UPVC Door Lock Problems
Are you having problems with your UPVC door lock?
If your UPVC door lock is broken in the latched or fully locked position this can also be fixed, we have been opening jammed UPVC door locks for over 25 years and always try to open the lock without causing any further damage to the lock internally giving us the best chance of a repair or renew without causing any damage to your UPVC door or framework.
We carry specialist tools to open all types of jammed UPVC door locks and with our expert knowledge often know the best approach to opening the jammed lock, I have been called to many jobs where a locksmith has failed to open the door and even damaged a lock that could have been repaired.
If your door handles are stiff or notchy to lift or your key is difficult to turn these are early signs of a worn or damaged UPVC door lock.
Other signs are loose handles or door keys that spin around a few times before they catch and lock the door fully.
I have also seen worn locks that do not retract some or all of the hooks or dead bolts fully, making the door difficult to open and close.
Note: Never let anyone take away parts from your door or locking mechanism, as a quick photo taken with a mobile phone and a few measurements are always enough, Many locksmiths take parts away and never return with the part let alone fix the lock, if parts are missing it is far more difficult for the next tradesman to repair or identify your door lock!
