Ilove learning about new life hacks, especially

useful when wanting to add a little extra security to a motel room, public
restroom (which often have broken locks), or on any interior or exterior door.
All you need to assemble this DIY project is a dinner fork with
two-inch prongs, a vice, and a saw. The handle of the fork should be able
to fit in between the prongs of the fork. Essentially, you’re just bending
the fork, and in a few minutes you have an amazingly simple door
lock. This man is a genius!
The great thing is the fork lock pretty much works on just about
every type of door. So once you’ve made yourself one, you’ll never have to make
