Call your roommates, family member, or landlord

If you have roommates or family living with you, call them. If you have left your phone inside, you can reach out to your neighbor. But if you’re renting, try calling the landlord or visiting the rental office. Oftentimes, apartment or townhouse management offices can help you out of a jam. 

Check for an opened window or back door

If you left the window open, you might be able to wedge it wide enough to climb through and if you forgot to lock your back door then it is the easiest way to access your house again. But always ensure to lock all your windows and doors when you leave, particularly if it takes some time. Or else opportunistic burglars will visit your premises. 

Swipe your credit card through the door space

It is possible to jimmy your door open by swiping your credit card through the space between the door and the frame while simultaneously jiggling around with your doorknob. You can attempt to hit the locking mechanism with your card and then press it to unlock the door.

Take apart the doorknob

Various types of doorknobs assemble in different ways. Some can be taken apart using a paperclip, hammer, and screwdriver. With the screwdriver, take off all the screws that hold the handle in place, then remove the hinge screws using your paperclip.

Once you take apart your doorknob and get into your home, it’s necessary to put it back together right away to prevent intruders from entering your home.
