Computerized locking mechanisms controlled via tablets and smartphones have become increasingly popular. While home security has become highly evolved in the past decade, so have the means for criminals to slide past these systems. Although high-tech solutions may seem safer than traditional methods, this may not be entirely accurate.
Phil Crockett, a do-it-yourself guru on YouTube, took a step back and created a manual mechanism that will help to secure any door in an emergency. Using just a fork, he managed to make a secure and reliable makeshift lock. His creation is very useful when wanting to add security in public places that may have broken locks such as motel rooms, public restrooms and dressing rooms.
