You see it done in the movies all the time. A slick protagonist needs to explore the bad guy’s abode, so he whips out a card, wiggles it in the crack of the door, and strolls right on in. However, in real life, it’s not a universal lock pick technique (nor is it legal if you don’t have permission to enter). But, it is a pretty cool thing to know how to do, especially if you find yourself locked out of your own home!
Choose your largest, most easily flexible credit card.
Slide the card into the vertical crack between the door and the frame (where the lock is). Insert the card as far as it will go at a perpendicular angle with the door.
