How to enlarge lock hole (small mailbox)?

The hole before I messed it up a bit


Had to break my apartment mailbox lock open after the key broke. Been looking and no where seems to have a lock that small. How can I enlarge the current hole?

I am far from a hands on guy, thought I can chip the sides off by moving the drill bit around, but got no where after going at it for half an hour

Please let me know how this is often done and what I need to do it.

I would search for "mailbox locks" on your favorite search engine and don't forget to go on line and check at Home Depot, Lowes and Ace Hardware. They have locks that may replace the lock you had to remove. Lastly, look on the box for a name. If you find a name contact them for their recommendation.
