How to open my bedroom door
How to open the door of my room if I forgot the keys inside? It is at this moment when we seek to inform ourselves and find simple and quick solutions, since, in various circumstances, an incident of this type can be something very bad, or perhaps good, that is; From all the experiences we can get great learnings.
And, opening the door to our own room when it has been closed is a resource that will allow us to learn new techniques. Clear, we must be careful with our safety, in addition to avoiding, as far as possible, causing damage to the door and the lock that requires an additional cost in repairs.
Types of doors
To know how to open a door, it is essential to identify which door we are facing. For this reason it is favorable to know some types.
There are countless doors that can be used in outdoor and indoor areas, such as bedrooms. However, we can highlight the most common, such as: those made of wood; that can also be in homes, businesses, and that offer attractiveness and elegance, but do not provide high security to the owners.
On the other hand, we will find doors with triple locks, which are made of thick metals with high resistance to blows and strong impacts. At present, these doors are common for the main entrance of the houses.
And finally we have, in this group, doors with very complex locks supported by a system with dozens or hundreds of mechanisms and technologies that make their opening difficult. These are usually highly coordinated, precise, and basically impenetrable systems.
In general, the most common type of door for bedrooms are wooden ones. So, here are some options to open the bedroom door:
To use this method, we only need to use objects that are within reach of our hands, such as: clips and hairpins.
Once we have any of these materials, we introduce it into the keyhole as follows:
- We push the chosen object (in the case of the clip it must be disassembled and bent again but this time the two ends must meet) applying tension, in the lower part of the key hole.
- Through the upper area of the hole (on top of the previously introduced object) we put another of the objects, but completely unfolded, as if it were just a piece of wire and we move it slightly upwards, while pressing inwards with the previous piece.
With a butter knife
It is a simple procedure that consists of inserting the knife through the keyhole, pressing and turning, it’s that simple! Although it does not work for all locks, it is ideal for simple knob models.
Another way to use this tool to open the door is taking out the latch with the tip of the knife, where the rigidity of this is a plus point. To do this, it is only necessary to place the blade of the tool in question in the slot between the door and the frame, place the knife on top of the latch and gradually insert it into the hole where the latch or element that keeps the door closed falls.
Finally, the knob or handle is moved as if trying to open the door, so that the latch moves and can be removed more easily.
Use a plastic or credit card
This technique is quite popular, although it is not effective on modern doors with slats covering the latch. However, it does work for models with simple and basic locks.
The trick is to put the card or plastic in the same space recommended in the knife method. Slide the long end of the card or plastic right in the middle of the wall frame and the door lock; above the lock.
Rapid up and down movements are required to generate an impulse tilt of the card so that it is positioned behind the lock latch.
Then very slowly but firmly push the card towards your body, while turning the knob. The card will roll in the middle of one of the sides of the latch and the door frame, thus allowing it to be removed from the rest hole. The door will give, as long as you keep the card in the middle of the latch and the hole.
It’s important to note that if the door is locked past it, the trick is unlikely to work. To do this, you must use a more rigid and resistant object that allows you to make a better lever, as is the case with the aforementioned knife technique.
Use brute force against the door
This would be, in any case, the last option to consider, since taking this action can cause physical damage to whoever executes it. But, you can always exert force on the door and knock it down in emergency situations.
You should only adopt a solid posture that consolidates all the brute force in one part of the body, for example, a leg, and proceed to apply moderate blows, on the door until it opens.
Another part of the body that can bear some force is the shoulder, but it can be very painful. To avoid this, it is a good idea to use a cushion or pillow that reduces the impact.
With a similar key
If possible. If you lost your room key, you can open the door with a similar key. It does not matter that it is not the key to that door, you are looking for one from another room and you can use it. Of course, if there are several key options, it is better to choose the most similar one.
The next thing is to place it inside the lock, if it does not fit well, it is pushed with a rubber hammer or any other object. The next thing is to turn it from side to side constantly. In case of not opening, you can use pliers to support yourself.
When it comes to opening a door, it is best to use the simplest and least invasive methods that do not cause damage, since a broken door implies an expense.
And remember do not commit any illegal action because justice will fall on you.
