Why it could be dangerous to replace a lock yourself
To install a new lock, you must first remove the old one. However, the dismantling of a locking device requires practical experience, certain skills and specialized equipment. Unskilled lock replacement carried out on one’s own can lead to damaging the door leaf – it will acquire scratches and dents, and it will be skewed.
All these defects require immediate repair, since they can damage the new lock – the device’s internal mechanisms are very sensitive to the correct geometry of the door leaf.
In the end, it may become necessary to replace the lock again – and, possibly, the entire door.
Any lock may break down. Unfortunately, this almost always happens at the worst possible moment. In order to prepare yourself and avoid problems, write down the phone number +000 0000 0000 of a specialist in door lock replacement on your entrance metal door.
