How to Open Bedroom Door without Keys

Before using these tools, please make sure that you know the type of door so you can choose the right tool to open it. Basically, there are two types of locks that you can see from their hole or slot, those are push-in and twist-button types.


We’re pretty sure that most people know this trick from some movies. Other than this tool, you can also use other stiff bits of wire.

  • Bend the tool apart to make a long and straight piece of metal.
  • If the door has a push-in lock, insert it directly into the hole until you feel some resistance, then push.
  • For a twisting type, insert the pin into the keyhole and twist the knob while wiggling the pin at the same time until it catches on something, then apply pressure. To open a twist-lock, you should sweep the item both clockwise and counter-clockwise until the lock releases.
  • Once you hear a click, it indicates the door is unlocked.
