This Is How You Can Lock Any Door With A Dining Fork

Fork Lock

Nothing can be compared to traveling owing to the fact that this hobby is perhaps the most rewarding experience. Why? Well, because you get to live other cultures and observe them, you can see the world and in the wake of all this, create some amazing memories that will bring a smile to your face when you look back upon them. This is the bright side of the picture though, the other often not talked about side is the fear that follows with the traveling.

Which fear are we talking about? It is a huge world out there and you need to be prepared for it. Staying safe should be our top most priority. Today we’ll show you how to achieve that while enjoying traveling. The video below will show you how to make use of a fork to impart security to a door that doesn’t have a lock. Check it out and let us know what you think about it.

    A 25 cent fork will unbend easily of someone tries to open the door with excessive force.

    This is so useful! I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve been travelling around the world backpacking, staying in rooms in dodgy areas with no locks, carrying with me my marker pen, tapered fork, file (optional), big hammer, hacksaw and industrial vice, yet found myself unaccountably worried at the prospect of someone coming into my room. Now I can use all those easily portable tools to fashion the kind of ‘lock’ that will stop someone who carefully opens doors (rather than kicks them for instance, cos they’d defeat this ‘lock’ in seconds, but which burglars ever use force to get through locked doors?). And there was me thinking that, in a bind, I might just use, I don’t know, a wedge. Or perhaps just pay a bit extra for a room with a lock. What a chump I’ve been! Thanks so much wonderful engineering!
