    You might ask your local hardware store, like an AXCE as they often can do a small cutting or grinding job very easily for very little cost. Or go to a Lowe's or Home Depot & take your project along with you.

    Since you know exactly how it’s made, can you please share what tools they want you to have?

    Harbor Freight has 20% off coupons, every day. Dollar Tree has pliers, screw drivers, tape measures, and hand saws.

    I have no idea how you would make a door lock without tools ~ can you not borrow tools from a neighbor or friend?

    If you don't have the tools then you might need to move to Plan B!

    You would need at least a pair of pliers to cut the handle off and bend the fork tines.

    You might try flea markets or yard sales, they always have a whole bunch of tools and etc...

    Why would you want to do this in the first place? Why not just buy an eye hook and latch like a fence gate and a screw driver.
