The placement and angle of the locking prevents the door from being lifted up and also prevents the door being pulled out. Because as the door is being lifted it has to slide up and in along the pin of the lock. So the more upward pressure that is exerted on the door the tighter it gets in the locking engagement.
This Lock is easy to install, there are two fixing screws provided in the pack and the backing card in the pack doubles up as an installation template. By drilling another receiver hole in the bottom rail, the door can be locked in the partially opened position to allow for ventilation or control the movements of a pet or child.
There are no keys required !
As most extra locks that are fitted to sliding doors are fitted on the inside and can only be opened from the outside, so the spring loading device on this locking device is enough to secure the door which is the most vulnerable door on the majority of Irish homes.
Don’t take chances with your home security!

Once the key is entered in the ignition, the vehicle identity’s the key electronically and allows the vehicle to start.

Quiet often customers are amazed to realise that the “Chubb” brand is no longer available when considering security locks for their property.
Chubb was Ireland’s most recognized name for high security door and window locks for the banking, residential and commercial market for the last century & more .
With a 200 year history of UK manufacturing, Chubb Locks have been the preferred choice of locksmiths to supply and fit for many years. When it came to insurance underwriters the Chubb range of British Standard 5 Lever Mortice Locks was the first choice for insurance approved locks.
Fact is since August 2010, due to brand licensing agreements, the Chubb brand will no longer appear on lock products we sell.
Its really a matter of Brand identity, most of the original “Chubb” locking devices are still available, but under the UNION or Yale brand.
This means that if someone wishes to replace a Chubb lock or wants to continue to benefit from the quality and security provided by Chubb technology, they should contact us directly and we will advise them as to the best alternative or similar product.

Burglars have discovered just how easy it is to bypass a standard type euro cylinder. It doesn’t matter how many hooks or dead bolts you have on your multipoint door lock, the weakest on most venerable part is the key cylinder mechanism. Once the cylinder is bypassed the multipoint lock can be unlocked by simply pushing down on the door handle.
