Professional Patio Door Lock Installation

It’s not a surprise that Americans love installing sliding glass doors for their patio. It gives them a great view, there’s no doubt about that, but what about security? Well, if you think that anyone could break in through your sliding glass door, you’re very wrong. There are all kinds of ways of improving the security level of your patio door, one of which is installing better locks. Such locks can make the job for the burglars extremely difficult. On top of that, these locks will not take a toll on your convenience. Of course, if you choose a lock with a user-friendly design.

The real problem with sliding glass door locks is that they’re not easy to install. It’s because even a tiny mistake can result in breaking the glass. This is why you need to hire real professionals for this kind of job. Luckily for you, our team of certified home locksmiths stands at your disposal!

Sliding Glass Door Lock Types We Recommend Installing

Apart from choosing the right people to do the installation, you also need to choose the right lock. As sliding glass doors are so delicate, not all types of patio door locks are suitable for them. Here are a few types of locks we recommend installing on these types of patio doors.  

Clamp Lock

There are so many great things about clamp locks, starting with the fact that they’re very secure. Once we get one of these on your patio door, no burglar will be able to get in easily. On top of that, they’re fairly easy to lock/unlock, so you won’t waste too much time on that.

Twist-in Door Lock

If security is a real concern, we advise using a twist-in door lock. Thanks to the fact that these locks screw a bolt inside the door frame when you lock it, it makes practically impossible for anyone to break-in.

Foot Lock

The number one reason why we recommend installing foot locks is your convenience. You just need to use your foot in order to lock or only it. Whichever patio door lock design you decide to go with, we have one ultimate advice for you – buy only top-quality products. All locks available in America are separated into three grades according to their quality – Grade 1, Grade 2, and Grade 3. It’s needless to say that our advice is to go with a Grade 1 patio door lock. It’s true that you will have to pay a bit more, but in return, you’ll get a much higher level of security. Speaking of it, there are many other ways to boost your patio door security. Our team will gladly share those tricks with you!

Tips on Improving Sliding Glass Door SecuritySliding glass door lock

Surely, installing a Grade 1 patio lock is going to do wonders for the overall security of your home. But, there is always some room for improvement. Our professional locksmiths have been in this business for so long that they’ve picked up a couple of tricks for boosting the security of a property. Here are some that are related to the security of patio doors:

Install an Auxiliary Lock

No one said you have to choose only one type of lock for your patio door – you can install all of them if you want! A piece of good advice is to have a foot lock installed, together with either a clamp lock or a twist-in look, which you would use only when you leave the house or going to sleep.

Fortify the Glass

With good locks installed on your patio door, the burglars will have no way of getting in by lock-picking them. But, they might decide to simply break the glass. That’s why our advice is to reinforce the glass before it’s too late.  

Use a Charley Bar

Charley bar is a great solution for patio doors as it adds so much to the security. Even if the burglars try to kick the door in, this security bar will stop them.

Install Patio Door Sensors

Standalone alarm sensors are very cheap, yet super-effective. How they work is that they’re made of two parts which create a connection with one another when you lock the patio door. And if that connection breaks, the sensors activate a loud sound alarm. So, if the burglars manage to open the patio door, a siren will start making a deafening noise, waking you up and, hopefully, scaring away the perpetrator.

Improve Security Features of Your Entire Home

To ensure criminals stay away from your property, it’s not enough just to make your patio door unbreakable. You need to improve the security of your entire home. For example, installing motion sensors and putting surveillance cameras all over the place should be enough to do the work.
