All right guys heres another thread of the henious bolier room style. My dad just bought a condo a block from the beach. As I was walking down the back stairway, I noticed there was another flight of stairs above mine, which would make it the 6th floor of a 5 floor building. I climb said stairs and realize that there is a door with one word on it. ROOF. This door is of course locked. I can see sunlight through the bottom crack of the door. I assume that behind this door is the area on top of the roof where they put air conditioning units and other things of that nature, making it one hell of a chill smoke spot if I could get it open. Being 6 stories up on the roof, ocean in front of me, all sorts of neon signs and roads behind me, it would be a dream come true. The problem is the lock. I have tryed opening it with a credit card. Nothing. Today I tryed a pocket knife. Still nothing. I even tryed making a bump key, but without a proper file, I had to use a butter knife. Ghetto I know. It turned out kinda rough and didnt work. So I need some ideas from you guys to get this thing open. Let me describe the lock. It is a door with a handle only, no deadbolt. Heres a rough scketch. == |0|====== == || with the 0 being where you would insert a key. I look inside of it and see the part where it holds it to the frame (dont know the term and have never picked locks before) but its the small metal piece. So please, any ideas on how to open this door are welcome. ps: If i have to I might drill the lock out or break the handle, as no one goes up there to ever notice this. Pss: If it helps i only need to open the door one time, and then will just stick a rock in it to keep it from closing.
