Wobbly Door Handles
Do you have loose or wobbly door handles? Floppy handles can be the first sign that there maybe a problems with your door alignment. Call 0208 310 4193 to speak with David.
After sometime UPVC door handles can become Stiff, Loose or Wobbly.
Wobbly door handles can be caused by a dropped door, damaged handles, broken springs or a problem with the multi-point locking system.
Don’t panic as it is very rare for the door handle to fall off, there are two main causes for this problem:
- Worn handle due to age and usage
- Damaged handle due to stiff operation of the door / lock
For cause (1) replacement handles is all that is required.
For cause (2) replacement handles plus door / lock adjustments are required.
If your door handle is stiff to operate or loose / wobbly then it is worth getting fixed before more damage is caused, the multi point locking system is prone to jamming or breaking if the handle is stiff.
How to test your stiff, loose or wobbly door handle:
If your door handle is stiff to operate when the door is shut but smooth when the door is open then you have a problem, please give me a call.
If your door is stiff to shut, latch or double lock and you need to forced the handles up, this could indicate that your door needs to be adjusted and serviced.
Don’t wait until your door handle breaks off or worst still, the multi point locking system breaks thus locking you in or out!

Please note; door alignment issues are not always due to the hinges, it could be that the your UPVC double glazed door requires to be toed and heeled.
Wobbly door handle springs
Some locking systems use springs inside the multi point locking systems and others use springs inside the door handles.
If the springs are worn or broken inside your wobbly door handles, the springs can often be replaced but not all handles have replaceable spring sets. Unfortunately if your style of handle does not have replaceable springs then your only option would be to replace the door handle set. We stock most common size door handles in White, Chrome, Gold, Silver and Black for your UPVC Front & Back doors, French doors and Patio doors.
If your wobbly door handles do not have springs, this means that your multi point locking system will need servicing or replacing.

I receive many phone calls from customers who have fitted their own replacement door handles but due to the 100’s of handles available they bought the wrong door handles. Unfortunately when the customer or builder has fitted the incorrect handle they had drilled through the multi point locking system and damaged the lock beyond repair.
