How Locksmith Open Door

There are a lot of methods a locksmith can use to open a door.
A lot of these techniques will need to work with the door lock
itself. The techniques used can be split into two common
methods of approach: non-destructive door opening
(Non-destructive entry) and destructive door opening
(Destructive entry).

However, you should not worry. A professional locksmith
trained to open doors using the latest non-destructive
methods and tools to get you back in without any
unnecessary damage to your locks or doors.

Non-Destructive Entry

This method involves opening doors without damaging the lock or the door. Typically, this technique of door opening will be done by using one or more of the following opening techniques and tools: lock picking with hand picks or an electric pick gun, using mortise lock decoders, manually sliding open the lock latch, bypassing the lock and using other specialist tools, such as the letterbox tool. These professional methods enable a trained locksmith to gain access to and manipulate a lock in a variety of different ways depending on the circumstance.

The first thing a locksmith will do is to try to control the system that opens the lock. This method is also known as lock picking. When lock picking, what the locksmith is trying to do is open the lock without causing any damage. This enables you to keep on using the key you already have that was potentially locked inside the property. In almost every case, lock picking will gain you access to your property.

Destructive entry

When non-destructive entry techniques don’t work and the lock is particularly stubborn or resistant to opening. The destructive door opening is only likely to be tried. In these cases, the locksmith should keep damage to a minimum to lower expenses. These methods tend to include: drilling a lock open using special techniques or using force to open the door.

Typically, high-end cylinders have a high level of security, which might prevent the locksmith from opening the lock in a non-destructive manner. In this case, as a complete last resort, the locksmith may drill the cylinder in a strategic location to unlock the cylinder. This will necessitate the replacement of the cylinder or the complete lock.

Of course, aside from opening your property’s doors, a locksmith can also open the door of a locked vehicle. Here are some ways they can open a locked car door:


The keyless entry system of modern cars means that programming is vital to unlocking the car. Professional locksmiths have a profound knowledge of reprogramming keyless entry systems to unlock the vehicle. This method is also considered as a non-destructive method.

Key analyzer

Another technique to unlock a keyless entry system involves using a key analyzer. The method helps the locksmith to accurately know the electrical resistance values of that particular car. After they know the code, locksmiths will use the mechanical key cutter to make the new key that precisely resembles the original key.
