Locksmith call out in Sevenoaks, TN13 - December 2022
Lockforce Locksmith Sevenoaks were called by a client who requested our assistance with an office front door that was slamming shut. The head rail cover plate was removed to enable access to the door closer unit as it was apparent that it was a door closer problem. The door closer's adjustment screws were adjusted to their fullest capacity, but no improvement was made to the door's closing action. It appeared that this unit had failed. The replacement of this door closer mechanism will require the attention of a team of door fitting professionals, as the door will probably have to be taken down. We weren't able to fix the problem ourselves by we are hope our diagnosis and report will be useful for the appropriate professional contractor who is set to be engaged.

Callout for lock out in Sevenoaks, TN13 – 03/11/2021

On inspection, the euro style lock was fitted to a beautiful wooden door and the lock itself, partially obscured by an Escutcheon plate. We discussed the issue with the client and we agreed that since his wife was going to return home within the next 2-3 hours (with a key) and also given that he had a very comfortable office in his front garden, that he work there and ‘wait it out’ for the relatively short while, rather than incur unnecessary cost in gaining entry in a destructive manner.
Doors and lock repairs for property in Sevenoaks, TN15 - 22/10/2021
Lockforce Locksmith Sevenoaks received a late afternoon call reporting two doors with problematic locks/handles. Client asked if I could replace the two locks. The first issue was a tight turning of the key in the lock, which the client couldn’t manage. We were able to open the lock and establish that the twin door set’s alignment was off – therefore, not a lock problem. We adjusted the alignment and was able to get the lock functioning smoothly again (so no need to replace the lock). We suggested to the client that they get a key cover, to give the key ‘more bulk’, which would offer a greater grip and therefore, easier use. The second door’s handle set, which the client had tried to work on, it transpired, that the sash-bolt had come away from its mounting in the gearbox of the MPL unit and was jamming the operation of the handle. We were able open the door by means of a spreader tool but from there we discovered that the screw holding the sash-bolt in its place, was missing which had led to the problem. Fortunately, we had a longer screw in my tool box, which we were able to cut down to the required length, re-fit the sash-bolt and make the handle set operable again. The door’s lock was also sticking/hesitating when being operated, which the client was prepared to have changed. It was established though, that the alignment of this door, too, was off, leading to the knock-on problem with the lock. The relevant adjustment to the alignment was carried out and the lock became fully functioning again. No need to replace the lock. Both problems dealt with at a third of the cost of replacing the locks.
Fixing floppy door handle in Sevenoaks – TN15 - 16/10/21
Lockforce Locksmith Sevenoaks received a call from a client who mentioned that their kitchen door handle had that ‘flopping’. We were told a handyman had attended already but could not resolve the issue so they wanted to call upon the services of a professional. On inspection we found that the problem emanated from the gearbox of the MPL within the door. A component internally had worn or broken and the handles no longer returned properly to their position once being opened. In addition, the Euro lock itself also seemed trapped in the gearbox. On stripping the unit, we discovered that the gearbox itself appeared to have been fitted marginally too low in the door itself and the cylinder was resting on the base of the cutout in the door frame, thus, despite being unscrewed, it was simply friction that was preventing it from being removed from the door & gearbox. We routed out a tiny bit of the door where the Euro had been resting and replaced the MPL itself, which allowed the cylinder to be re-fitted easily. New door handles, updated to white finish, at the client’s request. The existing cylinder was in perfect working condition, so was cleaned up and lubricated and re-fitted. The client was very happy with the new, updated finish and functioning.
