Changing lock body for a door, in an industrial building. The customer told us that he was not able to lock and unlock the door.
Upon arrival, we found that the door latch could not retract when we tried locking and unlocking the door. The latch was extended out, being stuck in the locked position. This was strange to us, for two reasons. Firstly, the lock body was relatively new. Secondly, the door was made of metal, which is a very solid door material. So we decided to remove the lock body for further examination.
What we discovered was that the bottom of the lock body had split open, as seen in panel 3. Thus, the mystery of the damaged lock body was finally solved.
We immediately changed it to a new lock body, which rectified the locking issue.
We also replace cylinder locks, and do main door lock installations as part of our locksmith services. If you enjoyed this post, do like and follow our Youtube and Facebook pages for more useful tips and fresh updates!
