We can’t guarantee that a door latch stuck in a retracted position can be fixed all the time but it can be replaced for sure. For example, if you’ve found your door bolt stuck in locked position, we are here to help.

Types of locks that can get stuck: 

  • Lock Cylinder Rims aka Yale Locks

    If your cylinder rim lock (Yale lock) is stuck, broken, or malfunctioning, our locksmiths can repair or replace it. We strive to repair rather than replace your lock, to keep costs as low as possible. If your lock is beyond repair, we will most likely replace the barrel. Of course, this is less costly than replacing the entire lock unit, including the lock case. But, in case you prefer to have everything replaced for a better security level, we will be able to conduct that upon request. 

  • Mortice and Sash Locks

In case your mortice lock is broken or defective, our locksmiths can fix or replace it. Typically, mortice locks fail to vandalism, such as a vandal inserting super glue or another foreign body into the lock. There are many cases like this in Clapham. Luckily, in most cases, we can help. In certain cases, the lock may be twisted or destroyed as a result of an attempted burglary in which they attempted to kick the door in.

  • uPVC Locks

If you have a broken or malfunctioning UPVC door lock, it is critical to test the locking mechanism while the door is open. In many cases, if the bolts slip into the locked position while the door is open, the door may require re-aligning. More than that, if the mechanism fails, the door must be unlocked by a Locksmith. The mechanism is also known as a multi-point lock or MPL. In most circumstances, the multi-point lock must be replaced. Clapham Locksmith London can also arrange for UPVC door repair and upkeep, which includes fixing the broken lock/mechanism. This way, the door will be fully functional again and it will appear like new.
