I did chase replacement cylinders and found some that look like they would work but probably require some modification. That's when I decided to try a little harder to save the original one. I'll keep maintaining this one until it dies completely, then worry about it.

I have a bookmark here, must have been where my research led me.

a good locksmith is in Township dr Burleigh West.
Thanks aclmick, good to know if I need to in the end and not far away.

Re: Salon door lock and locker push buttons

I have found a possible replacement lock in the uk made of stainless http://www.seascrew.com/browse.cfm?S...0001015http:// but not having the dimensions of the original 'Select' lock with me and not visiting until next spring I cannot compare. I contacted them to confirm that the lock would fit a 10mm thick perspex door which they have. My feeling is that the lock is bigger than the original so had tentatively planned to make a new stainless escutcheon plate to fit on the outside which would hide the old fixing and lock cylinder holes. It looks a bit more robust than the original.

If anyone has the dimensions/sketch of the original part I would be grateful.

Stephen

Wayne,

The Mister Minute Kiosk at Australia Fair Southport did ours. He just had a quick look at our bent old original and said "ah boat key, no sweat". He had the blanks in stock and had the spares made in five seconds flat.

Cheers
Lisa
