My front door’s lock has become very stiff recently when I try to turn the key in it to unlock it. However, it doesn’t seem to bad when locking the door. I’d like to solve this soon so I don't get locked out.
It seems to have gone worse over time and is now consistently stiff, despite the door and lock only being a few years old.
Is there anything I can do to make the lock a bit looser? Or is it more likely that I need to replace the door’s lock?
If anyone has any ideas for what could have caused this, please let me know – as I don’t want any repeats of this in future.
