Do you need a Droylsden lock repair, lock replacement or upgrade? As the saying goes, "Nothing lasts forever" especially with locks as they see a lot of action throughout their lifetime depending on the amount of traffic a household has.

Common Lock Problems
As a Local Locksmith in Droylsden and Manchester we get a lot of similar issues and questions when customers contact us so we find by listing some of the common lock issues we get on a day to day basis it may help the customer identify or answer the problem.
My Key is Turning But Nothing Happens? This can happen with both Euro Cylinders and Mortise Deadbolts. When customers have this issue with Euro Cylinders it is usually because the cam is faulty or has become loose so is not engaging with the multi point locking mechanism. This is usually fixed by replacing the Euro cylinder and at Lockforce Locksmiths Droylsden we advise to use Anti snap cylinders as a standard. If its a sash lock or Mortise Deadbolt and the key is just turning it is usually because the mechanism has come loose and its not engaging with the levers inside. Again this could possibly be repaired but on most occasions Id advise to replace the lock.
Do Lockforce Locksmiths Droylsden Charge a Call Out Fee? No, Lockforce Locksmiths Droylsden never charge a call out fee and only charge customers for work completed. We also always provide a full quote before commencing any work and never add extra charges on such as labour. If a locksmith tries to charge you a call out fee or labour charges your best avoiding these companies.
My door is Hard to Lock can a Droylsden Locksmith help? This is a common issue I get however most people leave it to late until they force the handle one to many times and it breaks the gearbox (Multi point locking mechanism).
The symptoms are the upvc door is usually hard to lift up the handle (Sometimes having to hold the handle to lock the door) or difficult when opening and you need to use force to push the handle down. The cause is usually the Multi point locking mechanism is out of alignment with the frame and reeds realigning. Lockforce Locksmiths Droylsden usually do alignments when fitting new Anti snap locks
The handle is loose and the door wont open on My UPVC Door? This usually follows on from the above issue. The customer has usually forced the handle up or down and heard a cracking sound and the handle has now gone limp/loose. This is usually because the gearbox has broken and depending on the mechanism either the gearbox or the full MPL will need replacing.
Lockforce Locksmiths Droylsden have emergency overnight locks on the van and also carry gearboxes as were a mobile Locksmith so any issues or advise give us a ring

Door Lock Identification in Droylsden
Lockforce Locksmiths Droylsden speak daily with customer in Droylsden, Tameside and Manchester and as this is our full time job sometimes we forget that not everyone knows the names of common locks or sometimes gets them confused so below we though we would add some photos and common lock descriptions to help customers identify their lock;
Euro Cylinders In Droylsden
As a local Droylsden Locksmith I find euro cylinders as on of the most common cylinders in Manchester, Tameside and Greater Manchester. The Euro cylinder is usually a key and key or a key and Thumb turn (which are fitted to flats). They are typically fitted into UPVC and composite doors and the majority of cylinders are prone to a technique burglars use called Lock-snapping. This can be avoided by using Anti snap locks.
Mortise Locks In Droylsden
Mortise/Mortice Locks are found mostly in wooden doors and on some mettle doors and containers. They typically consist of a single bolt that extends from the middle of the door into the door frame. This is an old style of lock as its effective and what makes it easy to identify is that the mortise is fitted internally to the wooden door and the keyhole is hidden unlike the euro cylinder which is visible. Mortise Locks can come in 2, 3 and 5 Lever variations and if you have one fitted to your Front and Back doors they should be British Standard for insurance purposes.
Night Latch - Yale Lock In Droylsden
Another common Lock I see around Droylsden, and almost always fitted to wooden doors is the Night latch. This lock is commonly refereed to as a "Yale Lock" however that is the brand and not the actual locks name. On the inside of the door will be the casing which usually has a quick release handle and snib to hold the latch back or lock it into place. On the outside of the door is a round faceplate like a clock where you insert the key. The front section of the Night-latch can also come in a British Standard High Security Version of the Night Latch.
The most common types of Night-latches;
* Double Locking Night Latch
* Auto Deadlocking Night Latch
* Deadlocking Night latch
* standard Night latch (none-deadlocking)
As a local Droylsden Locksmith I have many Emergency Locksmith calls after customer are locked out due to forgetting their keys or sometimes, they walk outside and the wind blows the door shut.
How Safe Are pvc Doors?
As a Locksmith in Droylsden Tameside I often conduct free security assessments of people's homes, looking at easy access points for would be thieves and Burglars.
A lot of the people I speak with often believe having a composite or PVC door provides a good level of protection. The reality is that the doors have Multi point locking mechanism which are very secure however the locks (Euro Cylinders) are the weak spot on the door, and if you have a standard lock fitted, they can be removed from the door using a technique called Lock-Snapping. Once the lock has been snapped from your door the thieves can open the door and gain entry within 20 seconds, and its usually not that loud. As a local Locksmith in Droylsden and Tameside I've visited many homes after the locks have been snapped and usually the cars have been stollen.
There is an easy way to prevent this, by having Anti-Snap locks fitted to all the external doors on your home or business by a professional Locksmith. The Anti-snap locks strengthen the weak spot on the PVC and composite doors making gaining entry incredibly hard and meaning in the majority of times the Burglars will try an easier target.

Lockforce Locksmiths Droylsden were asked to change the front and back door locks for a lady living near Fairfield Estate in Droylsden following a messy breakup with her ex-partner. The Droylsden customer also advised she wanted the anti-snap locks fitted as there had been a few Burglaries recently in the local area with cars being stolen and she advised she really needs her car for work and also the thought of someone breaking in in the night was horrifying. I explained the different types of security lock and ratings such as Diamond secured, TS007 and Standard Anti Snap locks. The Fairfield resident eventually requested a 3*** high security Ultion fitting to both the front and back door. I noticed the back door was also very stiff to locks you needed to really lift the handle to make it close properly, which the homeowner advised has been like that for about 2 years. I then realigned the back door so it was easier to lock and unlock and advised her that the door had just dropped a few millimetres however sometimes that's enough to cause UPVC doors to become out of alignment between the locks and keeps in the door frame. Lockforce Locksmiths Droylsden didn't charge any additional fees for this service and the customer was happy with the added bonus of an easy door to open and lock for her little Furry friend.
New Gearbox Fitted in Droylsden, M43 - 21/05/2022
Lockforce Locksmiths Droylsden had a call after the customers front door failed to open on Sunnyside Road (Droylsden, Manchester). They wanted a local Tameside Locksmith and as we are based in the area so we got the call and were at the property within 20 minutes. The door gearbox had failed which had the typical signs such as the door handle was loose and when lifting it up or pushing it down there was no resistance. The key would turn in the euro cylinder and you can hear the lock locking and unlocking but the multi point locking mechanism is still engaged so the door won't open. We then used none destructive techniques which any decent locksmith should use to get entry without causing issues to the door or damage. Once the composite door was opened on the Droylsden home the MPL unit was removed and inspected. The gearbox had broken however this was a full unit so the full Multi Point Locking mechanism had to be replaced. This was done on site and a new Anti-snap lock was also fitted for the Droylsden home. The Composite door was also realigned to make the locking and opening smoother and to reduce the risk of pressure on the new gearbox and to give it a longer life.

Lockforce Locksmiths Droylsden attended a new job after a customer's lock just span but wouldn't lock the door. On arrival I removed the lock and found a faulty Euro Cylinder in the Droylsden home. A new Locks was supplied and fitted and the handles were very worn so after chatting with the homeowner Lockforce Locksmiths Manchester then fitted some New UPVC door handles.
