Patio door lock - Replacement seems impossible!
Unfortunately we found ourselves locked out, with a key in one door and a patio door locked. No idea how this occurred, nightmare situation as the patio door key was in the house!!
Our neighbour tried to drill through the patio lock (see photos) and that did not work. In hindsight this was not the best idea...however in rural France we were not having any luck with a locksmith on a Sunday.
We managed to get in through an open window, however we now have an issue with a broken lock and no way to replace it. We cannot see any screws to remove the black handles and have been told by the local handyman that we must replace the whole door. It would be a real shame to have to do so.
Do you have any experience in this lock at all?
