Assuming all the tools aren't in the garage....

(When I was in college, the trunk on my car got stuck closed.  It was a
defective latch  design, that allowed something to get stuck in it and block
the latch from moving.  Solution was "remove back seat.  remove stuff from
trunk, free latch. Fail to figure out how to properly put back seat in."
which was made very complicated that every tool I owned was in the trunk.)
