As well as standard style euro cylinders we supply and fit Euro thumb turn locks ( this uses a key from the outside and a turn on the inside) and the latest Smart locks (forget keys and use your smart phone to unlock your door)
Upvc door lock mechanisms
In Upvc doors the lock mechanics is comprises of two parts the multipoint which is fixed into the door and the keep which is fixed into the frame when the door is closed and the handle lifted the multipoint engages using a combination of rollers, hooks and bolts into the keep creating a tight and secure seal. Over many years usage or misalignment issues the multipoint can develop faults and/or fail completely and replacement will be needed - LS Locksmiths stock every make and model of Upvc multipoint’s available and will be able to supply and fit in most cases in just one visit, should you be unlucky to have a Upvc door with a multipoint that is no longer in production we will be able to supply a system that will fit your door just the same so no need to replace the door.
Upvc window lock handles
Upvc window handles are a simple yet effective design to lock and unlock Upvc windows, a quarter turn either clock wise or anti clock wise depending on how the window is hung turns a spindle that works the Upvc window mechanism the handle body will almost always contain a small lock that stops the handle being turned keeping the window locked in the closed position. Window handles yet basic can last for many many years with out any issues but general wear and tear, maybe the loss of key or a spindle fault may leave the owner unable to lock/unlock or open/close. We always carry a range of different style and colour ways of Upvc handles and will be able to open and remove and replace with a new working version
