Multi point locking mechanisms within your UPVC doors & window

Multipoint locking systems have a number of individual locking points that simultaneously move when turning the key or handle.

The main parts of a multi point locking system are the hook, deadbolt, roller cam and centre latch.

Importantly, if all of these parts when in good working order not only enable the door to open and lock smoothly but they provide outstanding security against any attempts to force the door open when locked.

Locks perform different actions;

  • Lever lever is when the door handle has to be lifted to engage the locks then turn the key once to lock.
  • Lever Pad is the same as lever lever but a key must be used to gain access from outside even when the door is unlocked.
  • Wind up is when the door key has to be turned several times to engage all the locks, the handle is not used to lock the door.
  • Automatic Locking is when the locking points automatically engage when the door is closed, therefore offering instant security on your front door.

These multi point mechanisms, levers, springs and ball bearings over time will of course wear and eventually malfunction or break. This is inevitable especially to a locking mechanism of a main entrance or exit door.

Typically, SheffLOCK have found that many people in the past have had entire multi point locking mechanisms replaced unnecessarily when all that needed was to repair or replace certain sections of the multi point lock.

SheffLOCK’s approach is to ensure we provide you with the most cost effective solution to the problem whilst enabling the door mechanism to once again provide a smooth operation along with maximum security.

If any part of your multi pint locking mechanism is starting to malfunction or has completely broken our advice is to not attempt to remove or repair the problem yourself but instead contact the SheffLOCK team and have the problem fixed as soon as possible.

Broken Door Locking Mechanism

It is a fact that we use doors more often than windows for access to and from properties.

Faulty door locking mechanism's are actually rare if the door is aligned correctly and usually door mechanisms are broken/ or become damaged through leaving the problem too long after the door becomes mis-aligned over time.

SheffLOCK can repair or replace all known UPVC door locking mechanisms quickly and without any damage to your current doors or frames.

Most locks can be adjusted so they are free to work again which is a great cost effective solution for our customers.

Doors not shutting properly

If you are having difficulty in opening and closing your door it is important to remedy this problem as quickly as possible via a locksmith who specialises in this area.

If the issue is not resolved quickly then the problem will continue to worsen over time potentially resulting in the locking mechanisms in your UPVC door completely failing and locking the door shut. This can become a costly and inconvenient situation.

Over time UPVC doors start to sag in the frame which is a normal and common occurrence.

This issue causes the door to become mis-aligned and when lifting the handle of your door you may feel it becomes tighter along with when you turn the key to lock the door.

When the door becomes mis-aligned it causes the locking parts to be out of alignment so the pins and locks do not locate in the lock housings properly.

Doncaster locksmiths SheffLOCK can look at how your door operates and see if your UPVC door requires re-aligning.

If your door is not locking smoothly we advise a quick test that can be undertaken by yourself and only takes a few seconds:

At the said door that is not locking smoothly, open the door.

Whilst open, lift the door handle up (this should engage the multi point locking mechanism at the side of the door).

Turn the key in the euro lock as if the door was closed to lock the door.

If this process is smooth then the issue is most definitely a realignment issue.

It is important in order to correct this alignment problem that you employ the services of a locksmith from SheffLOCK who will know exactly how to realign the door.

Attempting to resolve the problem yourself without the required knowledge and experience can quickly make the situation a lot worse.
