    Try a long thin flat bladed screwdriver. Most bathrooms have that type of lock with the small hole on the outside of the door. They key that usually came with them looks something like the key off a can of corned beef.

    Jon, I would guess that you need a very small straight-blade screwdriver, insert it in the hole and "fish around" a little, see if you can find a spot where it settles in, and then twist. Ours originally came with a small L shaped key, but the screwdriver will work. The one we use is just a small promotional / advertising screwdriver like you see given away a lot of times.

    ohiomike: Might be the only two responses that agree with one another.

    Use an awl or a short piece of straightened coat hanger. Put it in the hole and push. That should get you in. Consider my sign on name...

    screwdriver or straighten out a metal coat hanger and use it. Anything about 4" long that will fit in that diameter hole. Mike.

    I was going to say the samething as locdoc....only he didn't specify whether it was interior lock or exterior lock. Never seen an exterior that way....but we never had an Obamma until the last 4 years either.
