How many times have you opened your trunk to load it with things like groceries or luggage and sat your keys down to use both hands? Many people do this — and most remember to pick the keys back up before shutting the trunk.
Locking keys in the trunk happens more than you may think. Let’s talk about how locksmiths can help you when it does.
Check For Inside Access
Locking your keys in the trunk may be no big deal if you have access to your trunk through the inside of your car. In SUVs, accessing the trunk is as easy as reaching over the back seat. Some cars have latches that allow the backseats to pull down, allowing you to get into the trunk that way.
If your car has these options, then you are in luck. But, it is probably likely that you may not even have the opportunity to reach the inside of your car because it is locked. In this case, you are most definitely going to need the help of a locksmith.
Locksmiths Have the Necessary Tools
Locksmiths have the necessary tools to help you open your trunk. And, because they are mobile, they come with everything they need right to your location. Using skills and experience, locksmiths can look closely to address the issue, the lock, the car’s make and model, and determine the best way to gain entry to the trunk. Locksmiths know that each car needs to have its own approach so taking the time to find the right technique is important.
Quite often this is a simple task for a professional locksmith – and it can all happen without causing any damage to the vehicle (which is always a plus).
Locksmiths Can Handle Deadlocked Situations
Some high-end cars don’t have actual locks. There is no way to manipulate the locks because there are not any at all! Locking the keys in one of these cars means the car will be deadlocked – and that can be a scary situation. The good news is that although the situation may seem impossible, it is not a problem for a locksmith.
There are different methods for unlocking deadlocked cars. Regardless of whether your system is a standard option or a custom-designed deadlock system, professional locksmiths have the knowledge and experience to determine the best way to gain entry to the vehicle and get your keys from the trunk.
