Saddlebag Lock Jammed

Postby Devil-Doc » Tue Nov 15, 2011 11:53 am



The lock's dust cover basically half disintegrated and pieces of it fell into the lock subsequently the key only goes in half way and won't unlock.

I need to be able to use the saddlebag, any ideas how to get it open?

Try blowing compressed air into the lock. Hopefully the pieces will fly out. Protect you eyes though.
