What happens if you undo the middle one?

Yup. It looks like the middle screw is holding the plate over the rest of the stuff.


No, s-e is saying, the middle screw IS the lock barrel screw. The angle of the picture deceives the eye.

And, birthday boy, it doesn't matter if it's double or not, the image is of the final closer. The second opener would have a mortice.

Hi,

Thanks for your suggestions.

I've taken the middle screw out but no movement on the cylinder.

I've attached a few more pictures for clarity.

I guess there are now 2 scenarios:

1. The cylinder is jammed a little and needs a bit of a bang to dislodge it (seems to have rusted a little from the outside).
2. It's not the correct bolt to release the cylinder.

I have also taken a photo of the screw that came out of the middle hole - does this resemble a what I should be expecting size wise?

Thanks

Nope they are much longer than that, probably about 35mm on a standard door. I haven't got one to hand to measure.

Ok, so I've managed to figure it out.

It was the bolt covered by the two plates holding the cylinder.

As for the two plates either side of the bolt - when the handle is in the open position, the two plates cover the bolt and when the handle is in the lock position the two plates go back in.

Thanks for giving us feedback, I'm glad you got it sorted in the end
