    We have had a new door fitted with a new multipoint lock. Can we replace it with a euro lock or can we make it work like an euro lock?

    Under the Equality Act 2010 we do not need to worry about cost due to the fact she is registered disabled under the Equality Act 2010.

    Hi @Andy_Assistive/ @Ryan_Assistive, is there anything/ are there any resources you can suggest?

    Hi @rocker123
    This isn't really an assistive technology question as what you are referring to is a mechanical door locking mechanism. However I'll do what I can.
    If its a new door I'd have a chat with the company that supplied and fitted it as they will know if the locking unit in the door can be replaced with a euro lock. Otherwise a locksmith should be able to advise.
    The other option that you may want to consider is some of the smart locks that are available as they can be controlled by a mobile phone rather than a key.
