Installing a Garage Door Lock

     If you are a home owner there is a fairly good chance that at some point you are going to need to replace the lock on your garage door, fortunately with the right parts and tools this is a very easy job, but not so easy that you don't totally need to watch this informative video I created about the process.



     There are a few things that can be a little tricky about pulling the old retaining ring off and putting the new one on. Because the old ring will be thrown away I suggest using a pair of wire cutters to simply cut it into two pieces which will make removal very simple. When installing the new ring you can't do that, obviously, but if you get a block of wood with a hole drilled in it a little larger than the square rod you can use a hammer and tap the ring into place, you can do the same with a pair of pliers, though that isn't quite as easy.
