Are you wondering how to open a locked door with a screwdriver? The surprising news is we can use it to pick the handle of the indoor doors or remove the knob. Aside from that, it also works on taking off the door’s hinges.
How to Pick a Lock With a Screwdriver
While a screwdriver is pretty worthless as a lock pick, it can be used as a turning tool! This being said, you will need a screwdriver that is small enough so that you still have room to fit a lock pick into the keyway. It will also need to be a flathead profile.
Alright, so we know that we can use a screwdriver as a turning tool, but what can we use for a lock pick?
Follow these steps to successfully open your deadbolt lock using a screwdriver:
Start by gathering all the necessary tools. For this project, you’ll need a bobby pin and a skinny, flat head screwdriver. The small screwdrivers that are used to repair eyeglasses are the ideal choice for this. This type of screwdriver will also help prevent any possible damage to the deadbolt.
Know which kind of lock you are working with. This will determine how much time it’ll take you to pick the lock. Most residential and commercial areas use a pin and tumbler lock. Regardless, to open any type of lock, the objective is to imitate the action of the key.
Take your bobby pin and bend it so that it is completely straight. Then, insert the bumpy end of the bobby pin into the keyhole of the deadbolt lock.
Insert the end of your small flat head screwdriver into the keyhole, just under where you placed the bobby pin. Do not push the head of the screwdriver in too far, as you will need to have enough room to move the bobby pin in multiple directions and also in and out of the keyhole.
Move the bobby pin up, down, in, and out of the deadbolt’s keyhole. By doing this, you should be manipulating the tumbler pins inside the lock.
As you are moving the pins, use your screwdriver to glide the edge in between the pins. Make sure that the tip of the screwdriver is long enough to keep all of the tumblers up.
With all of the tumblers inside the lock-up, twist the screwdriver to unlock the deadbolt. If you follow all of these steps, you will likely have success with a single attempt.
If you are unsuccessful with the first try, try different angles and combinations of moving the bobby pin to influence the pins. Use more force with the screwdriver than you did before and apply more pressure while twisting.
