    I have a door in my house that we haven't been able to open for about a month. The doorknob is the one with a hole on one side, and a button on the other (to lock it). The problem is, unlike all the other handles with a hole in them, this one doesn't pop open when I stick something in the hole. Can anybody tell me how the fuck to open the door using the hole?

    My kids reguraly lock the bathroom door for some reason and the button doesn't work. I just take off the handle. Its pretty easy, only two screws.

    No screws on the outside of this handle, it's one of those security locks...

    It's ok to be a thinker.. but a bit of action can do wonders

    Smash the f**ker open with a 10 kg sledge and then replace the lock.

    This is called the 'little boy' system. when the first abombs were made the simplest idea was to collide subcritical lumps uf uranium down an old naval gun barrel. And hiroshima was un-born

    Not all of those locks internal pin are push to unlock, many are turn to unlock, and are notched for a very small screwdriver.

    You're gonna need a small screwdriver for that. The kind Gas Stations used to give away. It's a slotted locking device. Turn it, it should unlock. This was a child safety device used on bathroom doors when I was a Kid.

    The little screw driver didnt work either.

    When I press on whatever is inside the handle, it pushes inwards, so I dont know whats going on.

    You're aware you need to turn the handle while pushing it in, right? It doesn't just release the lock.

    Is the door wood or metal?
    Have you tried slipping a credit card between the strikplate and the door and sliding? If that doesn't work, a locksmith will probably cost about $25-$50 depending on where you are located.

    become a ghost, go through the door, become human again and open it from the other side. Simple as that

    I knocked my front door down the last time it pulled something like that. [​IMG] Taught that thing a lesson! [​IMG]
    I must admit, it felt good to do it.;)

    Yeah a friend of mine used to have a door into a mysterious room, locked from the inside (how the fuck that happened I don't know, it was before they moved in). So, we just started jumping at the door and loading it with fireworks (bad idea, wooden door.). It came open, and it seems like as soon as the door opens its like everything is right in the world. it's fucked up. Accomplishment is a good feeling.

    get a drill and drill the lock off the door

    failing that, get a drill and drill a small hole into
    the handle of the lock - then fill it with some (a tiny amount)
    nitro-glycerine - gently place a wooden firelighter in the hole
    light it - smoke a cigar clint eastwood style and wait for that
