When you lock your hotel door, you assume you're safe and your stuff is safe. Don't be so sure: Thieves have invented a small, simple device that can unlock hotel doors at some of the most popular chains. Some hotels have known about this security problem for months -- so why hasn't it been fixed?

Jim Stickley is a security expert who worked with us on this report. Using a homemade gadget to pop electronic doors, he was able to break into a hotel room in seconds -- no kicking the door, no fancy tools.

We booked hotel rooms in New Jersey where he did it again and again -- at a Hyatt, a Ramada, a Doubletree Hilton. This security flaw is so alarming, even hotel managers are stunned. "That's absolutely insane," one said when we showed him.

The device is so small, thieves can hide it in a magic marker. And criminals are learning how to make it watching videos posted online.
"Do you have to be a computer whiz to build one of these?" we asked Stickley.
"No, you could be a village idiot," he said. "Just go online and you can find step-by-step instructions and be done in a half hour."
All thieves have to do is plug it in, and it acts like a master key, even bypassing the deadbolt, giving criminals access while you sleep.
What have you done?
