Third world adaptively engineered door lock

Here is my third world adaptively engineered rear door lock.

It has a high tech, bleeding edge opening system though: insert a tube under the door gasket and squirt liquid nitrogen on the soda bottle. That causes the air in the bottle to condense, and the bottle collapses, releasing the wooden wedges.

eric...simple yet effective!

Yeah, I purchased a locking unit from a scrap yard (has all the pieced plus keys) and think that would work for my backdoor. Tapping on it yesterday I gather it isn't super thick steel. I've no plans to replace the folding door so I know the back one needs it. Anyone do this yet?

I have some ideas but I'd like to hear what others have done.
