SELF house door opening without a key? 9 ways

Want to try opening your door’s lock yourself without a key? We found 9 ways people managed to do that. Below are all the possible solutions:

lock-open-without-key-via-letterbox1. Opening the door through the mailbox
You can try angling through the mailbox with, for example, a clothes hanger, stick, garden hose or a piece of iron wire.

This only works with an overlay lock, and this method is only possible if the door is unlocked and if you have access to an object to angler with.


2. Getting the door open with a pass
By inserting a card, piece of plastic or paper clip between the door, you can try to open it.

This trick only works if your door is unlocked and if an anti-intrusion strip is not installed. Warning: your (bank) card may break while performing this method.

lock-opening-with-drill-and-screwdriver3. Using a drill and a screwdriver to open the door
By drilling a small hole under your lock and sticking a piece of iron wire through it, you can try to push the door handle down.

For this method, you will need both a drill and an iron wire. It will be a difficult task when these are in.


4. Opening the door with a screwdriver
If your door has door hinges on the outside, you can tap or pull out the hinge pins with a screwdriver. Then open the door at the hinges.


5. Opening the door with the hard hand
You can tap in a window at the door. However, watch out when you put your arm through it to open the door. It is also an expensive solution because you then have to have the window fixed.


6. Climbing to open the door
Is there still a window or balcony door open somewhere? Climb up or use a ladder and crawl inside. Are you careful not to fall?

lock-opening-with-reserve-key7. Opening the door with a spare key
Does a neighbor or family member still have a spare key of yours? Then pick it up and open your door.


8. Drilling out cylinder to get inside
You can drill out the cylinder of the lock with a drill bit. For this you do need a drill, drill bits of various thicknesses, a hammer, a flat screwdriver and a center punch.


9. Opening the door with a pin
Is the key still on the inside of the door? By using a pin, you can try to push it out. First, slide a large piece of paper under the door. Insert the pin into the lock and push the key out. Then try sliding the keyed paper toward you. However, this method is only a possibility if the key is straight in the lock and not attached to a bunch of keys.

Hi! Yesterday I slammed the door in the evening and left the key inside. I called and ordered this master. Then I read the reviews here and was surprised how many negative reviews there are) I called them and said that I didn’t want to fall into their trap if they tried to scam me. Fortunately for me, there was no deception, everything was very adequate, the master was very pleasant and polite. Very nice price for services. Everything was done quickly and without damage. When I asked why there were so many negative reviews here, he replied that he had just bought this company and is building a reputation. Don't be afraid to reach out to these guys. Everything was very clear and professional on their part. I recommend!

The cost of drilling the lock was extremely high. I paid 220 euros, excluding taxes, just for a hole in the lock. I didn't even request a new lock, but if I had, it would have cost even more. The service was quick, with the technician arriving at my home within 40 minutes. They managed to open the door without damaging the frame, only the lock. The technician was also friendly, which is why I am giving them a higher rating. However, I still feel that 220 euros for drilling a lock is excessive, even for a company. It would have been more reasonable if the cost included a lock replacement.

Sleutel aan de binnenkant van de deur laten zitten, stom! Ze stonden gelukkig zelfs op zondag binnen 20 minuten voor de deur en Jeffrey maakte onze deur snel en zonder schade open. Super blij mee, ik zou ze zeker weer bellen.
