You’ve done it again. You forgot to lock your door, and now you’re rushing back home before someone breaks in.
But, what’s this? You don’t have a key! Do not worry!
There is a way to secure your home with some simple items found in any household: an old sock, for example.
All you need to do is stuff the sock as tightly as possible into the hole where the doorknob should be and twist it around until it fills up all of space inside. (If there are gaps between the edges of the doorframe and your doorstop, use something like tape or a rubber band to seal them.) Your front door will now be locked from both sides- meaning no one can.
How to Lock a Door with a Sock
Put the sock on your hand and wrap it around the doorknob, making sure to seal any gaps with tape or a rubber band. The sock should be tightly wound around the knob in order to prevent intruders from opening it.

Use the sock to push the door shut with a shoe or something similar wedged in between the door and frame in order to prevent it from being pulled open.
In conclusion lock you door with sock is a good decision in order to prevent intruders entering your house.
