  • Q:

    How do I unlock a deadbolt without a key?

    A:

    If the lock is a single-cylinder deadbolt and the knob inside the door is accessible turning the knob opens the lock. If the lock is a double-cylinder lock or the inside of the door is not accessible, special lock picking tools are necessary. If the deadbolt is not fully locked into position, pressing a credit card or other flat tool into the space left by the partially opened deadbolt allows it to open. Completely locked deadbolts require special lock picking tools to open.
