Kirk shoots the lock

A lock was a device used to secure the door of a room. Someone who was skilled at unlocking them was called a lockpick.

In 1986, a time traveling James T. Kirk shot the lock on the Mercy Hospital's operating room with his phaser to keep the doctors from interfering with Leonard McCoy's treatment of Pavel Chekov's middle meningeal artery. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

Also that year, Em/3/Green noted that the locks on the Skorr temple had timed-triggers. (TAS: "The Jihad")
