No there is not, but there is an easier way. You take a door stop (yep the ol triangle ones) and a hammer and put the door stop along the top and near the corner of the door. Hammer carefully the door stop into the door jamb and use a coat hanger to get your keys/hit the lock/pull the handle. Not that ive had to do this a few times, but it seems easiest for me and saves the locksmith charge.

On older cars you can remove back seat and sometimes get into trunk. Most newer cars have solid wall, but some have knock out panel behind fold down center armrest. Why not just use spare keys you hid in hide-a-key inside bumper? Or wife's keys? Or spare set you keep in the house? You could call a locksmith too.
Contrary to the repair manual; you do not need to remove the steering wheel. Remove the bottom dash panel below the steering wheel and then the bottom black steering wheel cover (3 screws). You will see a 1/8 inch hole and pin below the lock set. Put the key lock in the neutral position and push the pin and remove the ignition lock set. Put the new lock set in the neutral position and insert it. Turn it to the off position which resets the lock pin.
You should be able to go to Ford and have them key a set of lock
tumblers for you (they usually don't charge for one). Possibly re-key the locks that are already in the car. Most parts
departments have a "magic" guy who can do this for you, that way your
locks will all match. This will also save you the purchase of 2 of the lock tumblers.
The door installs should be fairly easy to
install as it is rather straight forward. If the trunk does not have a
trunk release you may have to drill out and destroy the lock tumbler to
open it and remove it.
