Anyone know how to pick this type of lock? Only tutorials I can find are for regular locks. Im studying abroad in italy and my dorm room has a staircase leading up to a locked empty room that I really want to open up so me and my room mate can have seperate rooms.
Well, first you need to lie on your side.
Then you need a set of "curtain lock" picks.
They're annoyingly expensive. Apparently once you have the tool it's exactly the same as SPPing a tumbler lock.
There are plenty of videos on YouTube.
Here are the options in Russian.
Has it occurred to you that it's locked for a reason, it's not your property, you're just living there, and that it's not your business to be breaking into parts of the place that you're specifically locked out of? How about you ask the management if you can go in there, so they can tell you "no, that's off limits to you" and you can forget about this? Or do you want to get thrown out of the place? Use your head, OP.
Has it ever occurred to you that you are a huge pussy who probably never breaks the rules? Im paying 12k for a semester here and they put me in a cramped room with another person and refuse to let me live in the unoccupied room connected to mine. The reason they wont let me use it is because that room was supposed to be for the third person living with us, but that third person decided last minute to room in the other dorms so now we literally have an empty room and we aren't able to use it because they are too stubborn. So get the fuck out of here assuming im trying to be an asshole and break into rooms just because I can.
You're an idiot.
It's a mortice lock; mortice locks are called mortice locks because they're inserted into a mortice cut into the side of the door.
The thing you see with the screws is just decorative.
