    Does anyone know a person or place that can fix the spinning key problem. Ive found plenty of guides but im pretty heavy handed and almost guaranteed to break that antenna ring bit or something?

    I have repaired my old barrel after I fitted my new one you can put a screw in from the bottom to stop it from spinning could have saved myself £72
