Matty reports on his progress defeating the doorknob lock on his room.

This conventional doorknob lock effectively kept us in until May, 2000 when I was 3 years 8 months old. Then I figured out how to pull the soft white plastic cover right out of the two clamping bracket pieces that hold it.
The next step up was just the 4 longitudinal yellow ribbons you see here. But I defeated it because the ribbons could be pulled to the side, letting me repeat my previous strategy above of pulling the cover apart.
Next, Dad added the 4 latitudinal purple ribbons connecting the 4 yellow ribbons. This one held me for a month, until I was able to twist it enough to destroy the whole cover.
Next, Dad started with a brand new cover and put packaging tape and black tape around it in many layers. I tried pulling the tape off once, but it was too hard (and Daddy repaired the damage behind my back).
It was five long months before I cracked it (Feb 2001, age 4 yr, 5 mo). I demonstrated the opening technique for Daddy, as shown here. At this point Daddy threw up his hands and removed the door lock, and now I have the run of the house! Even Bridget learned how to open the one remaining door lock after a few more weeks, using my patented two-hand method.
