    I'm in the second bedroom looking for my shirt.
    My two + a half year old son is in the hall.
    I hear the bedroom door close.
    My son closed it............and locked it from the hall.
    Huh ?
    I thought my wife + I childproofed the door locks ?
    Apparently, we missed one.
    So........
    I try to talk my son into opening the door.
    He is trying......I see the knob turning.
    I stay calm.......speak calmly.......but he's starting to cry.
    15 mins later
    I get the two hinge bolts out but can't pull the door off.
    I got blisters on my hands,now.
    Luckily..........REAL LUCKY.........the phone was w/ me.
    I call the In Laws..........NO ANSWER !
    I'm starting to panic..........because my son has stopped answering me.
    I'm on the second floor...........can't climb down.
    So...........I call 911.......calmly explain.
    *
    Fire truck arrives.......along w/ cops.
    *
    My wife ( got a hold of her mother = mother has keys ) is at work.
    M-I-L walks up to the firemen + cops --
    I'm leaning out the window - "Great ! My M-I-L has keys !....open the door, please !"
    NOPE !
    M-I-L says "I don't have keys ....your wife borrowed them last week."
    ****** My wife has misplaced about 5 sets of different keys / I have tried many options *******
    *
    I told the firemen "Hey guys......don't break anything down."
    They were about to bust the front door.
    I told them "I think there is an unlocked window in the next room over."
    They came in the second floor window.
    *
    My son was quietly watching TV on our bed.
    He seems okay.
    I thanked those RESPONDERS........one and all......over + over !!!
    *
    I have blisters all over my hands.
    And have neutralized all the locks + knobs.
    The bedroom I was in -- had it's lock mechanism facing into the hallway ---
    Must have been that way since we moved in.......somehow I overlooked this ?
    *
    What a way to start my day !
    My wife was more traumatized than me ---
    And I can't believe I couldn't get that door off ?

    Good luck with all this and the keys over the threshold is a great idea. I just got over all this with my daughter, now I'm experiencing it all over again with my two year old grandson.

    This happened to my neighbor awhile ago. She went outside to get something from her car and her kid locked her outside while it was snowing and like 20 degrees outside. She tried to talk the kid through unlocking the door for a good 20 min with no luck. She knocked on my door and asked if she could warm up and use my phone so I let her. She then calls a locksmith who said he'll be be over shortly.


    So I got this girl in my apartment trying to make small talk while trying to finish packing cause I gotta leave for a flight to Vegas in an hour. I think I was praying more for the locksmith to hurry up and let her in than she was. I didn't wanna kick her out in the cold and say sorry gotta get on a plane for sunny Vegas. The locksmith showed up pretty quickly and got her in and I was on my way.
