Have you just moved in, and want a fresh new look for your home? Or did you misplace your keys on that overseas trip? Whoops! No problem though – we can change them for you. Here are some of the most common reasons for replacing their doorknobs to the lever handle lock type.
1) Change of locks for a fresh look
We carried out replacing doorknob with lever handle lock in Ang Mo Kio. The owner wanted to change the locks, as she had just bought her home. After discussing with us, she finally opted to fit the room doors with these new lever handle locks. The top panel shows the old doorknob, also in the process of being dismantled. The bottom panel shows the back of the newly installed lever handle lock. This particular model operates with a key at the front, and with a small thumbturn at the back.
2) Change of lock due to misplacement of keys
This round doorknob was changed to a lever handle lock at Bedok. Our customers were new homeowners who did not have the existing keys. The previous owners had changed this round doorknob recently, but had unfortunately lost the keys for it. We felt this was a pity. These previous locks were high quality locks which are difficult to find locally.
After replacing the lever handle lock, we returned the old lock back to the customer, hoping that they could be salvaged and reused once more.
Our customer had misplaced their keys, and were looking for a cheaper and hassle-free solution. We suggested changing their locks to the round doorknob type. This is more cost-effective, and also doesn’t have the tendency to auto-lock like their lever handle counterpart.
3) Change of lock as previous owner gave wrong keys
For this lever handle lock replaced at Tiong Bahru, the customer had shifted into a new unit, and the previous owner had given them the wrong keys. We used a similar lock design which matched their existing lever handle locks for the replacement, so that the new lock would not look out of place.
4) Loosened doorknob which could not be fixed back
Our customer from Yishun contacted us to resolve their loosened doorknob issue. They were using a mortise lockset type, with a round porcelain knob. The handle constantly fell off, even when they tried to fix it back. After inspecting the existing handle, we realized that the screw thread of the handle had worn out. It would be better to change the handle instead.
We didn’t have the exact design for replacement, and showed them alternative designs that complimented the existing door. After discussing, they chose this square handle. As the handles had slightly different dimensions, we altered it so that it could fit properly.
