Hello Sweet-Pea and welcome to the community!


I need more information before I can help you get the lock out.


  • Can you tell what make & model of your patio door?
  • Is the lock made for your patio door or are you retrofitting the lock?
  • Can you post pictures of your patio door?

Hopefully you will be able to respond to these questions that will enable us to help you solve the problem.

Hi Sweet-Pea,


In most cases it will be easier to replace the lock than go through the trouble of removing and disassembling the door.


Patio doors are heavy and if it's a glass door dangerous to work with, you could break the glass trying to retrieve the lock.


New glass will cost a lot more then a new lock set.
