How to open a SIM card tray when an ejector tool isn't around (the MacGyver way)
Despite being just a fictional character from a TV show, MacGyver was a hero to many kids who grew up during the late '80s and the early '90s. In every episode, he would save the day using nothing but stuff he found lying around. Remember that time when he defused a bomb using a paper clip? Yeah, that's the kind of MacGyverisms we're talking about.

In real life, a paper clip won't be of much use in such a scenario, but it may come in handy for more tasks than just attaching two pieces of paper together. For example, it can be used for ejecting the SIM card tray of a modern smartphone. But it isn't the only "tool" fit for the job. Here's a list of items that can be used for ejecting a smartphone SIM card tray. These can be useful for those times when the SIM card ejector tool that came with your smartphone isn't around. The best thing about these items is that many of them can probably be found around your home or office. Take a look at what they are and if you can think of a tool that should have been on the list, let us know in the comments!

Note: If you ever resort to opening a SIM card tray using any of the tools listed here, make sure you do it with caution. Use your common sense and don't hurt yourself!
