I locked my car keys in my trunk. How to open it?

Usually, car locksmiths pick and turn the door lock first. The reason is that the door lock is easy to reach, and it’s at the right angle to unlock the door.

After the door lock is open, there are two ways to go depending on the situation:

  • We can reach the trunk from the car’s interior: In that case, the customer can grab his key quickly and set the alarm off.
  • We cant open the trunk from the inside: Sometimes, there is an interior trunk release button on the left or right-hand side. If not, the locksmith will pick the lock on the trunk so that you can get back your keys quickly.

Police can break the window in case of an emergency. Police officers are very helpful, especially if you are old or vulnerable. There were several cases when older adults locked their keys inside the boot or ignition. The police officers tried to solve the situation; they contacted us, reassured the customer that the help was coming and left.

After we arrived and opened the car, the vehicle’s owner was confused about why we required payment for the service. They had the impression that the police helped them for free. Due to this and other bad experiences, we require a travelling fee paid in advance of the job.

We use a non-destructive Japanese tool called “Lishi” to open cars. We insert the device into the lock and set the wafers to a particular position that opens the lock. We can do more than open a car door with this tool. We can even cut a key just like the original by decoding the lock with the device.

This revolutionary process requires a lot of practice and knowledge and can only be done by a professional auto locksmith.
