I need to remove an old Euro Cylinder (Yale) that is missing the key.

Tried snapping it and all other methods I can think of - the cam is stopping it.

Will removing the multi point lock give me more access? How easy are they to re-fit?

Any more ideas?

You don't do it like that, here is Mr UHM himself showing how its done, it IS as easy as he says, I have done it.

Thanks both but mine is stuck (the cam is somehow locked preventing it from coming out and I don't have the key).

Last resort is to try and drill it out by breaking the pins.

You need to be able to turn the key to align the cam with the body of the lock. Otherwise the lock won't come out. When they're locked the cam is stuck out.

They are a doddle to snap if all else has failed.Chez has done a video on this too.

Sorry I've just watched the video above (hadn't done before, I just assumed it was the one where you snap the lock, but it's not the right video...)

This is what I did and here is what you need to do: it is a piece of cake and will take seconds

Thanks for that video - I've seen that too but think I've figured out the problem.

33 seconds into the video where the lock is exposed, the plastic is cut away with lots of room.

The lock I am trying to remove doesn't have this - it is snug in so not much space to maneuver.

I'll take a look at how it fits and can hopefully cut away some of the plastic and snap the lock.

This is where I find out it is one of those anti-snap ones!
