You don't need a locksmith to get a door open without damaging it. The use of locksmiths is a joke because I have never met a lock that I could not
get in on a foreclosed home. If you look at how a door knob lock is designed it i easily broken into.
My preferred method is drilling out the screws holding the lock in place...... very simple, no mess... the lock falls out and turn the guts with a
flathead crew driver..... drill at 3 and 9 o'clock ...... a few makes have screw holes at 6-12 o'clock but not many
I would also add that deadbolts are designed the sames way ....... and drilled out the same way.
Frankly most locks can be defeated with a large pair of channel locks or pipe wrench..... I do not pry doors open because it damages the door
