Deadbolt hole drilled too deep? : Locksmith


I took measurements and it all checks out, thank you! I lost my key and had a locksmith come in to repin the lock, and he also went ahead and made adjustments to the deadbolt. For a min I thought he unnecessarily put a hole in my house, but good to know I got a more secure working deadbolt out of it too! The locks were always a bit sticky, and I swear a couple times after locking I came back to an open door. I thought it was so strange, but that explains it.

Removing cylinders from security door after it has been drilled? : Locksmith


I bought my new townhouse “as-is” from the bank after a foreclosure. Apparently they drilled the lock on the security door during the eviction process, which you can see here: http://imgur.com/gallery/6wY3113

I removed the set screws ( http://imgur.com/gallery/wBoeHfj ) and learned from youtube that the next thing to do is insert a key and use that to unscrew the cylinders.

Obviously I do not have that option for the exterior cylinder, and my attempt to unscrew the interior cylinder failed, it wouldn’t budge. I assume this is due to age/weathering, but could it be due to the damage?

Any advice on how to remove the drilled cylinder would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
