Need to lift UPVC door to lock

The door sometimes needs to be lifted to be locked, usually when the sun has been shining on it.

Door locks fine when is open and handle turned up.

The blue tack indicates where there are hex key adjusters.

The "Nut" that lifts the door -

Left most piece of blu-tack in picture 2

... Can only be turned slightly and therefore lifts the door very slightly & not enough to correct the problem.

Thanks for looking at my post,

Please bear in mind that I am dyslexic so sometimes the obvious is very unobvious to me, once i've "Got it" I am fine and can get on with the work.
