A few door lock maintenance tips
Locks do not fail overnight. Years of neglect and rough use can impact the structural integrity and functioning of a locking system. Locks, like other mechanical devices, require regular maintenance to perform their role flawlessly. Most locks have a service life of seven years that can be cut short if the property owner fails to care for the locking system.
Monitoring your locking system is no rocket science. Below are some simple yet effective tips to ensure your locks work flawlessly for years to come.
Check and adjust strike plates and screws at regular intervalsMake sure at least one screw securing the top hinge to the door frame is long enough to link the door to the framing around it. To increase break-in resistance, add a long screw (measuring at least three inches) to each hinge. The long screw should be located close to the center of the wall.
Check your deadlatch and deadbolt at regular intervalsModern locks have an important built-in security feature that prevents the deadlatch from falling into the strike plate. The security feature won’t work if the deadbolt is not properly aligned with the strike plate. Check for broken deadlatches at regular intervals, as they’re one of the most common reasons behind lock failures. When you close the door, the deadbolt should operate freely and its hole should be deep enough to allow the bolt to extend freely.
Clean and lubricate locks regularly
Before starting to clean your lock, go through the manufacturer’s instructions. While some manufacturers warn against using anything else other than a damp cloth, others are okay with using a mild detergent. Never use petroleum-based products or abrasive cleaners.
After cleaning your locking systems, do not forget to lubricate them. Use dry lubricants such as Teflon or Graphite lubricants to lubricate your locks. Spray a few drops of the lubricant onto the keyway. Next, insert the key inside the lock and move it in and out multiple times. For more thorough cleaning and lubrication, remove the lock from the door to apply lubricant to the latch.
