door lock problems PLEASE HELP

Banned
Hello

I have a Union lock. The garden door and front door are both double glazed. I was locking the garden door double glazed. It locked I was turning to take the key and it got stuck. I started to push force on it and twist and it snapped.
And abit of the key less then 1CM is stuck in the door and u can see it but its locked. How do I get the key out and how do I open the lock door? I Have tried opening it from both sides.

Its a Union lock


If I drill it through will it open bearing in mind its a double glazed door!

Thanks a lot of anyone for helping

Get a locksmith out....easiest option. :thumbsup:

You could drill it, But then you'd need to buy a new barrel!

Have you got another key for that door?

have you tried grabbing whats left of the key with pliers and yanking it out?

Yes easiest but not the cheapest

Can you push a paper clip or such like through from other side?

just unscrew the handle on the inside and remove cover and barrel lock should slide out. The lock will not be double glazed so drilling through wont be a problem either ;-)

push the remainder of the key back into it from the same side it snapped and try to unlock it that way

you could try to rattle the lock at the same time so it may free up

How long have you had your double glazing?

Some firms will come out and fit you a new lock, depending upon how long you've had it.

Usually 2/3 years is your maximum. Just tell them you've always had problems with it, which you've lived with, but this time it snapped.

Have had it for 8 years +


Well...............
Woke up 8AM and started ti drill the lock. Took me until 11AM god such strong metal went through 4 drill bits.

Now I have just fitted a new cylinder and its all god.

Cost me £17 inc dril bits

Locksmith charges
as follows
£60 call out fee inc half an hour labour
then £25 labour there on
AND another £25 for a lock
estimated £150 they said

And i done it all for £17

Now thats MONEY SAVING!

what type of drill bits did you use to go through 4!!

I did it before and as long as you pull the dill bit out every couple of seconds to get rid of the shavings (and cool the drill bit down!) its ok.
