Hey everyone. I figured I needed to speak with the experts, and in these crazy times I can’t just walk in to my local shop, so here goes…
My house was built in 1933. We have been here for 5 years. We did not receive a key to the front door, and we barely use it as the side door is on the driveway. I believe the locks are original, and it says Schlage on the cylinder. Today, the bolt started sticking all the way in. It took quite some time to get it out to where I could even secure the door. I have attached a few pics.
My question is two fold: A. Does anyone have information on the lock or know where I could find some info? So far my searches in the Google machine are fruitless. B. Is it worth it to take it all apart, clean it and lubricate it to get it working again, or should I just plan on replacing it (which will probably require taking the door off, sanding and painting as the new setup most assuredly won’t match up)?
I appreciate your help on advance.
