Clays Locksmiths Leicester were called out yesterday by a landlord who informed me that a tenanted property of his had a problem with the rear door. He informed us that the tenants could not lock the door and this was a security risk for them. Normally we would make this a priority job as they could not secure the property. On arrival I was taken through into the kitchen and noticed they had lots of boxes behind the door, and this was there Form of security stopping the door from being opened from outside. I noticed straightaway that the mechanism that operates the hooks and rollers on the door itself was not functioning. This is a common fault with double glaze doors and pointed out to the landlord that he needed a new gearbox which operated this system. I then asked him if he had difficulty in locking the door over the last few months and I knew what his answer would be straightaway. He informed me that it was getting more difficult week by week to lock the door and I knew this by the damage he had caused to the gearbox.
Clays locksmiths Leicester have written about this before where if you are having difficulty in closing your door it can be just a simple realignment. This normally costs about £60 to have your door corrected but it can save you a lot of money in the long run. So I knew straightaway that this would not just be an exchange of a multipoint locking system but also the door would need realignment as well. Luckily enough Clays locksmiths Leicester had a new multipoint Locking system on our vans which was compatible with his door. After stripping down he’s locking mechanism and attaching the new gearbox the door was functioning correctly in its open position. All I had to do now was to realign the door which in some cases can take a bit of time to get it spot on. In this case it took 10 to 15 minutes to get it locking perfectly.
