Locked out


I keep my garage locked but this morning the lock failed. I put the key in as normal, it turned as normal but it wouldn't pull the piece out that locks the door so I am stuck, can't get in my garage. The big door doesn't have a lock on it. I have a new lockset to install but I can't figure out how to remove the old one. I'm looking for a good way to get in short of pushing the door in, if possible. Thanks, Joe

If the big door does not have a lock on it, why not just open it?

I meant the big door doesn't have a key type lock, you lock the mechanism inside. Anyway, my brother came over with his cordless saw and sawed the knob off of it, reached inside and pulled the stuff out.
