TRUNK
How Do You Handle A Car Trunk Lockout?
We have been helping the people out with their automotive locksmith needs for many years. One of the most common calls we get is for a set of keys locked in a car trunk. It happens all the time; the keys slide out of a hand or a front pocket without the person realizing, or they set them down inside the trunk while loading some heavy items and then forget they are in there. Everyone does it at some point or another, but it can be a shock when it happens.
We understand the feeling of frustration when you realize your keys are stuck in your trunk. You start to worry that your whole day will be disrupted and a chain reaction of horrible things will occur. There's no need to worry, however. We can get your trunk open and your keys recovered in almost no time at all!
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.
Locksmiths have to be familiar with the security features on each make and model of vehicle, the details of which are often not made public to deter car thieves. That's why calling a trained and experienced locksmith for your locked trunk is so important. A good locksmith will describe their range of capability on their website so that you can get an idea of whether or not they'll be able to open your trunk, or have to go straight to a re-key.
If you lock your keys in the trunk, don't panic. Just keep calm and follow the following steps.

Rekeying a Lock

Backup Keys: Always a Good Idea
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.
