Open a Locked Door Without a Key in Under 5 Seconds - Locksmith Recommended

do you know when your locks on your door

incorrectly installed they can be

bypassed in just a matter of seconds

there's lots of videos online showing

you how to do it but none of them

showing you how to stop it

that's what we're gonna show you today

I'm Robert with Acme locksmith and this

is lock Smith recommended all righty

then so here's a locked door as you can

see the knob is locked I'm going to use

two techniques to get into this door the

first one is a technique where you can

just cut out the plastic from a water

bottle or a coke can to get in very

simple indeed door is still locked or

the other thing that you can use is

they're always sending you these little

thin plastic cards in the mail for

credit solicitations those will work as

well they're a little trickier at times

depending on how thick the card is but

they'll get you in two so let's talk

about how to fix that alright so how

were we able to get into that door so

quickly what all comes down to the lock

installation that lock was installed in

correctly we actually modified the door

to make sure it was installed in

correctly and the reason it was

installed incorrectly is because of this

little piece right here on your latch

you may not have ever even paid any

attention to it it's called the dead

locking plunger and when you're in store

is installed correctly that plunger

should be pushed into the door by the

strike that is in the frame when that

plunger is pushed into the door this

latch cannot go in to the lock so that

prevents that type of home invasion the

problem is most home builders and most

homeowners when they install these

things don't pay any attention to that

and if this lock is installed

incorrectly so the plunger is in the out

position you can simply use the

technique we showed you to bypass that

lock so another little tip I want to

show you while I have this demo unit out

is this deadbolt you want to make sure

that the hole in your door frame is deep

enough so this deadbolt will be fully


into the out position you hear that

click when that is fully in the out

position you should hear or feel it go

all the way out and the reason for that

is that's what makes sure that this

latches correctly and can't be pushed

into the door the hole in your frame is

not deep enough so that when you lock

the deadbolt it is not fully extended it

can simply be pushed back into the door

and just like the latch below now it is

a little bit harder to do because to

bypass this lock you actually get a

knife in here and slowly hit the top of

this so that you force it back in and it

will damage the door but it can be done

so the two things you want to check to

make sure that your locks are installed

correctly is one you want to make sure

that the plunger will actually be pushed

in when your door is closed and that

will prevent your latch from being

bypassed and you want to make sure that

your deadbolt is fully extended when

your door is closed if you found this
