    Surely if you stick a flat edge screw driver where the catch meets the frame, the door should open after abit of struggle? Especially from inside the house, this should be possible with a normal yale lock.

    Haha yep had to happen to me - stupid thing is we had an inspection this morning the door was fine then - at least Im stuck in my house rather than just my room Delivery guy thought it was all a bit of a laugh, the OH just text me saying he'll come back from work now to free me, but there isnt really much point haha - if there's a fire ill just run into my back garden and run down the lane. Shame I cant get down the side of my house otherwise Id just try and open the front door myself, but its actually a really long walk from the back to the front (I know - I once locked myself out the front with the backdoor left open - looked a right fool marching down the road in my slippers - whilst praying no one robbed me)
