How To Unlock a Door
Available Locksmith’s Tips
It is not unusual to find yourself behind a locked door with no key in sight.
Try following these few simple steps that rely on common objects you can find around the house in order to unlock the door:
- Step 1: look for a screwdriver, an Allan wrench, a grinder, a metal paper clip, a straight pin, and a safety pin. These will prove helpful later on in unlocking a door.
- Step 2: pick up the screwdriver, insert it into the keyhole, and make sure the screwdriver fits comfortably in the lock. Then, gently wiggle it around, trying to unlock it the door.
- Step 3: get the Allan wrench and use the grinder to shave some metal off it so it fits nicely into the key hole. Once you have it just the right thickness, try to wiggle it around until the door unlocks.
- Step 4: get the metal paper clip, straighten it, and then make a small loop at its end. Insert the loop into the lock and try to unlock it by moving the lock pins into place.
- Step 5: use a straight pin and try to unlock the lock by inserting it into the key hole and moving it around.
- Step 6: take the metal safety pin and insert it into the lock. Move it around until the door unlocks.
