    If it's a hollow key.. You need to completely clean it out with a needle and then blow it out with an air hose.. You might think its clean but it may not be.. The key may not be going in the full way onto the spigot.. Even a millimetre will prevent it from opening.. You could be very surprised.. That was problem with mine.. The key got small particles of dirt up in it from being in my pocket.. Anyway I rang brattonsound in England and they sent me a new lock and 2 keys.. Great people to deal with.. So now I have the old lock which is perfect.. But only one key with it.. Its here if you want it.. Its working as smooth as silk.. Gimme a bell if you want it and I'll send it on to you... Its very easy to fit.. Only 2 bolts.. Hope you get sorted..

    Thanks a mil for the offer Philog. Appreciate it. I dropped by a local locksmiths today and handed in the lock, was told they'd have a look but it would be tuesday before I'd have it back. No problem.

    I left and got a phone call 20 minutes later. Lock fixed. One of the levers had a problem so he replaced it and job done. 40euros. Delighted to have it sorted.

    So a big thanks and recommendation to Adm Security on the Tramore Road in Cork. I found out after that they don't even have a call out charge. Only charge for the work done. After I got a 120euro call out charge quote from a larger, more well known locksmith company before any work is done. I know where my business will be going in future.

    Thanks for all the previous help and suggestions fellas. Can't beat ye shooters for lending a hand.

    Yup. Couldn't have asked for a better result. Will refit the lock tomorrow. Shouldn't be a problem but if I have any hassle it's good to know these lads are there who can sort it.

    For posterity. WD40.

    WD40 is terrible for locks and guns. If you want to lubricate a lock powdered graphite works best.

    Yes, wd40 is useless for most things. Use proper light oil.

    WD40 is a most important tool in any rednecks tool kit.
