How to unlock a bathroom / bedroom door that has a privacy door handle set installed. Have you ever been in that situation where you have accidently locked yourself out of your bathroom or bedroom, or your toddler has accidently locked themselves in the bathroom / bedroom and you can't get them out! The first thing to do is not panic! Don't call the locksmith and don't reach for the closest sledge hammer and commence smashing the door in. it really is easy to open the door when you know how.In most instances all you need is a thin screw driver, a nail or even an unfolded paper clip (however it does need to be a heavy duty paper clip). If you're lucky, you'll be able to lay your hands on the special tool that was supplied with the door handle set when the handle was installed. This is a tool that is designed to be used for just that occasion when you are locked out.
