I have a home with old school door handles on the bathroom/bedroom doors. It's the push button type lock with no lock on the outside, or even screws on the handle. How would I open this up without breaking down the door?
My friend is really good with using a credit card on locks, but the door frames are so deep the only door he is able to open is mine. Short of replacing the door handles (insufficient funds), what can we do if this happens again? A couple weekends ago an inebriated girl locked herself in my friends room and passed out, we were really worried until eventually she came to and let herself out. There's obviously some hazards involved.
If the inevitable happens would a locksmith simply break the handle off with a saw? Would calling a locksmith even do anything? Is there something we could do that doesn't involve an expensive locksmith call?
