Many multipoint locks are reaching the end of their life cycle. Over the coming months and years, these older locks are expected to fail, creating opportunities for tradespeople in the security sector and helping to generate replacement sales for merchants.
Some tradespeople may consider multipoint locks time-consuming to replace, because there are so many variations and a number of different measurements must be matched in order to ensure the lock is properly aligned. However, a number of multipoint locks on the market now have innovative adjustment features. This means that the lock can easily be lengthened or shortened to save time and ensure a perfect fit.
If your customers are buying a multipoint lock, why not ask them if they have considered offering their customers a whole door makeover? Replacing a multipoint lock is an ideal opportunity to upgrade other door and security features, including handles, letterplates, letterplate restrictors and cylinders. TS007 Kitemarked 3-star cylinders offer the highest resistance against known criminal methods of cylinder attack, enabling tradesmen to offer a robust security solution and provide their customers with additional peace of mind.
