I get locked in often with full doors

I often get locked in my jeep or locked out. Seems when I close the door a little hard it locks itself. And I really have to push hard into the lock rocker. It moves super freely but I really have to push it to make it work

Since I don't have a key how can I disable it?

I know there is a thread on the forum where a member had a similar issue, found that the door and lock linkages were bent which caused this issue. The post is very picture rich, and walks through everything step by step. I can't find it in my bookmarks.

Go to a locksmith and get a key made.
