When owning a home one type of lever set you may have in your home is a privacy lever. In a privacy lever set, the main feature is that the door can only be locked from the inside. Sometimes a kid might get locked in or someone may accidentally lock the door behind them. It's really easy to unlock it in an emergency.
Before unlocking a privacy door, make sure the person inside is aware you are entering or that no one is inside the room.
Step 1 Locate a device to unlock the lever.
To unlock your lever set you will need to find a small pin or paper clip. Some lever sets will come with a special tool, although any of these devices should work.
Step 2 Locate the small hole on the front of your lever set.
Step 3 Take your small pin or paper clip and insert into small hole.
Step 4 Feel the back of the locking mechanism & push in to unlock the door.
