Question about Locks & Locksmithing
I have a single cylindar deadbolt and the key on the outside will not turn. When the door is closed the deadbolt locks with ease from the inside.
The pins are probably frozen. Spray some w/d in lock, then try with key, keep repeating till key turns, this should free up lock. Dirt and moisture gets in lock cyl and gets gummed up. You could also remove handle and have locksmith take apart and clean, they will then use graphite instead of w/d wich attracts dirt.
