If you’re locked out of your house, your best bet is to call a locksmith.
But if you’re just looking for a way to get into your house in case you forget your key, here are a few methods:
- Try using a wire coat hanger. Straighten out the hanger and use it to manipulate the locking mechanism from the other side of the door.
- Use a credit card (again, be careful not to break it) or other thin plastic card. Slide the card between the door and the frame, and try to pry open the door that way.
