50, most locks that I've seen in public bathrooms are barely secured in the little metal notch. A slammed door, especially when all the stalls are connected, could certainly cause that little metal bar to jump out of place.

Most likely, the slamming of the adjacent door caused OPs door to jump off the lock. Most stall locks are pretty flimsy unless you're in a city where the public restrooms have pay locks.

26- wait... There are cities where you have to pay to lock the stall door? Or do you mean those pay to use the restroom places? - I have never heard of the first option!

@36,40 Cities where you have to pay to enter the rest room stall, so the doors unlock by inserting a coin. They have good locks cause they also want to keep homeless people from using the stall as a living space.

41 - thanks for the explanation :) I thought you mean there were places you could use the restroom for free but had to pay for the privacy!!!

#26 There are also cities such as San Francisco that have a better model with free restrooms that lock. The only catch is that there's a time limit (of 30 minutes or one hour I think), probably to keep homeless people from camping out in them (though I really don't know what happens after the time expires!).
