Did you know a quality door lock is one of the most common mechanisms that can enhance your home, office, or garage security?
Different situations and security needs require a specific type of lock that can address the need with no compromise. Multipoint locks and door keeps ensure your door is locked properly, reducing the risk of unauthorised personnel accessing your home.
What are Multipoint Locks and Door Keeps?
Multipoint locks can be used for both your UPVC and wooden doors and allow you to lock your doors securely. A multipoint lock is made up of a variety of locking devices, including:
These different parts wear and tear day in day out, meaning one or more of these components may fail to function - compromising your home security.
Door keeps are a metallic part fixed to the door frame, which the locking part of the lock goes into. It keeps the door closed securely, preventing intruders from gaining access to your property. Due to friction, a keep also wears more quickly than the other parts of the lock and may need replacing.

Did you know the position of the locking point matters?
When you are replacing any multipoint component, you also need to confirm the type of the locking points, since there are several combinations. Identify several critical details including the width of the faceplate, position and type of the locking part, distance from the pivot of the handles to the thumb turn, as well as the distance between the edges of the lock to the centre of the door handle.
The installation of the multipoint accessories or the keeps should be well balanced on the door to ensure smooth locking. With this in mind, it’s recommended that you purchase all the accessories from the same source where you bought the lock.
