UPVC lock mechanisms come in a variety of styles but they all share common operational systems. UPVC locks, which are also called multi-point locks, operate similarly regardless of the number or type of locking points such as rollers or hooks an bolts. Usually, they’re triggered by lifting the handle which activates the locking point and the entire system locks.

Symptoms of Lock Failure Which Require UPVC Lock Repair or Replacements
Usually, you’ll find signs that your UPVC lock system is failing such as extra pressure required to operate the handle, a loose or spinning handle, locked cylinders or the UPVC door only locks from one side.
Your UPVC door may not be locking properly if the handle is stiff or the key won’t turn fully which suggests that the door is not aligned. However, UPVC lock repairs can remedy the situation. But, when the door only locks from one side, you’ll need a lock replacement because the lock barrel won’t allow for the key to turn.
But, if the handle of the door is spinning all the way, and won’t allow the door to open, by forcing the internal components of the lock they can break. If the spindle breaks in the lock’s box then you require a UPVC lock replacement.
However, if you’re locked out or you’ve lost your keys don’t force the door open because you may damage the multi-point lock. Instead, call a specialist from CPPM Locksmiths for help. A locksmith can drill or pick the lock to open the door without causing any damage.
