Boot Lock Help

I've had problems with my boot lock not working and found out that the spring had broken off. I managed to get another boot lock but with no key. Is it possible to change the barrel over from the old one to the new one so I can use the key?

Yes, it is possible, but a bit of a fiddle, and you absolutely MUST take great care not to let the sliders drop out of the barrel you want to use - if one drops out, it is obvious where to put it back in, but if several drop out, you will be a long time by trial and error/refering to the contours of the key to get them all back in in the right slots (I know - been there, done that!).

I would explain exactly how to do it, but it was around 10 years ago now, and to be honest, I can't really remember
