What to Know About Residential Multipoint Locks

One of the best security locking systems is a Multi-Point locking system. 
They are designed with a live bolt and deadbolt, as well as multiple hook and compression bolts. 
Generally to operate you will need to lift the door handle a bit and turn the key. 
Then you are set. These are offered in various designs to suit your needs.

Just like anything mechanical, over time it can wear down or malfunction in some way.

If the door and its frame move out of position, the locking system is no longer in proper alignment. 
This usually happens with older doors with hinges that need replacement. 
Since you need to raise the door handle to operate the system, if you notice the handle sagging or out of position at all, it indicates over usage and need for attention. 
In any lock system, the key can have problems turning or sticking. 
With a multi-point locking system, this can mean a less secure system or the potential that you could be locked out.
