Saw to cut though door bolt?

by adam_z8 » Sat Feb 05, 2022 4:46 pm

Hi, hope you can recommend anything.
We have old living room doors. The key was bent and it's stuck, that's not the issue though, the lock bolt is out.
So we cannot close the doors at all:/ tried various things but l have now decided to cut off the bolt. We don't need to key lock the doors anyway. just want to close it :) l am thinking...just a metal saw would do...but would it? any recommendations on hand metal saw for that job? thank you!

Hi adam_z8,
An ordinary hacksaw blade should work well but you may have to use pad handle so you can cut the bolt flush.
Regards S
