Our lock was faulty and the technician from Leftway Locksmith came out to Finedon within an hour of my call! Great service! He also adjusted the door and lubricated all the hinges and moving parts. He adjusted it so that it doesn't squeak anymore! He installed a new and safer anti-pick, anti-drill cylinder with 5 keys, guaranteed for a year. He explained everything to us and was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. On top of that, very reasonably priced! 100% recommend Leftway Locksmith!

Composite door lock repair services

Modern composite doors are renowned for their quality, durability, and aesthetics. They provide heightened security against burglars, but only if the multi-point lock, hinges, and handle are correctly maintained. These items are repairable if they exhibit malfunctioning symptoms, and can be replaced if defective or broken beyond repair.

Composite door multi point locking mechanism
Multipoint composite door locking mechanisms

Our wide range of locksmith services includes the servicing, repair, and replacement of the multi-point locking mechanisms installed on modern Composite doors. Usually, the lock is composed of three distinctive sections: top case, centre case or gearbox, and lower case.

The top case, if is malfunctioning, usually needs lubrication, and in some instances, it won’t engage because the door is out of alignment. There are also situations when the keep on the frame requires adjustment, either because the door started to warp, or the seals on the frame are worn. In extreme cases, if is broken and beyond repair, it will require a replacement top section.

The center case, gearbox, or gearing, as is commonly called, is the most common part of the multi-point locking mechanism to break. This is due to the excessive force required to lift the handle when the Composite door is difficult to lock or unlock. This part is repairable, and if beyond repair, it can be replaced with a suitable replacement Composite door lock gearbox.

And finally, the lower case. As with the top case, if is malfunctioning, the correct steps need to be taken to address the issue. Ultimately, if you are not confident repairing it, a Composite door specialist is the correct person to fix it. This can save you ££££’s, compared to the cost of a replacement composite door.

1 star cylinder lock
Cylinders

Cylinder locks fitted to composite doors are part, but distinctive from the locking mechanism. They have the role to double lock the mechanism, once the handle is lifted. They can be key to key, where on both sides the key actuates the lock. Also, thumb turn, where the key actuates the external side of the lock and the little handle or knob, the inner side.

The most common defect in a cylinder lock is when the cam twists and the key cannot be removed in a locked position. Other common issues are sticking or broken keys, loose cylinders, or jammed locks. The good news is that your trusted local composite door lock repair specialist can fix them all.

Composite door handle
Handles

Composite door handles can come in various shapes, colors, and configurations. While the color and shape styles are close to the infinite, the configuration can be broken down into two main categories: lever-lever and lever-pad. A separate mention needs to be given to modern pull bars and pull handles.

In terms of security, there are standard handles, PAS 24, Secured by Design, and 2 stars, to name a few. While modern composite door handles are durable in time, over time they exhibit issues, such as creaky handles, broken springs, worn spindle, and worn plastic washers.

For any of the above issues, contact us for a swift composite door handle repair service, often carried out in one visit, on the same day. We can also install high-security handles, and change configurations from lever-lever to lever pad, or vice versa.

Composite door hinge
Hinges

The hinges on your composite door play a vital part in the security and correct functioning of the door. If they are worn, broken, or not adjusted correctly, it will inevitably lead to problems. The handle can be difficult to lift, because the hooks or the shoot bolts will not engage in the keeps, or the door will rub on the frame.

Composite door hinge issues, if left unresolved, can lead to lock failures, or even damage to the seals and the much dreaded composite door warping issue. Have them adjusted or repaired professionaly, and it can save you from more costly repairs, such as having the mechanism replaced.

With Leftway Locksmith, there is no set price or call-out fee. The price is established after a short discussion over the phone, once the locksmith has an idea what the requirement or the issue is. In some cases, a survey is required which is free, followed by a free quote.

Composite door locks work by shutting the door, and the latch engages in the keep. This keeps the door shut. In order to double lock it, the handle needs to be lifted, and the key or thumb turn, to be rotated in to locked position.
