Looks like any normal door lock. Just go any hardware shop and look for it. Except for the barrel length, they are all pretty much standard sizes. Opposite Sim Lim Tower got 2 hardware shops, inside rochor center also have one big hardware shop near the loading bay area. If you are not staying around town area, any other hardware shop should carry. Worse come to worse go those home fix DIY shop and buy. They also carry some door locks and handles.

basically, you just have to replace the cylinder only.

Dig out old thread.

 

My HDB main door the lock bit spoilt. Is this type:

lock.jpeg

 

Here it shows the full bolt is extended and is locking completely/normally.

 

Now from inside the house, cannot turn the lever to lock normally. Can only turn a bit and only about 20% of the full bolt will come out. If insert the key from the outside, then can turn and lock completely/normally.

 

Using the key seems to be ok. 

 

Any expert here can advise whether is this repairable? Put oil already still doesn't resolve the problem...

 

Or definitely need to replace the whole lock?

 

Thanks...

this usually happened once it is misaligned.

You need to dismantle, study and align back.

This is a handyman job if you have confidence if

not you may not get it back to the way you want!

If this is the main door under the rain and sun, likely the

wood is wearing off and a slight move on the chamber

may resulted this problem.

this is very simple and cheap lah ... just replace it ... go to the suicidal shop and buy the deadbolt set ... average ones will be ard $15 only. as extra measure, just drip some singer oil on the moving parts after the installation of the new deadbolt set.

ok. am in 2 minds on approach leh. 

wan to buy a spare set first, then attempt to open up and see can resolve? 

Then if can resolve, the new set will be wasted.

 

but if dun buy first, and open up already cannot resolve, might not be able to put back, then only go and buy with the door opened...  [sweatdrop]


mine also this type . . . and mine also not working . . . the latch not catching.

ha ha... then what did you do? after that never ever lock the door again? Then go out or night time how??

 

think better change a new one for peace of mind lah...

It doesn't get the sun much, if at all.

i had changed it once many (17, to be precise) years ago. It lasted this long...

but now, without instruction manual, dunno how to do liao leh... scared dismantled already cannot put back.

those shop selling cheap sundries like "closing down sales" type of shop lah ... ppl call 跳楼货 ...

 

price will depend on the brand ... if you go for branded stuffs then will cost more. but if you just chose the chinese brand will be cheaper.

 

but it all works the same. i replaced mine immediately after HDB gave me the keys after the upgrading.

 

another thing to look out for is the size ... best to remove your current one for a fitting.

Bro, I am now at causeway point. The home fix has got a set of Yale which is suitable replacement for ours. $134

Your front side of the door has got a longish handle with a "thumb latch" you press on it to open door after unlocking? This is the one I think.
