How to secure a UPVC door that cannot be locked


In this video I secure a UPVC door which cannot be locked using the key/euro cylinder. This is useful if the door cannot be locked due to a faulty Euro cylinder, or if a key for the property is lost. You can secure the door using the method used in this video, until a replacement euro cylinder can be fitted.

Here are more videos that should help, if you are having problems with a Euro cylinder.
