    Hi hoping you can help me please. I want to change my door lock barrel to measure it and order an anti snap one. I undid the screw ok but it wonít budge ! Any ideas please ? I have a photo but I canít see how to upload it on here 🤔 itís the sort of door that if you bring the handle up thereís multiple locking down the edge and you then turn the key to lock . Thank you 🙏

    Have you angled the key? Leave the key in the lock and turn it slightly and it should pull out.

    If its been in a long time give it a light tap towards you as you pull the key to free it up.

    The key needs to be in the 1 o'clock position
    I'm only here while I wait for Corrie to start.
