Have you ever been in a situation where you are locked out of your house and you do not have the keys? It sounds scary, right? This can be one of the most unfortunate situations that one can face.
But you cannot predict the future. It may happen to you anytime. But when the time actually comes, we are clueless of what to do and start panicking. At that particular time, nothing really comes to our mind.
We feel like we should have learnt about something that could help us getting out of such situations. Now, here we are going to tell you a few ways in which you can open locked door without a key.
Yes, it sounds very unrealistic but it is possible to do it.
1.Use a card to open a locked door
This is a very effective technique however, it will only work if the door has a spring lock. You can use any card like your debit card or credit card. It is better to use the card that is not of much value to you.
Insert the card between the door lock and the door frame. Now push the card against the frame. After this, bend the card back to force the lock back into the door.
In case, there is no space between the door lock and the door frame, you can insert the card a little above the lock and then bring it down with force. In this case, you may want to use a thick card.
2.Use a screw driver to open a locked door
We know that it may not be possible for you to get a screw driver in such situation. But it is very useful in opening the door if you can get it from somewhere.
A screw driver can be used just like a key to open the door. You just have to push it into the hole on the knob of the door. Go as far as you can with the screwdriver. Then you have to turn or twist the screwdriver until the lock is opened.
A small or thin screwdriver will work the best for this. It is also possible to remove the hinges of the lock with a screwdriver.
However, removing the hinges will not be possible on a door that has a high security level.
3.Open the door with a bobby pin
A bobby pin can also be used as a substitute to a key. It is also not that difficult to find a bobby pin. If you are a woman, then there will be surely so many bobby pins lying in your bag.
Still if you do not find one, then you can get it from a local store at a very cheap price. It is the most common way used by people to open a door without a key. We all must have seen this in movies.
Now to open the door with bobby pin, you will need two of them.
Bend both the pins in a particular way. Now, insert one of the pin in the door lock where you usually insert your keys.
Now you have to bend the fulcrum ends of the pin and use one end to enter the bottom of keyhole.
The other end of the pin will be at the bottom. Now, bend the second pin from the fulcrum to make it turn in a long straight line.
After this, bend the other pin to its end that is straight to make it enter to the top of the keyhole.
