Many models of new physics beyond the Standard Model are able to describe massive, long-lived particles with macroscopic decays, which can be reconstructed as displaced vertices inside the inner trackers of the LHC experiments. In addition, the lack of evidence of any new physics at the LHC motivates to perform more unconventional searches, such as looking for displaced vertices. I comment on the 13 TeV LHC reach with a proposed multitrack displaced vertex search strategy to probe light sterile neutrinos. Limits on active-sterile neutrino mixing are presented.
