It’s embarrassing at this point. Thankfully, though, there’s always been a spare key close by. Then again, if I’m ever in a pinch without one, I could probably fall back on a simple paper clip.

Don’t believe me? Just take a look at all the locks you can pick with this common office supply! You’ll be a regular MacGyver in no time!

Latch doors are simple to open with a clip. Straighten it out, put it through the crack and move it upwards.

Well, there you have it…you can break into just about anything with a paper clip. No lock-picking kit needed! While I may carry one of these handy items with me from now on, this knowledge also makes me feel just a little unsafe…
