    Hi,

    I got my internal porch door which I 'm unable to find the key anymore. The door is already unlocked but the cylinder won't come out as usually the pin inside keeps it stuck.

    On youtube, a guy snaps it on both sides but to be honest I'm worried to apply a lot of force as I will be damaging the door.

    is there any other method without spending a fortune on a locksmith to get a simple cylinder replaced?

    Thanks

  9. Bit confused, it's unlocked, right, so you need to get the retaining screw that holds it in? correct?

  13. So? it's unlocked? Though I suppose it may well be in the unlocked, but jammed position.
