Old style GU multipoint – Upvc multipoint opened and replaced in Nottingham

Had a crazy busy day today, in between different lock changes and a new install I had to do a failed multipoint. A old style gu unit had cracked its cam and was as almost always in the locked position. The key was still able to throw the bolt so with a little bit of breathing room I was able to slide a roller and spring the bolt.

The strip was in good order I did try to get the landlord to upgrade to a better locking mech but he wasn’t willing, profit over security I guess so I serviced the strip and replaced the gearbox.

The top hinge was broken so replaced that and corrected the alignment and also changed the handles the old brass ones fitted had no washers and the handles were barely hanging on.
