Letterbox lock for my front door
Hi can I screw a letterbox lock on the inside of my pvc door
5 Answers from MyBuilder Locksmiths
Hi. There are several ways to close the letterbox. You could purchase a letterbox Restrictor or even a letterbox blanking plate.
A screw may not hold it fully and may not look too appealing.

A SHASH jammer is also a cost effective way.

I personally use a letter box lock, it’s easy to lock and unlock from the inside but from the outside you can’t and also it can be tightened so that the letterbox is secure to your preference,

hi I would agree with the last answer but add if you are going to screw it don't use a screw that is too long as it will come out the other side of the door, and check you are not screwing into the glass if you have some in the door as the glass unit will be bigger than the bit you can see

- Need to change PVC front door as it can't take lock that meets contents insurance criteria. No one wants to quote for just 1 door, must do windows and back door. Can I replace PVC door with wood one?
My UPVC front door does not double lock. It opens from the outside with the key but when you lift the handle and attempt to double lock it the key wont turn. Does anyone know why this is? Thanks
Thanks for the responses. The door has been realigned however even with the door open the key won't turn in the lock.
