*Very important* Anybody know how to assemble a lock?

Hi there,

Basically, I have removed the lock on my front door because it was giving me gyp. However, I got a little too screwdriver-friendly and screwed open Pandora's box as I cannot re-assemble the lock.

It's quite important I get this sorted because, as it stands, my house is extremely vulnerable to burglaries because it has no front door lock on it.

I now realise what a great, yet underrated this invention is, because the mechanics of it are extremely tricky.

Any help at all would be great. Thanks.

We'd need a lot of info unless/until you can post some pics....lock brand, type (mortise, cylindrical, handleset, interconnected, deadbolt, etc) residential or commercial. 'Bout the only thing in common they all have when re-assembling is the latch/bolt/body part that goes into the doors' edge has to be put in before the knobs/levers/trim can be put on the inner & outer face.
