Modern UPVC door locks are designed to be strong and to perform reliably. However, even the best locksets and doors can get damaged and/or start to malfunction. In such cases, timely resolution is required for keeping the property as secure as before.
It is usually quite easy to notice a problem with the operation of the lockset. Common signs include blockage of the keyway, inability to turn the key smoothly and difficult movement of the bolt. The device is carefully inspected for pinpointing the problematic component. Usually, it is the cylinder or the locking mechanism. If the component cannot be fixed, it is replaced with a new one of the same type and size. When necessary, the internal components are cleaned and lubricated for achieving perfect performance.
Most modern locksets use multipoint mechanisms. This means that they have one or more bolts. This allows them to provide a higher level of security, but the risk of damage and malfunction becomes greater as well. It is possible for one or more of the bolts to stop retracting in and out, which might cause the entire lockset to malfunction. If lock repair is not possible in this case, the device will be replaced. It is always best to opt for a more advanced lockset that will offer a higher level of security for a long time to come.
Misalignment is usually due to an issue with the hinges. One or both of them may be loose or broken. The problem is easy to notice as the door will simply not fit into the frame. The hinges should be repaired or replaced depending on their condition and then lubricated. This allows for the door to be adjusted accurately and securely.
