uPVC external door handles are a durable and secure option for your home. They are resistant to the elements and can withstand years of use. However, it is important to install them correctly to ensure that they function properly and provide the best possible protection for your home.


Before you begin, you will need to gather a few tools and materials. These include:

A screwdriver

A drill

A measuring tape

A pencil

A spirit level

The uPVC external door handles

The screws that came with the handles

Once you have all of your tools and materials, you can begin the installation process.


1. Measure and mark the holes. Use the measuring tape and pencil to mark the location of the holes for the screws. The holes should be spaced evenly apart and be centered on the door handle.

2. Drill the holes. Use the drill to drill the holes for the screws. The holes should be slightly smaller than the screws so that the screws fit snugly.

3. Insert the screws. Insert the screws into the holes and tighten them until the door handle is securely in place. Be careful not to overtighten the screws, as this could damage the door handle.

4. Check the alignment. Use the spirit level to check the alignment of the door handle. The door handle should be level both horizontally and vertically.


If you encounter any problems during the installation process, there are a few things you can do to troubleshoot the issue.

If the screws are not fitting properly, you may need to use a larger drill bit to enlarge the holes.

If the door handle is not level, you may need to adjust the screws until the door handle is level.

If the door handle is not secure, you may need to tighten the screws further.


Installing uPVC external door handles is a relatively simple process that can be completed in a few minutes. By following these tips, you can ensure that the door handles are installed correctly and provide the best possible protection for your home.
