If you're fitting new handles to your door, you may find that some markings, fixing holes or other unpleasant damage has been caused by the old handles. If your new handles wont cover up this damage, you may be looking for a way to conceal the damage, rather than replacing the door!
We've had these simple PVC plates made, which allow you to cover up markings and fixing holes already on your door, so that your nice new handles have a clean, undamaged surface to sit on
After many requests about what to do about markings, fixing holes and damage caused by original door furniture, we decided to have these simple little cover plates made.
Their purpose is to allow you to tidy up the area of your door behind your handles, so that you can replace the handles without revealing all that damage around your nice new ones.
Hi, guys. My name is Darrel, and I'm head of the tech team here at Locks Online. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. Now, we're putting these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products that we have to offer in hopefully a little bit more detail in the flesh, so to speak. And hopefully help you able to understand the product a little bit better.
So today, I'm going to show you this repair plate that we had made for us. And the idea of this particular repair plate is that if you're thinking at any time that you need to change the locking solution in a uPVC door, or perhaps you need to change the handles in a uPVC door, and that you might find that there's holes then or damage around the actual handle position, this product here is a plate that's been specially made to allow you to be able to make modifications, and therefore then allow you then to be able to cover up any damage that may happen around the actual handle itself.
So it just finishes it off, so to speak. So the idea would be, is let's assume that you were utilizing this particular handle here, it would allow you to be able to pop that over the handle like that, and as you can see there, if I can put off that up there, it just gives you that degree of protection all the way around. So if there is damage to the door, it kind of finishes it off in a little bit better than what it would be if there was holes in the door, etc.
So that's the idea of this particular type of plate. So it's just a modification that's been designed for what could be or what's normally a little bit of a troublesome issue if you've got a bit of damage around your handle, on your door, etc. Now, of course, as you can see here, the fixing centres and all have not been screwed out. You would need to adjust this to suit your particular type of application. So, feel free to cut this a little bit more. It's designed as a bit of a fix-it plate. So therefore then, the damage, if there is any on the door, around the handle, or you're thinking of changing the handle and the screw holes are in the wrong place, etc., then at least then, this gives you that degree of being able to make a job a little bit more presentable, etc., without having to change the door.
So it really has its uses in respects to that. The overall length of this, which is quite important, is just a smidgen under...well it's near as down to 300 millimetres. So you're going to be able to get yourself a degree of control and flexibility with that. And the width there as well, is 40 millimetres, whereas a typical handle here is only 30 millimetres.
So it's going to give you a little bit more of about 5 mil on either side of the type of handle or a typical handle on a multi-point door. So it's just a fixing plate, nothing really special. But if you're thinking that you're going to change yourself a handle or there's been damage caused and it looks a little bit unsightly, maybe this might look a bit more sightly than the holes or the damage.
