Several different types, but they would come as a matching pair.

Probably cheaper to buy a new lock, although I would ask our local locksmith who has a shop in town.

Alternative is post the lock and I could  rebuild it for you and match the keys.

Replacement lock cylinders
May 25th, 2004, 8:57pm
 
I've been asked to change the cylinder on a Yale front door lock. No probs - can buy these in the local DIY sheds.

However, this is a deadlock which has a key on the inside as well as the outside. And I haven't been able to find a replacement cylinder for the inner.

Anyone know whether this arrangement requires the whole lock to be replaced? Seems the most probable option but perhaps someone knows of replacements.
