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 keepers can be used to ensure your door is locked properly with a low probability of any unauthorized person accessing your home. Multipoint locks can be used for both your UPVC and wooden doors and provide one of the most secure ways of locking your doors. A multipoint lock is made up of a variety of locking devices which include: roller, hooks, bolts and tongues. With these different parts, which wear and tear day in day out, one or more of these components may fail to function thus compromising your home security.

Due to friction, a keep also wears more quickly than the other parts of the lock and may need replacement.
