Identifying Your Lock

At Lockforce Locksmith Ashton under Lyne we often get customers phoning us needing a lock repair, a lock replacement or possibly an Emergency Locksmith.

At times  customers may require a quote before we attend however its difficult without knowing what the issue is or what type of lock the customer may be talking about.

To help our customers  we have added some of the most commonly used locks in the UK, this may speed up the process  and provide some help in identifying your Door lock;

Euro Cylinder

The Euro cylinder is one of the most common types of locks used in the UK and is often found on Upvc and composite doors. in the majority of these types of doors, you need to lift the handle to engage the multi point locking mechanism before turning the key to lock. Euro cylinders have different levels of security such as Standard, 1* and 3*** however we always advise to make sure the Locks are Anti-Snap cylinders as a standard requirement.

Sash locks And Mortise Deadbolts

These are very common and found in wooden doors, usually with Night latches also known as Yale locks. The mortise Deadbolt is fitted internally into the wooden (sometimes metal containers) and the long key is inserted inside the frame of the door, usually inside a handle. After turning the key a bolt is extended into the keep on the adjacent frame, securing the door. If you have a British standard Mortise (BS3621) it should display the badge on the face place which looks like a heart (see picture). 

Night Latches (Also known as Yale Locks)

Night Latches are usually fitted to the top of wooden doors. On the outside of the door is a Rim cylinder where the key is inserted and internally there will be a night latch which is hand operated. Night latches come as standard, Deadlocking, Non Deadlock, British Standard and Roller Ball Night latches. They all have their benefits and drawbacks and if you need advice on this call Lockforce Locksmiths Ashton-Under-Lyne. A key feature is that Night latches will lock automatically when the door is closed which makes them handy for automatically locking the door however this can also be a negative due to being locked out accidentally.

Winter-Proof Your Multi-Point Locking Mechanism with Lockforce Locksmith Ashton Under Lyne

In Ashton-Under-Lyne and Tameside, winter can be tough on multi-point locking mechanisms, posing challenges due to extreme temperatures and environmental factors. The cold weather causes metal components to contract and become brittle, leading to stress within the locking system especially when not aligned correctly (when the handle is difficult to push up).

If the handle is difficult to push up and the multi point locking mechanism is grinding against the frame when the handle is lifted the resistance may result in breakage. At Lockforce Locksmith Ashton under lyne in the winter months broken gearboxes and multi point locking mechanisms become a much more common issue that can easily be avoided.

To safeguard against these problems, it's essential to prioritize regular maintenance and proper care, including lubrication and weatherproofing and realigning the multi point locking mechanism against the keeps in the frame.

Addressing these concerns proactively enhances the resilience of multi-point locking mechanisms during winter, ensuring optimal functionality and minimizing the risk of breakage or failure in cold weather conditions.

For expert realignment on your UPVC multi point locking mechanism and to avoid broken gearboxes, reach out to Damon at Lockforce Locksmith Ashton Under Lyne.

Winter-proof your locking mechanism with professional care today!

Lock Repairs In Ashton Under Lyne - 12/11/23

Lockforce Locksmiths Ashton Under Lyne were busy this week with a few failed door mechanisms which were probably due to the colder weather. As the colder nights come in, the mettle in the gearboxes (In upvc doors) can become a little brittle and this with doors that are stiff to close can cause them to break or jam. As a local Ashton Under Lyne locksmith we had three of these types of jobs in the local area. Once the doors are in alignment you have a much more less chance of this happening. Keep warm and safe
