Car Trunk Locks
So why is the trunk lock such a problem? With older model vehicles, it really isn't. Locksmiths usually have no trouble opening up older trunks for you. But as cars have become more sophisticated and as thieves have become more keen on stealing from trunks or using them as an entry point, car manufacturers have upped the security measures used in the trunk along with the rest of the car. This requires locksmiths to keep up with all the new stuff being implemented in each new model of car.
It's important to know what a locksmith's procedure is when handling a trunk lockout. Some lack the training or expertise to bypass certain trunk security features and can only re-key the lock, which will necessarily be more expensive. Our experienced team will assess the situation and open the trunk without re-keying if it is possible. This can save you quite a bit of money.
