Hi

That is interesting and I am sure a few of us could find that really useful to have a walk through as a lot have more than one key.....

I may take a look and see on a spare one I have here.

I won’t pretend I know exactly how to do it but from what I saw the locksmith do, he removed the rectangular ‘staked in place’ side plates and re-arranged the Sausage shape pins so that they all sit level with the key in. This allows the barrel to turn.
Then slide the side plates back in and stake them. Simples!!!

I have done this job and I can confirm it requires great patience. As for when one of the pins and spring fly, well that is what swearing is for!

It will be increasingly necessary as more locks seize.

One lock now disassembled, just need to work out how to change it to suit a specific key and will get it documented, hopefully before too long......
