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.
