Caravan Door Will Not Unlock
When your lock is not working, it can lead to problems and annoyance. The first thing to do is put some oil or silicone lubricant in the keyhole, slide the key in, and wiggle the key to move the tumblers in the lock. After that, put some oil behind the handle to allow smooth movement. If this has worked, put some more lubricant on the latch part and clean off any excess substance with a clean tissue.
If this does not work, a good idea would be to follow this set of instructions:
- Use a sharp-pointed screwdriver to remove the red and green button (for a Hartel lock, behind the Hartel name). Remove the four screws and the lock will come away from the frame.
- Buy a pair of circlips if you do not have any and use them to remove the circlips from the door lock, as well as the two washers.
- Remove the knob for locking and unlocking the caravan door lock completely.
- Shave the pin a tiny bit at a time using either emery paper, a file or a Stanley knife. Keep trying this step until the pin comes loose. After that, the knob will spring back by itself.
- Use Vaseline (plenty of it) and reassemble the door lock. After this, it should work fine.
