Key Stuck In uPVC Door Lock
All locks can be fitted or upgraded to British Standard to meet insurance specifications.
*Sometimes burglars will “snib” the locks in homes they enter so the owner cannot just walk back into on property on their return. This will, however, alert the burglar, allowing them to make a clean getaway”*-The cylinder could be faulty or just worn due to age -The key itself could be old, worn or cracked. *Never force a key as it may snap inside the lock. If you have both pieces of a broken key, then our locksmiths will be able to replicate a fully working duplicate, saving the cost of a new cylinder. This can be done on site!* -Our locksmiths are able to extract broken keys to avoid replacing the lock.
UPVC door with problem
Tip - If the door locks perfectly while in the open position, it is an adjustment issue. However, if it is still hard to lock while in the open position it will more than likely be a mechanical fault, probably needing replacement parts.
Composite door with problem
Tip - If you engage the multipoint locking system ('hooks') everytime you close the door, it can help to keep the door straight and prevent warping.
Houses with door lock problems due to weather
The hot and cold weather can cause issues with your doors. Each year when the weather gets warmer or the weather gets much colder, we attend more and more call out's for door related issues, such as doors not locking or unlocking, doors sticking, doors stiff to open or close, key unable to turn or difficult to remove from lock.
uPVC doors can expand in the heat, this is why we tend to have more issues with uPVC doors in the summer. Typical problems caused by the expansion and swelling are doors becoming stiff and becoming difficult to open or close.
Tip - Applying cold water to your uPVC doors during the warmer weather can help your door to regain its shape. You can achieve similar results in the colder months by using warm water.
