uPVC Door Lock Jammed - uPVC lock mechanism broken

If your uPVC door lock is jammed or you suspect any locking problem with your uPVC door, you should consider calling a locksmith. Only a specialist will be able to determine what’s the main lock issue and how it can be solved. So, if you are based in Clapham and need a professional uPVC locksmith to attend your location, don’t hesitate to contact Clapham Locksmith London at any time. 

Here are some important steps a locksmith will need to carry out before diagnosticating the problem:

  • Handle and barrel inspection:

First, he will try to insert the key into the lock and turn it as normal. If it does not turn or the lock is jammed, the problem is most likely with the barrel itself. After that, he will examine the doorknob. Secondly, the locksmith will locate the screws that keep the barrel in place and check if it’s loose. If it’s the case, he will tighten the screw and now the barrel should be held in place. At this stage, if that was the problem, you should be able to lock and unlock your door properly again. If the problem persists, the problem is most likely with your uPVC door mechanism.

  • Mechanism checks and tests:

If the key spins and clicks normally when the locksmith performs the tests, it means that your barrel is fine and the problem is with the uPVC mechanism. And, because each uPVC door has its unique gearbox, he must try and supply the same mechanism as the one you have installed. At this stage, the locksmith must try replacing it. So, replacing the mechanism itself is a difficult task that should not be attempted without prior preparation or knowledge. That’s why it is important to hire a professional locksmith to handle this work because doing it improperly might result in harm to the door itself and further complications. 

  • The quality of the previous locksmith installation: 

Another important aspect of the security of your house is the quality of the installation of your locks. So, if you have inexperienced locksmiths, there is a big chance that your lock won’t be fitted to the highest standard. More than that, after a short time, your locksmith might fail to open it and lead you to a lockout or a lockin situation.  Of course, nobody wants that.
