Good evening, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** would be happy to answer this for you.

These latch mechanisms are known for binding up and getting stuck, when this happens it can be kind of a pain to get it open. If you have tried opening it and the buttons will not give in, then the usual next step requires replacing the latch assembly. If it is locked up then the middle needs to be drilled out, after which the buttons will collapse and allow you to open it for replacement. Let me know if you have any further questions or need any part information :)
