Universal Locked Door Opener. (does not work on deadbolts.)
It was an expired credit card ;) I guess it could be somewhat bigger or smaller but not a lot... - ThomasC206
Does anyone have dimensions on this card? Don't have a lot of time to play with, and want to get it right the first time. - JacobS164
thomas do you have any dimensions of your card or can you be pretty liberal with your cuts? - JacobS164
Man, thanks a lot...being trying for the past 2 hours, your solution worked in 5 mintues
Thanks Man!! I'll keep a card in my wallet just in case I lock myself out of my dorm room again.
You didn't need to cut the card you slide it in to try and find the lock hit the lock sideways a few time then push on the sentence of the spring lock /slope thing that keeps the door locked then the door should pop open - JohnD238
There are so many ways to prevent yourself from getting locked out to begin with, people - be aware!Read this article:http://www.frontrangelocksmith.com/blog/5-things-y... - robbiesimms
You didn't have to cut the card it would have done the same if you left the card alone :^) - JohnD238
I tried it myself because I needed to unlock a door for my friend who got locked out. The door had an outside molding which made it hard, but I cut it out just like he did, and kept measuring it to another similar doors lock. Once I got it to right size I slipped it through. At first I was afraid of breaking the card by pushing the card in too harshly but then once I finally shoved it in at full force the door popped open. 10/10 would def do it again!
this happened to me too
