Stricker on my deadbolt broken - in locked position?
My deadbolt is crumbing as I tried to fix it today. Learned that the stricker is broken, therefore, it will not turn to open the deadblot w/a screwdriver.

How do I get that deadbolt to open...grrrr!

Remove the two screws holding the lock part together and remove it, you should be able to reach inside and move it out of the way with a flat screwdriver.

Not optimum, but worst comes to worst get an angle grinder, stick it into the edge between door and frame, and cut the deadbolt in half. Or, you could try to demolish the latch assembly from the hole in the door enough to pull the bolt out. Either way, you might have some damage to the surrounding areas.

Have you tried lubricating the latch mechanism and then really putting some torque on it?
