Upvc Doors Suddenly wont lock, open or shut

Upvc Doors Suddenly wont lock, open or shut

With the warmer weather upon us one of the most common calls I receive is one mentioning the above issues.

I recently completed a multi-point locking system replacement for a customer who called Lockforce Locksmiths Southampton and after one week when the warmer weather struck I had a call back mentioning the door struggled to open freely.
I reassured the customer that all work carried out by Lockforce locksmiths in Southampton carries a one-year warranty, however I also mentioned that the issue would not be down to the new locking system I installed but it was the sudden change of temperature expanding the Upvc doors themselves.
I arranged to pop around that morning free of charge (as it’s part of the service when you choose Lockforce Southampton). I then adjusted all the multipoint locking rebates, so the door closes freely.
As part of the service being your local community locksmith, I showed the customer how to adjust the rebates so later, when the weather changes for the colder, he can adjust the system back to its original state.

All part of the locksmith service in Southampton, so choose Richard at Lockforce Southampton, your local community locksmith and call me on 07542 513 739 or visit https://www.lockforce.co.uk/locksmith/Southampton/ https://www.checkatrade.com/LockforceSouthampton/

Know your lock mechanism...

Lock mechanism care...

A common problem we come across at Lockforce Liverpool is a customer not being able to lock or open their UPVC & Composite doors because of failed mechanisms. 

Firstly what is a mechanism? It's the strip of metal you see within the door that the bolt and hook comes out of, integral to keeping you safe and secure.

There’s a number of causes to a mechanism failing but by far the most common is people continuing to force the handle up to engage the bolt and hooks. This occurs because the door has misaligned by dropping and therefore the door and frame no longer line up as they should and making it harder to engage everything. 

With this you’re then putting undue pressure on the gear box (brains of the mechanism) within the mechanism and this leads to parts in the gear box either snapping off or bending with the force and this leads to it failing. Sod’s law will tell you that it will fail when trying to lock it late at night, leaving you with the decision of either leaving your door unlocked overnight (not wise) and paying for a locksmith to come and repair it out of hours which can be more costly. Or it will fail to open from the locked position just as you’re getting ready to leave for work, making you late whilst you call for a locksmith to come out and gain entry and repair the problem.

Either situation is of great inconvenience and could leave you exposed. Your safety is our main concern here so please consider our recommendations at Lockforce Liverpool, if you’re finding it more difficult to lift the handle and turn the key then don’t delay, call your local, trusted Locksmith.

We would prefer to come round and adjust your doors by the hinge or toe/heeling method at a lesser cost to you rather than the eventual mechanism fail at a greater expense and exposed safety.

MPL Repairs by Lockforce Locksmiths Leeds

Lockforce Locksmiths in Leeds are UPVC repair specialists; we stock hundreds of different make, model and types of UPVC mechanisms for UPVC doors, patio sliding doors and the more popular composite doors. But why do they break? And what happens when they do? This short blog is of recent UPVC issues we have carried out all over the city of Leeds


Pictured above is a Multi Point Locking system removed from a front door in Holbeck Leeds, what happened here was the customer went to open her door and turned the key in the lock to open which is did, then went to pull down the handle to open the door and all that happened was a noisy crack, the handle became floppy and the door remained shut. Lockforce arrived on site and opened the door using our specialist bypass tools and then removed the locking system to identify the make and model and identify the broken parts. The middle section is called a gearbox and it was this that had collapsed on the spindle. We removed the old and refit the new Multi Point Gearbox and linked the rods together, tested out of the door then fitted in the door and retested, all was good and the door was repaired. This lock failure was due to wear and tear the unit was 25 years old and has been used constantly nearly every day in that time

Some UPVC multi point locking systems also have mortise keys not the standard Yale type euro locks , these systems work the same way, lift the handle engage the locking system that may have hooks, dead bolts, mushrooms or pins . However wear and tear and also badly cut keys can cause wear and tear damage to the internal levers, always make sure you get your original keys cut by a professional key cutter and never have a copy of a key copied

The Multi point locking system pictured above is a very old locking mechanism that is now discontinued, however it was not age or wear and tear that broke this locking system is was the door alignment. Door alignment is a common problem this is where the door has dropped and is no longer in line with the keeps in the door frame and closing and locking the door had become difficult, having to force the handle up before the key would turn to lock. This puts extra strain on the system and usually causes a link to break. Unfortunately with this system no longer available a new system and keep was installed.

If you have trouble locking your front door, patio door, composite door and you have to force the handle or the lock, contact a Locksmith a realignment of your door is much cheaper option and will add many years to your multi point locking system
