When you are trying to choose which sliding patio door locks will work the best for your home, there are a few different things to consider. Safety in your home is very important. Whether you live alone, have kids, or any other circumstances, you will want to make sure that your home is as secure as you can make it. These days crime rates are through the roof and the need for home security is at an all time high. By taking the time to think about all of the different factors you will be able to select the right door locks for your patio door, one of the classic entry points a burglar would use, due to it normally being hidden at the back of the house and not always very secure. The first thing you want to do when you are selecting a patio door lock is consider all of the different types that are available. There are the traditional latch types which are located on the handle of the door, whether of metal or upvc. These typically have a lever that can be pushed up or down to secure the door.
If your door only uses the one hole it is possible to carefully dismantle the gearbox and sway over the sheared gear for the redundant gear and then re-assemble for an easy fix. This can save you £75 for a new strip so is well worth trying. Its a secret tip that a lot of locksmiths would prefer the customer did not know! Once the lock is repaired and back in the door you may find that door still fells stiff on locking. This is probably the reason your door failed in the first instance and it needs to be resolved before you continue regular use of the uPVC door. Usually an adjustment on the top hinge of the door, winding the screw a few turns to pull the top corner of the door up and inwards will solve the issue. Some more misaligned doors will require keeps in the frame adjusting to ensure the lock is meshing smoothly without forcing. You should never be forcing the handle up when locking the door, if it does not work smoothly you will be applying unnecessary force and ultimately break the lock again. I hope that this quick guide is of use and saves you all some money, however if you feel anything here is out of your depth or you lack the required tools to do so, please call a local locksmith to help.
