Youtube video  

How to unlatch a door chain from outside  

This video was brought to my attention by a colleague.  It’s fun to watch, but don’t worry yourself! Door chains and limiters are not designed as locks, but as control mechanisms for when you are actually standing at the door.  Consequently they are unlikely to be successful.
