Entrance door handles sticking or won’t lock?

As we spend more time at home in lockdown, we are getting more people realising some of the petty ‘niggles’ around the house.

A common problem is the mechanism on UPVC entrance doors and patio doors, where the mechanism to pull down to open and pull up to lock is becoming more difficult or has indeed jammed.

Although many people put up with a bit of fiddling around to get the door closed and locked, in our experience this will soon lead to a more serious breakdown – often at the most inopportune moment!

In many cases the lock gearbox mechanism simply wears out and/or jams leaving you with either a locked door you can’t open or arguably as difficult, a door you simply can’t close or lock – something you don’t want to happen either last thing at night or at the point you want to go out to work.

It is a reasonably simple procedure for a locksmith to replace the original gearbox and make sure, these issues do not become a major security problem.

Whether you are simply having operating issues, or a jammed door, UK Locks and Alarms have a wide range of gearboxes in stock to help solve the problem and can replace quickly and efficiently.

We can normally give a quote over the phone, we don’t charge a call out fee or VAT and we charge by the job not by the hour, unlike the national firms.

Don’t wait until it’s too late – get a replacement today. Call 0800 999 2828 or contact us today for more information and a quote.
