Being prepared, even though some may laugh at you about it, is best to know what to do so you don’t panic should the unthinkable, “I’ll never lock myself inside my trunk” happens; and don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of air in there. Take a good look around the inside of your trunk and locate the emergency latch, or if your vehicle even has one. No matter what the model of the car, all you have to do is pull on the latch and the trunk pops open.
If there is no latch, look at the backseat of the car; is there one there? If so, pull on it. If that doesn’t work, you may need to push on the seat a bit and try pulling on the latch again so it releases and you can escape through the car doors.
If this doesn’t work, look for a weak spot in the seats like gaps in between the backseats. Push or kick on them to get one or both to open, and don’t give up if at first you don’t succeed. Keep at it until the seats release and you’re safely free. Remember, you have an appointment to sell your car to us!
If either option above fails, or if the car isn’t parked and is moving, break the taillights. This sounds easy enough and it shouldn’t be too difficult. The carpet in your trunk will most likely need to be pulled back to get to the light(s) and it should peel back easily. Use an object in the trunk or kick the taillight to break it. Make sure you break all the way through the light so your hand fits through the opening. Once your hand is out, start waving to get someone’s attention!
