This will engage all three bolts. It's broken now, the lock just turns freely. I cannot find the manufacturer or who to contact to repair. It looks like custom work and worried I might need to change the entire door which will be very expensive. Any help is appreciated. Please take a look at the attached photos.

    Looks like Anderson/Emco, but I am not an expert

    Before you declare the door as dead, get a locksmith to look at it. They may be able to replace the broken part.

    It just may be the lock mechanism that needs replacing, not the entire assembly. Call Andersen and explain your problem. They will help you and you can do the work yourself.

    Thanks everyone for the help. I will call Anderson and explain the situation. Looks like I can assemble this myself.
