    Replace the lock. I don't think you can get it out, escpecially if it's broke off really short.

    A locksmith might be able to help you--they have specialized tools to take locks apart.  However, that will cost you some money.    Good luck.

    I've asked my partner about this, as I know nothing of such mechanical things!  Apparently (& logically) it depends on the type of lock.  Some you can take apart and therefore extract the key.  Some you can drill out the key without damage if you're lucky.  Otherwise, I guess it's a new lock - probably cheaper than the locksmith!
