Many other double glazing repairer’s primary business is instillation of new double glazing. Often they do not have the skills or knowledge to be able to offer this technical service. Or unable to convert available parts to discontinued locks, mechanisms and door hinges etc.
Beware of double glazing companies having their core trade in glazing. They may not have the expertise to carry out complex conversions and insist that an affordable repair is not an option.

Mila 3 series and GU window and door lock mechanisms
I have been receiving a lot of enquiries regarding Mila espag (Espagnolette) and shoot bolt locking systems. Mila have discontinued a lot of their old models.Unfortunately some of Mila new models do not directly replace the old models.
GU multi point door locks have also been updated with new models. However most new GU locks, do not fit into the old locks apertures.
Over the years I have found ways over these problems and know which models are interchangeable with each other without leaving large holes in your window / door frames or even the door edge itself.
If you have a GU or Mila door / window lock problem, please give me a call as I carry most parts on my van and can solve most problems in one visit.
