Which side are the hinges on? If on the accessible side remove the
pin (from the top) from each hinge and pull the door off. (Please
don't tell me you left the toolbox in the bedroom!!)
Not sure what the 1/8th" hole on the side of the door knob is. On the
face, in the center frequently allows for a small tool (essentially a
skinny flat-blade screwdriver) to be inserted and twisted to disengane
the lock. <blink!> The hole on the side may allow removal of the
knob so you can get to the latch mechanism.
