Door Keeps are metallic pieces that are attached to the door frame with slots for the locking mechanism to fit into. They maintain a tight lock on your door, preventing intruders from entering your home. To lock your door, simply lift the door handle, which will activate the locking mechanism. To open it, just pull down on the handle to release the latch and unlock your door. At Lockmaster, we offer a wide range of UPVC Door Keeps, including strike plates, dead bolts, hook boxes, hook keeps, roller keeps, and much more! Read More
You have an option between a 1-piece-keep and a 3-piece-keep. A 1-piece-keep features a lengthy metal strip that runs the length of your frame. A 3-piece-keep consists of a central piece in which the centre box locks into; a hook and roller keep from top to bottom (depending on your multipoint lock).
You may reuse the same 3-piece keep for many locks by simply rearranging the pieces to accommodate your new locks. Because there are multiple placements, the measurements from each lock may differ from one another. If your door is tall, you will need a lengthy lock to allow for greater spacing between your hooking points and hook keeps for complete security.
Manufacturers frequently purchase doors and install the proper pieces of glass, locks, knobs, and hinges as specified by their clients. The manufacturer, however, determines the type of lock that is in place. There are both regular door holds and a more specialised Door Keep designed specifically for certain locks. If you are looking for a specific Door Keep, please contact one of our exceptional staff members who will be happy to assist you.
Please have your Multipoint Door Keep brand name on hand. Keep this information accessible since it will be the first item our employees ask for when determining the correct Door Keep for your door. Look at the side of your lock to determine the brand of your door.
As an integral part of the locking mechanism, a uPVC Door Keep is critical in allowing the door to latch as it closes. Typically, they specify how the door operates and how to utilise the door locking mechanism. A uPVC Door Keep is made up of a latch bolt, strike plate, hook keep, roller keep, latch plate, deadbolt keep and striker plates.
How Do You Replace Your Door Keep?
A Door Keep doesn’t break often since it’s basically a solid piece of metal. They have minimal moving parts. Multipoint keeps don’t move as part of their standard operation, but can be adjusted. However, with time and with some wear and tear, your Multipoint Door Keep will need to be replaced. All you have to do to replace your Door keep is screw it into place and you’re done!
If we identify the correct lock and Door Keep, the screws will almost certainly go into the same hole. And, because it’s a uPVC frame, screwing it through the plastic couldn’t be easier. The first step is to determine the brand of your specific lock so we can provide you with the most appropriate multipoint accessories and keeps. Because multipoint accessories and keeps are tied to the lock type and brand as well as the plastic profile, you must be certain of your lock brand before changing any of the components.
Each lock brand has its own style and characteristics. The name or logo on the faceplate of your lock will help you identify the name of your brand. Remember that the Multipoint Door Keeps must match the multipoint door lock. In other words, for your door to operate effectively, the lock and the keep must be perfectly matched.
We sell uPVC Door Keeps from major manufacturers like ERA and GU at low prices. If you’re looking to replace your Lockmaster Replacement Latch Keep or Lockmaster Replacement Roller Keep, please contact one of our exceptional staff members who will gladly assist you.
