It is very common for upvc doors to shift around due to weather conditions and other factors making them difficult to lock or in alot of cases impossible to lock, when this situation occurs we can make adjustments to the door to make it as good as new. It is a good idea to get this problem sorted when the first signs occur which is usually when you notice the handle is a bit harder to lift than normal. Leaving the problem to worsen will usually lead to a complete locking mechanism failure as more and more strain is put on the mechanism.

UPVC Locksmith Service

At key fit locksmiths as well as normal upvc door lock changes we also carry out upgrades to upvc door and window security. Probably the biggest security upgrade available at the moment is anti snap locks which is a new style of British standard lock barrel which stop all the most common types of euro cylinder attack. We also provide very similar services for window locks, handles and mechanisms. No matter what part of your window lock is broken or faulty we can help. It is a very similar situation with upvc window mechanisms as it is with door mechanisms, if you notice it is getting difficult to push the handle down to lock the window in place there is probably a adjustment needed as soon as possible before the whole mechanism gives way due to the extra force and strain.

What Is Locksnapping?

You may well have heard of “cylinder snapping” or “lock snapping”. It’s a method used by burglars to break into property that is secured using a euro cylinder (e.g. almost all properties that have UPVC doors, although a significant number of composite and aluminium doors use them too, and they’re often used in commercial as well as domestic environments).

The method of lock snapping involves breaking the cylinder to then manipulate the lock to open. Whilst you may think that all the multi locking points on your door make it secure, it’s important to realise they are all operated by the cylinder – this is the weakest point and if compromised all the locking points are rendered useless.
