1  Are you sure that the key is going fully into the lock?  I had trouble with one of ours recently, but WD40 and a bit of patience seems to have sorted it.

2  If all else fails (if it's like our Nuevo) you might be able to carefully grind the pins out of the hinges.

Good luck.

One of my wet locker locks seized up too. I ordered two new locks, didn’t want the hassle of the second lock seizing up.

One of my locks just keeps coming out with the key. When I've turned it a few times I can get it to stay in. I'm wondering whether to replace it with a cork or other stopper that I can pull off then turn the lever with a flat bladed screwdriver.

Although the other lock is OK can anyone suggest a more secure solution?

Had they been made of the correct materials, EG Stainless steel in the first place then the above would be unnecessary. £60,000 van £0.50p lock!!
