What is a Godrej door lock

Godrej is one of the leading manufacturers of door locks in India and they offer a range of security and convenience solutions. Their locks range from low-security models designed for basic home usage, to higher-security models that feature additional locking mechanisms such as deadbolts and combination locks. Godrej locks are generally reliable and provide a good level of security but, like any lock, can become stuck or malfunction if not properly maintained. In the event that you do need to open a Godrej door lock without a key, there are several steps you can take to safely reenter your home without damaging the lock or compromising your security.


Opening a Godrej door lock without a key may seem like a daunting task, however, it is actually quite simple. Before attempting to open the door without a key, it is important to make sure that you have the right tools and supplies. These include a paperclip, safety pins, and a spindle rod. Additionally, it helps to have a basic understanding of how a Godrej door lock works in order to successfully open the lock.

What you need

It is possible to open a Godrej door lock without a key. However, before attempting to do so, you’ll need the right tools and materials at your disposal. You will also need to carefully assess the specific lock that you’re dealing with, as it can impact what supplies are necessary.

Therefore, before proceeding with attempting to open a Godrej door lock without a key, take inventory of the following items:
-A hose clamp or pair of vise grips (to grip the shank of the lock)
-A tension wrench (to manipulate the pins within the lock)
-Lock picking tools (such as picks or rakes)
-Lubricating oil (to prevent binding when manipulating pins inside cylinder)
-Gloves for safety purposes.

Additionally, depending on which type of Godrej door lock you have, additional supplies may be needed. For instance, if you have a lever handle deadbolt – which uses levers rather than cylinders – then additional screwdrivers and allen keys may be necessary for taking apart the handle assembly or removing fasteners from other parts of its construction.

Steps to Open a Godrej Door Lock

Opening a Godrej door lock without a key can be accomplished by accessing the lock’s mechanism with a tool like a paper clip or a small wrench. This process will require some patience and a steady hand, so make sure to approach this task with caution. In this article, we’ll explain the steps to opening a Godrej door lock without a key.

Using a credit card

Using a credit card to open the lock is probably one of the easiest methods. This technique works best if you have a thin card, such as a library card, or an expired credit or debit card. It also works best on certain models of Godrej locks that are known to have a vulnerable mechanism. To use this technique:

1. Wedge your thin piece of plastic into the edge of the door between the door frame and the door itself. If you don’t have quite the right size, you may need to use a shim like an ice pick or even a wire hanger to increase the space enough for your plastic wedge.

2. Slide your plastic wedge in as far as it will go and push down on it while pushing gently outward on the door itself while placing your hand against the lock side of it inwardly ( towards yourself )Put pressure against both sides..

3. With your other hand, put pressure against both sides of the doorknob as if you were trying to turn it inwards ( towards yourself). Doing this will separate any components that are connected inside, and may cause them to move apart enough for you to open up the door lock without needing a key!

Using a screwdriver

Opening a Godrej door lock without a key is surprisingly straightforward and with the right tools, quite easy to do. While it’s not recommended that you use this method on high priority doors or locks, it is possible if you know what you are doing. Here are the steps necessary to open a Godrej door lock using a screwdriver:

1. Locate the screws along one side of the lock. Unscrew them and take them out carefully.
2. Place the mouth of a flathead screwdriver into one side of the keyhole, pushing in until it meets resistance. Turn in either direction until both sides move away from one another slightly.
3. Slide a flathead screwdriver in between the two halves of the keyhole and turn firmly in either direction until some resistance is felt (typically clockwise).
4. With your other hand, place it beside your thumb holding the flathead screwdriver and slide outward slowly until you hear an audible click sound (this should be accompanied by leverage to open).
5. Open your door and remove all components from inside as necessary for future use should you need to close again safely and securely later on!

Using a bobby pin

One way to open a Godrej door lock without a key is to use a bobby pin. This method can be tricky and will likely require two people so you can use one hand to manipulate the bobby pin and the other hand to shift the knob around.

You will need two bobby pins, one bent the traditional “L” shape, and bend the second pin in an upside-down “J” shape. Straighten out any of the bends in each bobby pin if it is too tightly formed, as this could hinder your progress. It may also be helpful to file down any jagged edges on the end of the pins since sharp points can expand or contract too quickly with temperature changes.

Start by inserting both of the pins into each side of the keyhole on your Godrej door lock at a 45-degree angle. Then, very slowly push both pins downward simultaneously while trying not to shift either one out of place too much in relation to each other or to their original angle in relation to keyhole. As you press down, pay attention for any point where there is extra resistance that could indicate when it gets close enough for you turn it like a key would have done originally. If it works properly and there is no damage done to either one of your pins they should still remain lined up with each other precisely in relationship to keyhole when combined effort has opened the lock . If however, uneven pressure was applied during opening process then re-aligning them correctly where metal meets metal for locked position once will help proper locking again afterward

Tips to Keep Your Lock Secure

Godrej locks are designed for maximum security, but there are still ways to open them without the key. This article will cover various tips you can use to keep your Godrej door lock secure, so you don’t have to worry about someone being able to open it without the key. We’ll start with what to do if you do find yourself needing to open the lock without the key.

Change the locks regularly

One of the best ways to ensure your security is to regularly change your lock. With newer models of door locks, like Godrej locks, it is easy and affordable to purchase a new lock and switch out your old locking system. With older models of locks or especially outdated ones, it might be necessary to hire a professional locksmith who can not only detect weaknesses in your current locks but also recommend newer and more secure models. Changing your lock on a regular basis ensures that any weaknesses that have developed over time can be addressed as soon as possible. Also, if any keys have been lost or stolen it is important to replace the existing lock before anyone else manages to use them on your property.

Reinforce the door frame

If your existing door frame is weakened due to weathering, regular use or wear and tear, you can reinforce it to make it sturdier. This will prevent an intruder from being able to leverage the frame and gain access if they are using a crowbar or other tool. To reinforce the doorframe, install additional metal supports on the existing frame and fill in any cracked surfaces with wood epoxy putty. This will prevent any further deterioration and make your lock more secure against forced entry.

Install a security system

Installing a security system for your home or business is one of the most important tips to keep your lock secure. Security systems can be used to protect your property from would-be intruders. These systems can be connected directly to the alarm company and can alert authorities if there are signs of unauthorized access or other activity. They also have features that allow you to control the lock from a web browser or smartphone app. The best way to monitor who is coming and going from a locked door is with a security system that tracks when a door is opened, closed, and locked. Not only will it help protect your property, but it will also ensure that only authorized individuals are able to gain entry into certain areas when needed.


The Godrej locking system is designed to be durable, reliable and secure. Depending on the type of door lock being opened, there are a few methods that may be successful in opening it without a key. This includes using physical force by either prying or drilling the lock open, using lockpicks or a bump key, creating a makeshift key from an everyday implement such as a paper clip, shimmy picking, or using a bump hammer.

It is recommended that before attempting any of these methods you should acquire valid permission from the building management or owner to alter the locking unit. It is also important to be aware that some of these methods may cause irreparable damage to the locking system and if improperly used can also cause injury to yourself. If all else fails, professional locksmiths can help with unlocking your door lock safely and quickly.
