Frequently Asked Questions

A lock which does not operate as per its indented function. I.E difficult to turn the key within the lock or the bolt/hook fails to operate once the key has been turned.

Most old timber entrance doors are commonly fitted with nightlatch locks which are intended to secure the door. These are often used in conjunction with a 5 lever mortice lock to provide a higher level of security.

To determine the viability of repairing a UPVC door I strongly encourage that you firstly get in touch with a reputable, local locksmith who possesses the required knowledge and experience needed to undertake repairs of UPVC doors. At Delta Forge Locksmiths, I possess a wealth of knowledge relating to UPVC doors in addition to UPVC windows. My knowledge is supported by past experience working with the glazing industry along with the specialist UPVC repair training received from industry leading providers “MPL Locksmith training” one of the few providers in the UK to have their training supported and accredited by industry leading bodies such as City & Guilds and NCFE.

To fix a broken UPVC door lock it’s highly recommended that you possess the required understanding and experience of working with multi point locking mechanisms prior to attempting a repair. UPVC door locks contain many components with varying functions and without the correct knowledge, it can be easy to do more harm than good when attempting a DIY UPVC door lock repair. Doing so can often cost you more in the long term and potentially compromise security if not completed correctly. 

The cost to fix a lock is determined by two factors:

  • The component(s) of the lock which have failed and require replacement.
  • Is the repair an emergency outside of normal business hours or can an appointment be made for us to attend during the day? (I.e between 08:30am & 05:00pm)

At Delta Forge Locksmiths, my aim is to provide all customers with the best value solution by helping them understand the root of the problem and advising the most economical solution, in order to promptly reinstate security and safety.

A controversial question. To best answer it, you must also ask is the lock is integral to your homes security? If the broken lock is fitted to an externally accessible door/window or outbuilding and prevents people from entering your home/property, it would be reasonable to classify the broken lock as an emergency and I would advise contacting a reputable locksmith as soon as possible.
At Delta Forge Locksmiths, I take the safety and security of my customers very seriously. Which is why I operate a 24hr locksmith service. 
Depending on the situation you may have a couple of potential options available. If you find yourself accidentally locked out, you may be able to contact a familiar member or trusted friend who may have a spare key. If this option isn’t viable then we would recommend contacting a local, trusted locksmith for assistance. A competent locksmith should posses the ability to unlock a door or window. Locksmith utilise two core methods of gaining entry. 
The first should always be a non-destructive method, in which the locksmith will attempt to bypass the door lock through manipulation or by picking the lock open. Should this be unsuccessful and with the customers permission a locksmith will then  proceed to the next method, known as destructive entry. 
Now first it’s important to clarify that although the name of this method states the word “destructive” within its name, it does not mean that a locksmith will start ramming your door like a medieval siege. The destructive entry method is in fact a precision method of attacking and destroying specific components within the locks mechanism in order to open it. This method however will require the replacement of the lock, once entry has been achieved. 
Changing locks is a very common practice for a locksmith. The time required to change a lock is determined by the locksmiths level of knowledge of the various different types of lock available within the UK and European markets. For example, changing a cylinder lock within a UPVC door may only take 15 minutes or so to complete, whereas changing a deadlock or sashlock within a timber door could take up to an hour to complete. This is due to the potential requirement to carefully alter the mortice within the door (the pocket in which the lock is housed).
