Bathroom door locks are usually made out of simple turn locks, but they can be a pesky thing as its frequent usage may cause the door lock to malfunction. Jammed bathroom door locks are a more common occurrence. When you find your bathroom door lock jammed or stuck in some instances, these are the steps you can take depending on what type of lock it is.



Latch Locks: These locks can be very delicate and can rust or break easily. It is not uncommon to hear that the latch lock snaps off and gets stuck in the strike plate. However, it is an easy lock to break though. You could either pull the door open really hard and hope it breaks, or you could use a card or bobby pin to try and manoeuvre the latch loose.

Push-Button Lock: This one needs to be attempted other than yourself unfortunately. On the other side of the push button lock, is where you insert the key. Using a butter knife, a flathead screwdriver or something similar, push it deep into the keyhole and try to twist the lock open.



Thumbturn Lock:  This one is the same as the push button lock. You can try to unlock it with the same methods.
