New Year Same Locks
It’s now 2023 and we are in the new year. However, in Telford and around the Country the temperatures remain cold. Your Locks and gearboxes remain the same as the previous year and your locks may not be snap safe locks. Your locks are affected by temperature changes, and this may cause problems that come at a high cost to fix. Don’t shy away as your Locksmith in Telford, Lockman247 can provide a solution.
Door realignment is one thing that can be affected by the cold temperature. People don’t take into consideration the door frame when it comes to these extreme temperatures. In the cold, the door frame has the potential to contract, leading to a bad fit between the lock installed and the door itself. This causes the door to be realigned.
Continuous pressure being push and applied to open your door is normally bad. However, when the door isn’t aligned properly and you’re forcing the handle up, this will cause big damage to your door while its being used. If the door is not aligned properly, forcing the handle up will cause big damage to the gearbox. To fix this would cost around 200 pound and it’s not something you want to be paying for at the start of the new year after a Christmas break or holiday.
