Yale Lock and Catch not Fully Retracting Help

Postby pete99 » Tue Nov 20, 2018 4:32 pm


The catch on my Yale door lock back door has stopped fully retracting into the lock when the handle is fully depressed. Which prevents the door from opening. If I turn the key further at this point it will retract.


Is there any internal adjustment on the lock to alter the amount of retraction so that I can restore the original behaviour - i.e. retracting sufficiently to open the door for several years?

Many thanks!
