Whats the difference between a keyed alike system and a Master key system ? Imagine a multiple occupancy house with 3 communal/public doors and 4 private bedrooms, you could have the communal doors working off one key (keyed alike) but the others would need to have individual keys which would mean the owner would need a total of 5 keys to be able to open all the doors.
With a master key system you could have one key that will open the communal doors and a bedroom door but it would not open the other bedroom doors however the owner would have one key which would open every door in the house, for further infomation or a free no obligation quote give Derek or Pam a ring at Locksmiths Widnes on 07967 778940.

Troubleshooting Guide UPVC Doors
We at Locksmiths Widnes quite often are asked to attend both Commercial and Domestic properties where there is a problem with a UPVC Door either not locking, jammed shut, or unable to close, some of these problems could be prevented and so we have put together this troubleshooting guide so customers can better identify what is wrong with their UPVC Door.
Five Main Components of a UPVC Door
There are essentially 5 main components to a Upvc door, beside the door itself there are the (A) Handles (B)Hinges (C) Euro Cylinder (D) Multipoint lock gearbox, Hooks and Rollers (E) lock Keeps.
On the next pages we will describe for our customers common problems that can arise with the individual components.
There are normally not many problems caused by door handles failing however we sometimes get a call to say that my door handles are loose or my door handles are spinning around
If you find that your door handles are loose then try and tighten the screws on the handle to see if that solves the problem, they can come loose over time, if this does not work then check the area where the handle meets the faceplate if its this part thats loose then you will need to replace the handles at some point before the handle comes away from the faceplate.
There are many different types of handles and sizes so the easiest way of replacing yours would be to take off one of the handles and take it to a shop that supplies handles to ensure you get the right size alternatively call a locksmith for a quote.
If your handles are spinning around on both sides of the door then this could indicate a problem with the multi-lock gearbox which you may need to replace again I would suggest calling a locksmith for a quote.
Locksmiths Widnes often get calls where the problem seems to be the Euro Cylinder which is found at the bottom of the handles and is the part where the key fits in, it is this part that locks everything in place. If you find that the key is getting difficult to put into the lock then check another key first preferably an original as it could be that one key is worn or has not been cut correctly, if this is the same then it could be that your euro cylinder needs replacing again it may be worth asking a locksmith for a quote to replace your euro cylinder.
If your door is locked and the euro cylinder is just spinning around then this would again indicate that your euro cylinder as failed and needs replacing again we would suggest getting a quote from a locksmith as the lock would need to be removed safely doing this yourself could possibly damage other parts of the multilock which cost a lot more to repair than the euro cylinder itself.
If the euro cylinder is not moving at all or not moving much then this could indicate a problem with the multi-lock gearbox we suggest getting a quote from a locksmith as the euro cylinder may need to be removed before checking the function of the multi-lock gearbox itself which may need to be replaced.
Upvc Door Hinges
Over time you may find that your door is catching the frame when closing your Upvc door this may be because the door has dropped. Basically Upvc doors are very heavy and over time the strain on the door hinges may cause the door to drop a few millimetres which can affect the function of the door.
To check if this is the cause look at the top corners of your door you should see a line where the door is jointed, now look at the frame again you should see a line where the frame is jointed as a basic rule these lines should match up, if the door line is lower than the frame line then your door has dropped.
If this is the case then you will need the door adjusting and possibly the hinges and keeps on the side of the door which accept the multipoint lock hooks and rollers, and please also bear in mind that if over time locking the door has become worse, then the probability is that your multipoint gearbox has suffered wear and tear and we would suggest that you replace this at the same time as adjusting your door.
Although the adjusting of doors appears easy when seen on youtube, believe me when I say it isn't otherwise why would you need installers and locksmiths. For example their are a number of different types of hinges including flag and butt hinges, the one displayed in the photo is a flag hinge and this can be adjusted to pull the door up/down and in/out. We would suggest because of the work involved getting a quote from a locksmith.
Multipoint Lock- Gearbox, Hook and Rollers
The above pictures show the components of a multipoint lock which are the gearbox,hooks and or rollers the gearbox is fitted inside the door where your handles go through, you don't actually see this once inside the door however it is the part that controls the hooks and rollers when you lift the handle they come out and when you push the handles down they go back in.
If the gearbox fails in the locked position then you will need a locksmith to open the door for you and replace the gearbox or the full multipoint lock. Quite often a combination of the door dropping and bad fitting of the lock keeps means that it becomes harder to lift the handle and lock the door, this puts more strain on the gearbox and eventually it will fail.
Occasionally but not very often it is the hooks and rollers that fail, if this happens and the door is in the locked position again you will need a locksmith to open the door for you and change the full multipoint lock.
If your door is becoming hard to lock or the handles are becoming harder to lift up, then
One way of checking if you multipoint lock is on its way out is by opening the door and whilst in this position lift the handles up, if this is easy then it could be that its just your door and or keeps that need adjusting. If however it is still hard to lift the handles then it would appear that you multipoint lock is the problem.
Multipoint Door Lock Keeps
Above is a picture of a Multipoint Door Lock keep which is for hooks and rollers, the hole is where a hook would fit and above this is where the roller would fit locking your door at multi points hence the name multipoint door lock.
If having checked your door is locking when open but is not working properly when you lift the handles when the door is shut the the likelihood is that the door has dropped and either that or the keeps need adjusting.
However occasionally screws can come loose so check the keep for any loose screws as it could be this that is affecting the non locking of your door, please remember that their are different types of lock keeps the one pictured above is a full piece keep however yours could be in two or more pieces.
If you're keeps need adjusting then Locksmiths Widnes advise getting a quote from a locksmith as this can be a time consuming task which if not done right could further damage you multipoint lock.
Here at Locksmiths Widnes we supply and fit locks to suit most budgets from standard secuoty locks to High security locks but we are often asked whats the difference, well its simply how much protection the lock provides, if you look at the picture I thnk you will be able to tell the difference between the high security lock and the standard security lock.
As methods of attacking locks have changed over the years locks have been developed to resist these attacks and protect your property, the standard security lock wil protect against picking and drilling but not snapping, whereas the Federal Ironguard 3 Star Cylinder has achieved the highest standards in the UK its a 3 star Diamond Grade Cylinder which wil protect from picking,drilling,snapping,bumping and it has a restricted key which means onloy the owner of the locks can get keys cut by using a ownership card which comes with the locks.
So if you need standard euro cylinders for your doors we can supply and fit them but if you needed something special then we can also quote for these locks, just give Pam or Derek a ring on 07967 778940 we are here for our customers.

Here at Locksmiths Widnes we work with both old and new locks, and its always a pleasure working with old church locks the one pictured probably was fitted on the door by a locksmith in 1879 and due to a lost key was taken off the door in 2018 by a locksmith who will get keys made for it using much the same methods eg being cut by hand.
These older locks were protected by a ward inside of the lock and the keys were cut to fit the ward hence the fancy cutting on old church keys.

Nightlatches most commonly known as a Yale Lock are normally found on wooden doors although Derek our Widnes Locksmith has seen them on upvc and composite type doors.
These locks normally as a rule come in two different sizes known as a backset which is 40mm and 60mm backsets however there is exceptions and one of these is the one pictured its a union non deadlocking nightlatch.
This union nightlatch has a 50mm backset and so standard locks will not work because the hole in the door that the locks cylinder fits through is in the wrong position, so key to this is to check the size of your nightlatch.
Alternatively if you would like a no obligation quote for replacing a nightlatch or other lock call Pam or Derek the owners of Lockkeys Locksmiths Widnes on 07967 778940 we are here for our customers.
