So our conservatory door wont lock and its going to be hard to get a locksmith out to have a look, there are no codes or anything on the locking mechanism its self, ive tried using the google image search and i couldnt find anything. Any help is really appreciated. Thanks
Thank you all so much for you help – we’ve managed to order a replacement now.
I removed this lock from an internal door in our house; we’ve never had a key for it but I’d like to be able to lock this door. Am I best off getting a locksmith to cut a new key for the door or just searching for a replacement lock of a matching size online? I’ve struggled to find anything matching the size (I’m in the UK), but it may be that I’m not looking in the right place, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. In particular, the top of the keyhole is slightly offset from the spindle hole, which seems to be unusual.
My front door handle was loose and while trying to tighten I realized the inside screws were loose. I ended up taking off the entire thing and re-tightening (thanks YouTube for the diy) but have managed to strip the hex screw that tightens the handle. Can I buy a replacement of just the insert shown here? If so, what is it called and where?
Hello. I have two rekeyable locks with the Abus Plus core. I’d like to rekey one of them so that they are keyed alike. My local locksmith doesn’t work on the disc detainer locks. Do you know of any resources where I could order the correct discs, and do it myself? If not, maybe I should just file additional gates in the original discs?
