Are your handles getting tighter to lift?
This can be the first sign of a failing multi-point lock, but this doesn't always mean that the actual lock has failed, More often than not this can be a sign of a poorly aligned door.
If this is caught early enough before the multi-point lock becomes damaged this can be relatively easily remedied by making a few slight adjustments to the door to re-align the lock to the keep (the part on the frame that the door locks into), Fort Cox Locksmiths & Access Control can have your lock operating almost like new again.
Even if your lock as already failed and the door is currently jammed we can open the door and repair the multi-point locking strip without damaging the door.
Upvc Window Locks
Is your UPVC window stuck locked shut? Does the handle move but the window still not opening? We can open and repair jammed windows and broken window locks as well as damaged hinges.
