    I want to upgrade the locks of every exterior door of my property. What type of locks should I have fitted if I want ones that are more secure than most but not necessarily too expensive either?

    Asked by Carol on 17th Aug 2020

    Bedroom door is stuck shut and I can’t open it from the outside. I’m not on the side with the latch visible so I can’t open it that way. Can I open the door without damaging it? It’s just a standard wooden door with a lever latch handle and I can lower the handle but the latch inside isn’t moving. Help!

    My porch door won't lock, it is a double glazed upvc door only fitted a year ago. The handle lifts up but it seems like it is sticking so I can't turn the key. Does anyone know how to fix it cheaply?

    My front door’s lock has become very stiff recently when I try to turn the key in it to unlock it. However, it doesn’t seem to bad when locking the door. I’d like to solve this soon so I don't get locked out. It seems to have gone worse over time and is now consistently stiff, despite the door and lock only being a few years old. Is there anything I can do to make the lock a bit looser? Or is it more likely that I need to replace the door’s lock? If anyone has any ideas for what could have caused this, please let me know – as I don’t want any repeats of this in future.

    Hello all I have a hollow bedroom door currently, which I would like to add a lock to. Is this possible to install, or would I need to replace the door for this? Is there any adjustments I could make to a hollow door to enable a new lock to be fitted?
