As with any good locksmith in Didcot, ACG Services are experts on their mortice locks to their multi-point locking system.  But for many people knowing the difference between locking systems it isn’t always so obvious.

So here is a handy guide to commonly used locks in Didcot.

Key operated multi-point locking system
This is the locking system you are likely to have on a uPVC door. The system will have a minimum of three locking points, at the top and bottom of the door plus the middle latch, which lock simultaneously with the turn of the key and/or lift of the handle.

A Five-Lever Mortice Lock
A Didcot locksmith will generally recommend fitting a wooden door with a five-lever mortice lock to ensure your safety.  These locks with the British Standard Kitemark BS3621 comply to insurance conditions.  The lock is small so less wood is removed keeping the door strong and the five anti-pick levers make it tricky to sabotage even with a drill.

A rim automatic deadlatch with key-locking handle
If you have this locking system on your Didcot door the door handle will be on the inside of the door attached to the surface of the door.  The exterior of the door will simply have a ‘Yale’ type key hole. The system will lock automatically when the door is closed.

If you still don’t know which locks you have on your Didcot home, don’t worry about the vocabulary – just call ACG Services and let our experienced, professional locksmith get on with the job.

Sorted out stuck door lock in three minutes."Arrived within 20 minutes from phone call at 6.55 pm in the evening.
