How to measure a replacement multipoint handle
The main measurement to take when looking for a new multipoint handle is the PZ, or centres, measurement. This is the measurement between the spindle and the centre of the keyhole and is the main categorisation of replacement multipoint handles.
If you want an easy install then you may also want to make sure that fixing screw centres (distance between screws) are the same as your existing handle.
All other measurements are down to cosmetic preferences. However we wouldn’t recommend getting a smaller faceplate as you may be able to see the difference where the door has previously been covered and therefore not weathered at the same rate.
How To Replace Your Multipoint Handle
Replacing a multipoint handle really is a simple job and we believe that even the most inexperienced DIYer should have no problem doing so, as long as you get the right handle to do a like for like swap. The following instructions will guide you through the process:
- Remove the old handle: the fixing screws can usually be found on the interior side of the door. With the door open, you should remove these screws. The door handle should then pull off on both sides. If you’re struggling to find the fixing screws they may be covered by screw caps.
- Position the new handle: The first step is to position the new handles on the spindle. Make sure that the fixing screws are going to be added to the interior side of the door and that everything lines up.
- Add the fixing screws: The spindle should hold the door handles in place as you add the fixing screws. Once added you should check that the door handles are working by pulling the lever and that the door catch is moving in line with this.
