Wooden Door Broken Lock
Locks can fail for any number of reasons
The back door has been getting harder to lock and on this occasion
, you have managed to lock it but now the key is stuck.
Another common problem this time it's a Mortice deadbolt. ( Also
known as the CHUBB lock)
I have customers that have used Cooking oil YES Cooking oil to
oil their lock. This is not a good idea as the oil will attract dust and
stick to the leavers. Eventually, the levers will stick together
jamming the key.
If you do need to use oil use a good quality spray oil with ptfe.
But thats not always the case . This Lock ( See Picture) had a wasp nest inside.
Other common causes for a Mortice lock failure can be badly cut keys or copys of copys, or
line-up of the keeps.
