Force empty trash for Mac

"Emptying trash on Mac is quite troublesome at times, because some files are locked.
Is there an easy way to force empty without going to the terminal typing the rm command?"

"Oh, I found a very easy way to do this.

Hold down the Option key and click on the trash bin
Release the click (still have option key pressed)
Click on ""Empty Trash"" (still have option key pressed)
Done.

Hm.. hidden feature of Mac.
