Replacement lock for garage door with no keys

Postby cliver » Fri Nov 10, 2023 5:21 pm

Hi all, Mother in law is shortly moving into a new bungalow. The garage door is a pretty standard up and over type as in the attached pictures. There are no keys for it so I want to replace the lock for her.
Ideally I would like to be able to open/close/lock/unlock from inside and outside. Does a replacement that allows inside and outside operation exist? Can anyone suggest a solution?
I did find this online
Would it fit our garage door?
Any advice appreciated.

Hi cliver,
Go to one of the garage door spares sites, they will be able to supply you a handle which is a direct replacement.
