There are many type of hinges that exist and used on uPVC doors, some easier to work with than others, this means a different technique may be required to resolve and repair your door alignment issue, therefore some may require the glass pane and panel to be removed and the door be toe and heeled. Toe and heel is a method of removing the central parts of the door and re packing the glass or panel to stand in a more upright position resulting in one side of the uPVC door being lifted to the correct angle.

As the saying goes, “In unity there is strength.” Having one of these three pieces will add a layer of protection to your door. However, it is highly recommended to have all three pieces to make your door stronger and harder to kick in. Of course, it’s not a guarantee that your door will be able to withstand any amount of force, but at the very least, Door Armor is strong enough to discourage a thief.


We don't know what the situation was in that house or what the situation was with their guns. The mother and daughter might have had some familiarity with guns but that doesn't mean they would know what to do in a panic situation. Guns are something that have to be almost an automatic conditioned response for someone to be really comfortable using them in an emergency. That takes many hours at the range. Preferably hundreds of hours of shooting. At least dozens of hours. Most women aren't that interested in them to put in that kind of time with them. Frankly they bore me and I go to the range because my SO drags me there and makes me practice sometimes.
We are very proud of the fact that we are the oldest locksmiths Nottingham founded and still operating in the city. Originally the business was created as Lock & Safe Radford and operated out of a small workshop behind the family home on Radford Blvd in the heart of Nottingham. During this period of time Radford was a thriving working class area with a factory on every corner including famous sites like Players Cigarettes & Rayleigh Bicycles and the family business thrived providing and maintaining secure locks for factory gates and doors and safes and lock rooms for the workers wages to be stored and payed out from. In the late 1970's the business had out grown the humble workshop and a dedicated shop, workshop and warehouse was opened just down the blvd in Lenton in a purpose built modern unit. At this point in time the business had changed, the focus on safes and there maintenance and supply had now gone. Modern banking saw workers payed direct into bank accounts and not the beloved brown envelopes they used to collect in person and most of the factory's had now closed or had moved production out of the area so the name changed and become LS Locksmiths Nottingham to indicate we were more then just lock and safe people but that we encompassed the whole security side for both commercial and domestic customers during this time the Nottingham locksmiths were in the hands of two second generation locksmith brothers. With the advent of the internet the business saw the foresight of being able to offer products, services and even training online and LockSmart was born, in keeping with the original Nottingham locksmiths name the L & S stands out proud. LockSmart Locksmiths is LS Locksmiths just like it was once Lock & Key Radford always evolving but keeping one thing the same... we will always offer the customer the best service at the very best price that's why we've lasted so long and are the oldest locksmith Nottingham.
This kind of stuff goes down really fast and I am sure most people panic and don't always make the most logical move. On the part of the father, confronting the intruder might have been his only choice if he couldn't get to his guns in time. Or it might have been a reflex action to go towards the intruder rather than pick a different strategy. Because he may not have had time to do something else. In hindsight, maybe he could have run for the daughter's room and put her out the window and told her to run then taken his stand there. Who knows. But he didn't have the luxury of thinking through scenarios. Most people go into flight or flight mode. For men, it is usually fight mode by instinct and for women flight mode. So he confronted the intruder and they hid. For the mother and daughter, hiding in a room and locking the door, like the bathroom, might have been a panic instinct rather than trying to get to guns that they may not have been comfortable using or loading or that they weren't sure they could get to in time.
I would imagine that if anyone had, in the slightest, upset the family recently, he would have gone for a gun before approaching the door at that hour. If I argued with a crazy neighbor or someone had made a threat recently, or any type of upsetting altercation happened, and there was a late night knock, I would anticipate that person and be on guard. Or perhaps the wife or daughter had an issue they didn't tell Dad about. So one of the women hears the knock, and is filled with dread. But Dad being Dad is not expecting trouble, and is taken by surprise.

Before you can repair a kicked in door frame, you must realize the different situations you can be in. First, you have to analyse the present condition of the door frame. Is your door still hanging at its hinges or has it fallen off completely? Does the latch side of the door frame remain slightly dented or has it completely come off? Are the other parts of the door frame still intact or there are many ruptures and clearly visible damage? There may be some innate damage which wouldn’t be visible at a glance and you have to inspect closely to observe subtle damages. You also need to look for any damages to the wall if the kick in has been extensive.

I'm still baffled by the fact that James was shot and killed near the front door, but all of his known guns are accounted for and were not removed from wherever he stores them. If someone rang the bell, he may have gone to the door without a gun, but you'd think he'd at least have had it in the back of his mind that he should maybe be thinking about having one accessible. Then, if he didn't open the door, that tells you he perceived the person at the door to be a threat. So wouldn't he at least be retreating toward his guns when the person kicked the door in? That makes me think the perp just kicked the door in right away and that was the first sign to the family of any trouble at all. But then, why would James go to investigate the noise without grabbing a gun first?
How many seconds does it take to get to a front door from a bedroom or other room in most houses? I would think a person of average mobility in an average house could get to their front door from any room in about 5 to 30 seconds. I have to go down a flight of stairs and traverse the entire house but I can do it in about 15 seconds. So it is possible that if the intruder was not able to breach the door with a single kick but had to use multiple kicks or shoot the door then kick it or shove it then the father could have arrived at the hallway just as the door was being breached and then been shot. Or he could have gotten there before the door was breached and been there as it was breached. I don't think there is a way for us to know that. I am not sure it matters either other than this situation at the door probably all took place in under a minute from start to finish.
