CALL A LOCKSMITH FOR WINDOW LOCK MECHANISMS REPAIR
It is difficult to imagine something more convenient in terms of maintenance and use than a plastic window. UPVC products keep the house warm and cosy. You’ll hardly ever find a building where this modern miracle doesn’t exist. It would seem, there can be nothing more reliable than a plastic structure.
But over time, everything eventually wears out. Lock mechanisms and plastic profiles are no exception. Are you experiencing fogging and draft coming through the window? Then it’s time to call the repairman, and the sooner, the better.

But in any case, we will do everything to keep your home secure and ensure the safety of your loved ones.
Any mechanisms periodically fail. Some can be repaired; others can only be replaced. Locks for UPVC profiles come in many shapes and design. We note right away: budget mechanisms, as a rule, are not worth repairing, since the effort doesn’t justify the result. They should be changed to a new lock device. Why do window mechanisms fail? For many reasons, such as the following:
- Lack of lubricant in the lock.
- Window has not been adjusted for a long time.
- Excessive force while closing or opening.
- Break-in attempt.
- Improper maintenance and operation.
- Worn out fittings.
Sophisticated lock models can be repaired by a qualified locksmith. We recommend against disassembling or repairing the locking device on your own, as this can lead to the complete failure of the UPVC components.
It is also dangerous to contact amateurs because the would-be master can damage an unfamiliar locking mechanism.

The replacement of protective fittings on already installed UPVC windows is carried out in several steps:
- Tempered glass is inserted into the UPVC frame. A special protective film can be used as an alternative.
- Next step is to open the transom and check the manufacturer’s stamp on it. Accessories from another company will not work because the holes for fasteners must match.
- Dimensions of the existing fittings must be measured and recorded. Burglar-resistant window locks hardware is selected based on the data.
- Protective caps, as well as the pin installed in the upper hinge, are removed to take off the window.
- Sash is laid on a flat surface; all accessories are removed with a screwdriver.
- Next, the fittings are taken off the frame. At this point, it is a good idea to sketch a layout of the main window mechanisms so that nothing is confused when installing new locks. Mark the places of contact points on the frame and sash.
- Corner mechanisms must be placed first. The main drive is attached next. Its fixation is carried out in the open position. If the accessory rail is greater than the required length, then the excess end is cut off on one side.
- All parts must be lubricated with oil before installing sash and frame hinges.
- Correct operation is checked after hanging the sash on the frame. If it requires force to turn the handle, there might be an error in measurements. It will be necessary to dismantle the parts, re-measure and install them again. Otherwise, the last step is to put in place additional support points and an overlay on the handle. If the window opens and closes freely, the installation is complete.
Before installing the locking mechanism, you need to decide on its resistance class which affects the complexity of the work.
Burglar-proof systems will work if you entrust the job to professionals that know how to install fittings and adjust them, understand all the subtleties of process and can recommend you a rational solution.

Frequently asked questions
Are your locksmiths local?
Yes! All our locksmiths actually live within the locality they serve or close enough for a short commute. Not only does this mean they can be with you quickly (usually within 30 minutes) but it also means you are helping to support a local business rather than a company which has no interest in your community.
How can I pay for work?
We accept all major debit and credit cards and will also take cash on site. Payment can be made via a card terminal carried by our locksmiths or payments can be made by calling our head office and a receipt will be given.
What should I do while waiting for the locksmith to arrive?
Please make sure we have a valid contact number for you (mobile/neighbours landline, etc) and that you are able to answer the phone in case the locksmith has problems locating you. Please don’t tamper with the lock yourself as you could cause additional damage which may prove expensive to repair.
