AnswerUnlock it with the key.

--------

If you're asking about the "latch" which holds the door shut (visible when door is open), it (the latch) may be in the CLOSED position. (When in the OPEN position, it resembles a "U" on its side.)

When you close the door under normal circumstances, an internal "tooth" snaps down, closing the "U" into an "O," grasping the stationary peg in the door frame, thus holding the door in its closed position.

I have "opened" a latch closed in this "O" position by inserting a short, sturdy screwdriver (in lieu of the door frame's "peg" ) and PULLING INWARD while operating the EXTERNAL DOOR HANDLE and pulling OUTWARD. (The door must be unlocked for this to work.)

--------

Next time - don't play with the latch of an open door. :-)
