Monk 36 Door Lock Issue

The starboard sliding door lock on my 1985 Monk is broken. It looks to be the original and the only "brand" markings is Bird. Basically, there is a small stud/pin that has a spring that attaches to an "actuator" so, that when the knob or key is turned the spring actuates the latch. The small stud/pin has broken off.

I tried using JB Weld to re-attach the stud/pin and that worked fine for about a day. Then it broke again!

I have scanned the Internet and cannot find any references to the lock.

Does anyone here have a lead or suggestion where I may find an old one or have this one repaired?

Thanks!

Paul

Welcome aboard! Hopefully the port lock still works. We're in the same boat. We have not found a replacement either. We lock the bad door from the inside and only use the good lock from the outside. When that goes we're going to use a hasp and padlock.

Thanks Archie! That is what we do now, as well. I have been trying to figure a way to repair the lock. I'll let you know if I do.

Take it out and have a machinist look at it... Perhaps they an weld the pin back or replace it completely?

I've looked at a thousand photos online and not one is small enough to fit into the Monk door frame. The locksmiths just shake their heads.

someone had to make it to begin with, so that means it can be rebuilt.
