On arrival our Hyson Green locksmith stripped the handles and lock from the composite door and tested the Euro thumb turn, it was working but the cam had slipped but should not have caused this issue a closer insect in of the multipoint we discovered a wire was in the area of the key way that should not have been there, the wire was bent and must have worked it’s way out of the gearbox blocking the can from turning and wedged it’s self in tight.
The wire was a spring that controlled the dogleg that is activated by the cam in the cylinder inside the multipoint this spring provides a little resistance when turning the cam so you get feedback that the lock had been activated on or off.
We explained to the home owner in Hyson Green that although the multipoint was still functioning there was a option to replace with a new gearbox this was declined and just a new thumb turn lock was installed.
