Replacing main door deadbolt lockset for a customer, who felt that the thumb press latch was becoming non-responsive. After investigating, we found that the thumb press latch was spoilt. So the customer opted to replace the whole lockset.
Panel 1 shows the removed components of the old lockset. Panels 2 and 3 show part of the replacement process. We discovered that the current dimensions were wrong for the old lockset. This was what had caused the thumb press latch to spoil faster than expected. So some alterations had to be carried out to the existing holes, in order to make sure that the latch could fit properly. If no modifications were done, the thumb press latch would spoil easily again.
The last panel shows the newly replaced lockset, together with the new keys. To put all customers at ease, we check the newly replaced lockset, to ensure that it can function smoothly without any hiccups.
Besides replacing main door deadbolt lockset, we can also replace main gate locksets, room doorknobs, BTO door locks and letterbox locks for newly renovated HDB houses.
