look at you tube videos
remove lock
go to screwfix, buy same length lock
buy a anti bump decent one
leave someone at house.
fit lock
#3
very easy if you have the keys just insert key and remove screw and wiggle key and out they pop.
#4
Dead dead easy . Unscrew , slide out , slide new one in , screw back up . Takes five minutes . You can get anti snap for around £60 . Well worth it for the peace of mind
#5
As the others above say, it's super easy, just make sure you get the correct length one.
#6
The problem is is that the locks are all different lengths and you need to know the size before you buy so make sure u measure

Buy a thumb turn for for exit in an emergency ,

recommend thumb turn not only for emergency exit but also to save scrambling for keys when someone's at the door

also makes it very easy for a burglar to get everything out of your house if they have broke in through a window.

Thats the kind of stupid thing my dad says when he's trying to be clever. So what if it helps a burglar?

All new houses have thumb turn locks as part of pas 24
But then all the windows are pas 24 tested as well.

recommend thumb turn not only for emergency exit but also to save scrambling for keys when someone's at the door
Or you could just leave a key in the other side when your in.
Makes lock picking, bumping or snap guns a lot harder as they have to force it out of the way before they can do anything.

Better tell all the car manufacturers that fitting deadlocking is a stupid idea then.
