Buying and fitting a new lock to a door can be complicated...

What size do you need? Should you choose left-handed or right-handed? What's required for double doors? Should the lock operate on the slave or master door? Or both?

At Coastal Group we've simplified the multipoint lock section of our website to make it easier for you to browse the range and select the correct hardware for your next project.

Winkhaus multipoint locks are available online
