Ex MOD door latches

2 of 3 doors won't lock. Key moves in barrel and tab on inside moves but door does not lock. Looks like this 86 ex mod has the series III type anti burst latches. Does not look like much inside of these to repair, all the refs I have looked at treat them as a box not opened... Not excited to take it off not having any idea of what lies inside. Would I be better off just ordering new latches? Can I hope to use the barrels I already have? Or should I get 3 new barrels too? Any sage advice? Thanks!

SO.. I bet you a burger that what's happening is that your door isn't closed.

Unless the U latch is fully into its second detent, the lock won't lock. It'll just spring back. That's how I tell my kids to close the door. Yank it shut, until it locks.

There's a good deal of play in the door jamb. Loosen it up, move it out, shut the door... betcha it locks.

But yes, they are series "anti burst".

I don't know how to get the barrels out of them to rekey.

Hi you can open the door and push the catch on the lock assy down to the 2nd latched position and then you should be able to turn the key to lock it.
it sounds like your latch is only getting to the 1st latch position.

The barrel is held into the barrel with the lock keyways and a small pin on the end of the barrel
To remove the barrel find the small hole in the barrel housing, you'll need to insert the key and then push a small rod into the hole to release the pin on the barrel assy, pull it all out with the key.

you can see the pin at the end of the barrel in this photo..

How you mean... like you close the latch (push the u to facing down n) and when you pull the handle it doesn't spring up?

If so. It may be bent, or it may have come apart inside...

THAT.. sounds broken. I could swear I ran into the same thing at one point and ended up fixing it... but if I'm remembering the right time... it took welding. Building up and grinding something that had become worn.

I can't remember what it looked like, and not having door uppers at the time, I don't think I ever tried locking it.

My left door was popping open and wouldn't lock with the key. I had a spare mechanism and you guys motivated me to swap out my keyed tumbler into the spare and install it today. The door now solidly closes and locks. Thank you!

there's probably no way I can get a new lock cylinder to match my other 3 is there? I just picked up a rear door...

I would guess that any competent locksmith could rekey the cylinder to match. If you need a tumbler I have one without a key.

eh.. maybe..
I don't know if they sell "blank" cylinders, or if there's parts needed to buy, but.. yea.. I've never actually engaged a locksmith. Always just a really decent key cutter.
