Step One: Finding a door
First, you will need to locate a door that you would like to open. Make sure the door is closed for the purpose of this tutorial, trying to open an already opened door will look funny. If it is open, simply walk through, or close it and follow the next steps.
Handles are typically round (knob), or approximately 5 inches long, approximately two inches away from the door and parallel to it. The handle is usually halfway down the door. Check to see if the handle has a movable centerpiece that you can turn left and right and look for a keyhole near the handle. No centerpiece or the keyhole: Great! Move to the next step
There is a centerpiece or keyhole?
- Centerpiece – turn the centerpiece to the left and follow the next steps. If this
does not work, turn the centerpiece right and follow the next steps.
- There’s a keyhole? – You will need to find the key to this door. Not every key
will work. Follow the next steps and if the door does not open, ask the owner of
the door if they have a key. Put the key into the hole and turn it until you hear a
click, follow the next steps. If nothing happened, turn the key the other way until
you hear a click then proceed to the next steps.
Grip the handle or knob and rotate it around 90 degrees either clockwise, or anti-clockwise. Maintain the grip and either push or pull through your grip. If you pull and nothing happens, then you will need to push. After you have opened the door enough for you to walk through it, you can let go and walk through to the next area.
Congratulations! You are now an expert at opening doors!
