What You Need to Know Before You Call a Locksmith
The most common problem is a loose uPVC handle. To fix this, first remove the plastic decorative plate that is behind the lock. Once it is removed, turn it clockwise to gain access to the adjusting screws. Once you have accessed the adjusting screws, tighten them to fit the handle securely on the slab. If the door still does not close properly, the problem is due to the door’s seal.
Other common problems that may require a uPVC lock repair include a broken gearbox, damaged mushroom, or a damaged hook. Damaged gearbox or multipoint lock may result in a replacement cost of PS60 – PS200. A faulty multipoint lock can also be caused by poor alignment of the door. For this reason, it may take a locksmith up to two hours to repair the door.
One of the first issues to deal with when looking for a uPVC lock repair service is whether the door has been installed correctly. Having an expert check this can help you determine which lock to buy. Some uPVC locks may be too old to be repaired and require a replacement. This is especially true if you have a damaged latch or keyhole. If the uPVC lock does not lock properly, it may be due to the door’s hinges not being aligned properly.
