How to Unlock your Home Door If you Left your Keys Inside

Everyone has been there. You get home and realize that you left your keys in the house. Some house owners turn to break a window near the door. This will make it easier for them to unlock the front door from inside your home but causes permanent damage to the window. It can be frustrating, to say the least – but never fear! There are a few different ways to unlock your door without needing a key or spare set of keys. In this blog post, we will go over some helpful tips for getting back into your house if you have lost your keys inside

Here's How to Unlock your Home Door If you Left your Keys Inside:

1. Using Credit Card

The first thing you should do is try to unlock your door with a credit card or another thin piece of metal. Simply place the credit card inside the door opening and push down on it until you feel resistance. Bend the credit card back so that it forces the lock into breaking open. A credit card can be the magic fix for breaking into your house, but it won’t work on deadbolt locks. Deadbolts protrude outward from a door and are typically located at the bottom of a knob or handle. The use of a spring lock is recommended because even if they break or need to be broken, the loss will not be significant.

2. Using tools

Using tools like a screwdriver can also be an effective solution in these types of situations. When you find the hole in the door, grab a screwdriver and push it into the door. Push it as far down as possible to catch this groove which will make it easier to twist open your lock in Toronto. Still, this type of strategy can only be effective for locks with a privacy handle. There is a button in these types of doors that locks them on pushing. If you have locked yourself out, look closely and search for a small hole.

3. Remove the Hinge of the door

In order to unlock your door, take a screwdriver and wedge it between the pin and the lowermost finger. Next, locate the other hinges around your doorknob and start tapping them with a hammer until loose. Repeat this method on each Hinge one by one until unlocked. If you cannot gain entry using your key, this is the best option for gaining entry to your home. But make sure that it is your last action before going through other options.
