Fetch your backup which for you will have stored at a different
venue .-)

Call the locksmith to open the lock; sometimes locksmiths are not able
to do that and will use brute force to open the door.  Then you have to
install a new lock.

With a private key you need to do the same - unfortunately, or better,
fortunately, you also need to build an entire new house and not just a
new lock.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
