Hi,
I have a 100mm euro cylinder lock on my front door and the key is stuck and will not turn in any direction. Any suggestions on how to turn the key so I can remove and replace the cylinder?

Try gently with a set of pliers.

squirt WD40 in from the other side, remove handles, push another key in from the other side to try & dislodge it?

i have been repairing all dg for 25 years, wd40 to start basically wash the lock out put plenty of tissue on the floor under the door, gently wiggle and pull the key until it frees(the pins in the lock have jammed the key, years of atmospheric dirt) when key is free carry on washing out the key barrel, lots of black gunk will come out. if all this fails .....

I guess it wont be long before the mods are editing/deleting other posts on this topic icon_eek.gif

This topic is treading on dodgy ground when it comes to advice on how to get a lock open(can you see where im going with this?)

Exactly, at least the op says there is a key stuck in the lock.

Can you vouch for the OP - do you know him/her ?

With regard to security - some advice is given far too freely, without consideration of the OP's motive. Granted, the information is often available via other sources on the web - but that doesn't make it ok to post here.

Whit Wooo, get you!
The OP has asked how to get a key that is stuck in the lock out, not how to remove the lock. Or break the door down without being heard.
Why quote me when I am agreeing about the security issue's with locks on forums?

With all the stuff in the press recently about the problems with euro's i do not think they need to be told by us how to snap a euro

However, we generally do not like to see advice here, on how to break in to houses, or commit certain other acts, so some posts may be edited or removed.

Exactly like outlaw has just posted, and i was not telling them how to break in(just as well smash the window) i was telling them how to take the euro out, ........ you still have to turn the locking mech so it opens so unless you know what you are doing it is not really that quick and easy imo

This is quite a common problem with euro cylinders, mole gip the key, then gently pull out wards, theshould then come out.

If the key will move, but wont come out, take the lock out, then remove the key, the lock then will have o be picked from both sides halfway around, then move the central cam to the bottom, you can then put your key in ten turn back to normal, do this on both sides, hen re insert the lock, problem solved.
