UPVC door with "Wind Up" mechanism for lock

Postby AjayK46 » Sat Aug 11, 2018 9:41 am

My current front door has what I believe is called a "Wind Up" lock mechanism where you have to rotate the key through 360 degrees several times to engage the multi point lock. Is there any way to upgrade / convert this to a much more modern system to engage the bolts without changing the whole door?
