If you have a mortise lock with cross cylinder mechanism, take a drill with a drill 3-5 mm and make a hole just above the keyhole, then insert into the drilled hole a screwdriver, pry up the stopper and move the hook bolt.
In order to drill a larva of the lock cylinder with pin tumbler mechanism, aim the drill bit drills into the center of the cylinder (the rotation core), then drill through. If the castle no armor, then the process goes smoothly. To open the mechanism, slide inside the keyhole and turn the wire. If the lock does not open, drill out another hole in the top of the keyhole, in this case, the lock can be opened is a simple flat head screwdriver.
If the castle is protected by bronenakladki, a conventional drill is likely to break. Drill the larva of the castle is possible only with the help of special carbide drills, which will cost you dearly. Evaluate your capabilities, perhaps it would be cheaper to call the master.
To drill slip lever lock, look where the strut to the tip of the bolt (usually a little above the center of the keyhole). Try to get to this place, then drill out the rack and hook open the lock through a keyhole. You can also use a similar key or the blank key. Note that this method is suitable only for a cheap cylinder lock without additional protection.
To better understand where to drill, look at the key. The teeth and recesses of different diameters that you see on it, intended for metal 'secrets' inside of the castle, which, in turn, are violated by springs. Most of these springs are located along the axis of the larva at the bottom, try to get a drill in it's place and then "secrets" can turn even a hairpin or wire.

Advice 3: How to open an English castle
There are situations when you forgot your house keys, slammed the door, leaving you in the stairwell without a key or the lock is jammed. And it seems that such a situation has only two choices – to wait or relatives to call emergency services to those hacked, or, in extreme cases, broke the lock, allowing you to come into the apartment. However, there is a third way. It is the opening of the lock by yourself. For example, on your door cylinder set (English) castle.
These locks have a low resistance to a violent mechanical impact. The lock cylinder just enough to kick, pull or drill. Although English castles over time have changed, preventing the drilling or knocking out cylinder – manufacturers have started to equip their armored lining, durable pins and balls made of hardened steel. So if your door is quite old lock, drill out or knock it by asking the neighbors need tools. At the same time and lock replace more reliable.
But that's not all. You can also use for opening cylinder lock folder. It is, in fact, a detail, reminiscent in appearance of the blank key, which is attached directly to a special handle-lever. Billet roughly hammer into the cylinder, then crank a lever together with the whole mechanism.
It is worth to mention that this method does not always help. If your model of the castle is relatively new, the shank may be made of any brittle material. By the way, the shank is the part of the English castle, which is fastened on the cylinder and leads the Executive mechanism of the lock in action. In this case, the mechanism with original key works smoothly and with a certain effort, while after applying the folding man shank is broken, which prevents further cracking. Therefore, in this scenario, the lock did not open. However, if such a lock is needed to open not you and the burglar to, consider yourself lucky – of course, have to call rescuers, so they opened the door, and then replace the lock, but your precious possessions will remain intact.

By the way, recently in the Internet there are many sites that tells about the technique of "bumping". In addition, some online stores sell the tools to bumping, which is for employees of companies that spetsializiruyutsya on emergency lockpicking.
Again, the bumping works mainly on a fairly simple cylinder locks with spring-loaded pins, arranged in one row. Yes, and it happens not very often, even in the case of the same castle. If the cylinder pins are not spring-loaded or positioned not in one but in several rows, the use of this method the desired effect will not have.
If none of these methods did not help you, do not despair and do not attempt to open the lock by using a "cinematic" way type pouring lock acid or freezing with liquid nitrogen. These exotic ways look beautiful only on the silver screen, but in reality it is not so. Better trust the experts.
