I am seeing an astonishing number of people who do not know how to correctly lock their multi point locking doors, they just pull them closed behind them when they go out – the door isn’t locked. Please remember to lock it properly by lifting the handle and turning your key in the lock, if you don’t it is just latched and easy for a burglar to bypass without damage giving issues with any insurance claim.
Attended to a lady in Crowborough after a locksmith’s failed attempts to open her upvc back door with a broken multipoint lock left in tears. We were able to open the broken lock, fit a new mpl gearbox and leave her overjoyed with a working upvc back door.
She thought she was calling a local Crowborough Locksmith she found on Google but it turned out that his company was in London, so do your research!
To avoid disappointment call a professional locksmith and security company, preferably a member of the Master Locksmiths Association.
