Hi, we've bought and installed today a set of 6ft. French Doors from Wickes.
All was going well until the door decided it wasn't going to lock, and during the course of adjusting hinges and testing for locking/unlocking whilst on the outside of the doors with them closed I heard a ping and half of the lock barrel came out along with half a dozen or so small pins when I pulled the key out of the lock.
Now the door is firmly closed with the indoors side of the lock barrel intact and not onlocking at all!
I know I can get a replacement barrel from Wickes and am not worried about that, it's just a case of how on Earth am I going to get the door unlocked to open it and remove the retaining screw which will allow me to get the other half of the barrel out.
