I have a patio door made of up two aluminium tri-folding doors which meet in the middle. One side has a normal 5 point locking system operated by a normal door handle and key. The other side has a hidden lever (only accessible when the main door is unlocked and set ajar.
The hidden lever (as seen in photo, as silver coloured) operates two bolts, one up and one down, to lock it in position.
The problem is when I operate this lever, it moves fine and the top bolt moves down sufficiently to release door at top. But at the bottom, the bolt does not move up enough to clear the metal lip on the ground.
So, I need to adjust this bolt to move it up. I keep saying bolt, but its more like a 80cm steel rod which goes from the hidden level down to the ground.
Basically, I can't access this bolt. Its hidden inside. I've taken off the lock faceplates and even attempted to remove the glass, so get access to the steel rod/bolt, but I can't access it.
The patio doors are 5 years old, so quite modern.
Maybe another way to ask is, how would someone actually fit the rod/bolt in the first place and perform adjustments?
