WATCH: This Is A Regular Fork, But This DIY Trick Could Secure Your Home In An Emergency

Computerized locking gadgets and mechanisms controlled via tablets and smartphones have become increasingly popular. While home security has become highly evolved in the past decade, so has the ways for criminals to slide past these systems. Although high-tech solutions may seem safer than traditional methods, this may not be entirely accurate.

Phil Crockett, a YouTube do-it-yourself guru, took a step back and created a manual gadget that will secure any home. Using just a fork, he managed to make a secure and reliable makeshift lock.

His creation is very useful when wanting to add security in public places that may have broken locks such as motel rooms, public restrooms and dressing rooms.
