Simple steps for fitting a Yale Lock
We usually refer to the locks in wooden doors that automatically lock when you shut the door as Yale locks. These are one of the easiest types of locks to fit from scratch when you have a wooden front door. If you buy a Yale lock off the shelf in say B&Q or a hardware store then this is what you need to do.
Open the packet and lay all the pieces on the ground next to the door. Then you need to take a whole saw or insert a bit for drilling holes into your drill. Measure from the edge of the door in millimetres to a point on the door usually about 40 or 60 mil. Once you have market the point on the door simply drill a hole straight through the door.
Right believe it or not, your pretty much done. Simply attach the plate from the lock case to the inside of the door then push the Yale lock through the door and security it in place with the bolts provided.
Next you need to try to place the handle of the lock onto the Yale stem which is popping through the door. If it fits great, if not the trim down the stem with a set of pliers. Now all you need to do is secure the Handle in place.
Next comes the keeps and they are pretty self explanatory, just mark where they are going on the door and measure the depth then start to remove small pieces of wood with a chisel until you are left with a gap that the keeps fit into snugly. Add a few screws and you have just fitted your first Yale lock from scratch.
If you have any problems with this or you would like a professional to come and do the job, then simple get in touch with our Manchester based locksmiths and we will come and fit the Yale lock for you.
Here’s how you remove a Euro lock from a PVC or rock door.
This procedure is very simple and can be done by anyone, however if this procedure is done wrong you can end up spending hundreds of pounds on a new PVC door mechanism so before you start remember BE GENTLE THIS PROCEDURE TAKES NO FORCE AT ALL.

If the lock feels loose the you should try turning the key 10 degrees in either direction very gently while putting on a small amount of pulling pressure at the same time. Once you have turned the lock in the correct direction with the right amount of force the lock will simply slide out. Remember be gently.
Next you need to install the new Euro lock. first take the lock from its packaging and place it next to the lock you have just removed from your door. They should be identical in length on both side. Next you need to insert the key into the lock and turn it until the cam in the center of the lock becomes flush with the sides of the lock. Keeping the key in this position you next need to slide the lock into the door whilst looking down the whole where you took the bolt from in the beginning.
Once you can see the thread from where the bolt goes the lock is in the correct place. before inserting the bolt back into the whole you should check that the lock is flush on both sides of the door. If it is not then remove the lock, spin it round and repeat the previous procedure.
Once you can see the thread down the bolt hole and both the inside and outside locks are flush with the door you can reinsert the bolt and simply remove the key. You have just replaced a Euro lock. In some cases there are special devices fitted to your locks to stop criminals. These devices will stop you from removing the lock.

Fitting a Rim Cylinder: This is probably the easiest lock fitting job where you measure the distance from the edge of the door to a point and drill a single hole through the door. Once the rim cylinder is fitted, simply measure up for the keeps.
Picking a Car Lock: If you are using a 2 in 1 lishi pick, then simply push the pick all the way into the lock and then add very light rotation. Pushing toward the spring simply run through the pins gently feeling small movements until the lock gives and the door opens.
Snapping a Lock: On PVC doors the lock is held in place with a singe screw from the side. This makes a weak point on the lock. If the lock protrudes from the door more than 5 mil you can simply grab the lock front moving it side to side until the weak point gives way. Remove the lock and throw the bolt and the door will open.
Opening a PVC window with no key: If you have lost the key to your PVC window, you can simply force the handle in the direction it will unlock and the handle will go.
Slipping a rim cylinder: If you want to unlock a rim cylinder without causing damage you can slide a thin piece of flat plastic in the door at the same level as the latch. Jiggle the door back and forward whilst pushing the plastic into the door and it will open.
Fitting a Euro Lock: A Euro lock can not be fitted to or removed from a PVC door without the key as you need to rotate the center cam so it is flush with the sides of the lock. The lock will then slide into the door. Once the lock is in the door you can line up the screw hole at the side of the door and simply tighten it to secure the lock.
