My front door handle has become very loose now, most probably due to its age and use!
I thought I could just leave it until the other day when I went to leave the house and 'pull the lever' up to engage the mortice locks' as I left the house. But when I tried to get back in, because the handle has become so loose it did not engage the locks properly and even when unlocked I could not get into my house!!!! arrrrhhhhh
After a few calm minutes and gently trying it over and over I made it back into the house! phew!
I don't want to leave this until I am totally locked in/out, is there anyway of helping this without having to replace the door?
