Help me pick a lock!

This isn't necessarily an automobile-related question, but I figure there might be some lock pickers among the car people out there...

I'm staying at my buddy's place in Singapore for eight days. I just got here but the spare bedroom is locked! We've been trying to pick it, but no luck. Can anyone help? He lives right off the Botanic Gardens MRT stop.

Why is the room locked? Because the landlady recently decided she didn't want my friends using it as a guestroom. My buddy picked it once before, but he locked it up again, and we haven't been able to make it happen a second time.

Part of the reason I came to Singapore this week was so I could get some writing done, and I knew my buddy had a spare room with a desk I could isolate myself in. If I'm crashing on the couch in the living room, that becomes a lot harder.

Please help!

Re: Help me pick a lock!

It's a knob lock right?

I've picked a normal cheapo padlock before, but I felt it was more of a lucky thing. Do you have the proper pick of the various shapes or are you just using a paperclip. I found that determining the direction to open where you apply pressure on the torque-piece thing was the main problem, one direction has more free play than the other. Other than that it was just pure luck and determination. lol.

Is there a shield that prevents a card or something thin from sliding in?

Re: Help me pick a lock!

It's a knob lock. Yeah, I'm just using a paperclip. We tried the credit card, but the damn thing is too tight and it didn't work. Thanks anyway for the tip. I guess I should keep at it, huh?

If anyone out there can help out, please let me know!
