    Hello,

    I am trying to change the lock in a wooden side door in my house. We don't have a key for this particular door, so I just want to change the lock so we can use it.

    The door is currently locked. I have removed the inner door handle but am unsure of what to do next?

    Please could you someone help? I've put a couple of photos below. One indoors and one outside.

    Thanks.

    Door opens out wards and the lock is scrap anyway so use an angle grinder with a thin metal cutting blade to cut through the nibs. Sometimes it is also possible to force the frame apart so that the door opens but cutting is less destructive .
