How do you open a trunk without a key?

Unlocking locked car in Miami FL using locksmiths Technics for opening the car safely

Forgot your keys inside your trunk? Don’t cry too hard, it happens to everyone! 

If you have a Slim Jim available / something else you could use to open your front door- we have a few DIY tips!

If you don’t have any tools on you, check what’s around- you could call a locksmith, but it might take up to 20 min response time for him to get to you and another 5 to 10 min to open the trunk door- it’s simple and won’t cost you more than 50$, so either way- you’re safe!

First – unlock your cars’ doors to get inside:

Use the Slim Jim to gently unlock and open your car door; first try to slide the hook of your Slim Jim inside, through the passengers’ side window. When inside, feel around to find the locking mechanism of your car. It will usually be right next to the window, on your car door handle. Hook the rod to the locking mechanism, to unlock you have to make sure the Slim Jim is stuck well inside the lock rod, then pull it up gently until you hear your normal unlocking click sound – congratulations! Your car is now unlocked!

When inside – work the trunk:

Once you’ve unlocked your car you can easily pull the handle (from outside) and get inside. Then, open the trunk by pulling the manual release, usually located in the drivers’ side, underneath your steering wheel. In case the release is stuck, head to the back seat to manually release the lever (you have to fold the back seat down to access your trunk).

Last but not least!

When you’re inside your trunk release the safety lever, usually located near the trunks’ back / front. This one is important as this lever is there to protect you and prevent anyone from being locked inside a trunk. Once you pull the lever – your trunk door will open immediately!

How much does it cost to make a key from a lock?

Locks & Keys - Quickly locksmith Miami

Making a new key without the original, based solely on the lock, is a fairly simple procedure that any certified locksmith can do in minimal timing. About the costs- it could be 20$ and up to 350$- depending on the lock and where your locksmith came from to get the job done!

Your Local Miami locksmith:

If you’re in Miami you’re in luck! As Quickly Locksmith offers re-keying, done by the highest standards, 100% insured, without the original key needed, at a price that’s unbeatable around Miami– and rest assured, we’ve checked around! Re-keying a lock without working the pins at all is the easiest job a locksmith can do- it costs around 15-30$ (depending on your location and how many keys you’d want eventually). This is a simple, on site, job- and still we recommend you won’t settle for just any available locksmith and make sure you choose a certified locksmith, as our work is 100% insured.

Your door- Your Pins- Your New Key:

When we’re working on your lock in order to make a new set of keys it is a delicate job; sometime a locksmith would have to re arrange the locks’ pins so any old keys wondering around the world would be irrelevant now (it’s the safest way to go about it when moving to a new property etc.) that is a craft that might add a sum to the total amount required to get the job done- a sum that ranges between 5o$ in case we’re dealing with an old school simple lock, and might even be 90$. The reason would be that newest innovative smart locks pins are harder to re-shape and might damage the entire lock.

Key cutting is also very cheap- 5$ to 20$ for a new smart key!

Can a locksmith make a lock from a key?

YES! It’s not easy, and not a rapid process – but a certified locksmith can definitely make a lock just from a single key!

Call your local Miami locksmith:

In most cases we get a call about re-keying. It tends to do the other way around- customers who lost their key, and therefore want a new set of keys without the original. Just to be totally clear here- any professional certified locksmith can make a spare key without the original, on the spot, just by working with your lock – this is a simple, cost effective procedure that leaves you with a brand new- solid set of keys!

However, if you don’t have the actual lock- and you want to make a new one just based on an existing key it would be a whole different world, might take some time and won’t work with any lock…

What can be done!

What we can always do with just a key is to make a strong solid old school lock! As a professional certified locksmith company we provide residential and commercial locksmith services all over Miami and we’re the first to declare old locks as rock solid. 

They may not be the first choice for a modern elegant office space / residential temporary housing – but they are still the leading lock choice for homes around the world!

Don’t forget – Safety first!

When there are so many available options for a new lock- one would have to wonder, why do you want to make a new lock based on a key alone? No judgment here of course, we’ve honestly heard it all by now, and can reassure you – it is possible, we can make a new lock with a key! But at the same time, not any lock is worth making, it might prove to be an expansive worthless process.
