We show the existence of a force induced triple point in an interacting polymer problem that allows two zero-force thermal phase transitions. The phase diagrams for two different models of mutually attracting but self-avoiding polymers are presented. One of these models has an intermediate phase and it shows a triple point. A general phase diagram with multicritical points in an extended parameter space is also discussed.
