Pretty much the same thing as holding the lock up. But give it a try!!
Coat hangers are easy... make sure you have a little hook in one end and drop it down between the door and the window your aiming for the rod, or mechinsim that releases the latch (obviously). To get a better idea, you may want to take the door skin off the other door and check out the where the mechanism sits and where all the rods run, this way you can get a mental picture of where to stick the coat hanger. Play with the rods to work out which one does what.
Hope this helps a little.
