All households and hotel rooms — with or without children — should have this must-have item somewhat handy for that “What If?” moment with the under-5 set.
What Is It?
Ah. The must-have item is a 3mm cylindrical tool to unlock keyless door locks. This is handy for children who lock themselves into a room either on purpose to play “Get-Away” or by mistake as well as for adults who have brainfarts.
Why Do I Need It?
You need this tool so A.you don’t freak out, and B. you can open the door without having to call your super/landlord/go-to fix-it person.
How Does It Work?
It’s simple. Just insert into the hole in the doorknob and push to de-activiate the lock!
Where Do I Get It?
Just stop by your local hardware store and ask for a 3mm allen wrench or nail. If you are at a hotel, grab one or two of the plastic coffee stirrers at the coffee counter or a deli with a self-serve counter.
What If It Doesn’t Work?
If none of the above tools work, just take your Philips-head screwdriver and unscrew the fasteners holding the doorknob in place!
These handy tools are live-safers, especially with vacation time and hotel trips coming up!
