Multi point mechanism also known as a gearbox is the main part of all UPVC, composite doors and drives the hooks and bolts. The lock or cylinder is a separate item to this part. This is the part that the handles operate. If your door has dropped or has become hard

to use then this will be the part that is effected, These parts today are often replaced and not repaired. You need a good deal of training to be able to deal with the fitting and adjustment of these parts, so its best to always use a locksmith for the replacement. Never try it yourself as it will cost you more money when you make the situation worse and the locksmith has to spend hour sorting out your issue. Normally these can be opened and replaced within the hour. They cost anything from £28 to £250 depending on make and model.

Mortise Door Lock - Common in wooden doors!
Mortise lock Taylors Locksmiths Logo, branding, Gateshead Locksmith Service

These mortise locks are a pain for locksmith to deal with, most of us hate dealing them as they are difficult to work on, they are extremely hard to pick open with a very high skill level required. It takes around 3000 hours 

of practice to be able to turn up to a random door with no lock brand ID and to be able to use speciality tools to open these locks. The tools alone are in the £1000s of pounds for all the different variants to buy. Then add in the fact we are on our knees for up to an hour or more in the cold, dark wet, with a customer that wants to be in fast. It all adds pressure as we are listening for small scrapes and clicks inside the lock. For this reason most locksmiths will charge £80 plus for entry. But expect to pay around £120 to £180 for entry and new lock fitted. Once the door is open the locksmith then may have to work on the wood, resizing the mortice hole and using fillers, paints etc.
