Does anyone know if these will fit the Aussie wind up window doors? Mine are buggered....

Alternatively, is there any way to repair them. The little nub on the end that turns the locking pin has worn/broken off.

I think John Smidt told me once that the boot lock tumbler can be modified to fit Oz windup door locks.
The UK door tumblers apparently don't fit.

Edit
Yes you can repair the little pin thing. I fixed a boot lock one by carefully drilling it out then pressing in a pin made from a bit of nickel bronze welding rod. I think it was 2.4 or 2.5mm diameter. I Loctited it as well.

thanks Doc.

Going to see if I can fix mine, otherwise i'll try the boot lock method.

As Doc said, repairable. Broke pin off due to brute force and ignorance. Drilled hole in barrel, tapped thread and used small screw to repair. Loctited and cut off head, still operational.
