UPVC Door Repairs / UPVC Locks / Extra Security

With UPVC doors people often think that because they have a sophisticated locking mechanism, they must be secure. However, unless you have an anti-snap euro cylinder installed it is relatively simple for a criminal to snap the lock and gain entry to your property. It is for this reason that our Manchester locksmiths always recommend British Standard anti snap locks for all installations on Upvc doors and composite doors. Snap resistant locks does not mean that the lock cannot be snapped. It means that when an intruder snaps the lock it will snap at the end of the Upvc door lock and not at the point the lock turns. This means the door will remain locked and the intruder will be left out in the cold!

Gear box failed / Faulty door mechanism / UPVC door not closing / UPVC door not opening

Are you in your house and your door will not lock? Maybe the handle will not move, or the handle is loose? Are you locked out of the house because the door will not open? Is the door unlocked but the handle will not move? Or is the door working but the handle is stiff to pull up and down? These all indicate that the Upvc gearbox or mechanism has failed or is about to fail.

Our locksmiths in Manchester can help assess and identify the problem. A faulty gearbox can be identified following several different problems. These are; if the handle moves but door does not lock, the handle spins round and is not locking or unlocking the door, if the door does not hold shut when door is closed, and also when the handle is pressed downwards but the door will not open. A faulty gearbox or failed mechanism can be replaced by Locksmith L&E Locksmiths in Manchester the same day 90 percent of the time. Our local locksmiths carry stock of all the major brands and sizes of gearbox and mechanisms. This will allow you to open and lock your door safely.

In the cases where our emergency locksmith does not have the part you require, they can secure the door overnight and return with the correct part to repair the Upvc door the next day. Locksmith L&E locksmiths in Manchester will carry temporary gearboxes should we not stock your particular brand of gearbox, or we have to special order it. Our locksmiths Manchester will then be ready the next working day when they will come and replace the defective part. Our local locksmiths Manchester will always try and repair the door on site as soon as possible.
