Pet Door Security

There are many types of pet doors available, some have openings through hindged doors others through walls but what we want to address now are the types that work with sliding glass doors. These types of pet doors for sliding glass doors are generally called Pet Door Panels.  These panels fit along side of the sliding glass door when closed.

The Pet Door Panels are installed on the same side where the handle is.  When you close the sliding glass door against the Pet Door Panel it creates the doggie door.

Then Pet Door Panels are a great solution for a doggie door with a sliding glass door.  Each manufacturer has their own instructions and ways to secure the Pet Door Panel against the jamb and the slidng door.

With the sliding door attached to the Dog Panel, and the Dog Panel attached to the jamb, the unit is still not secured.  Most manufacturers latches are inadequate without the Dog Panel in place so there is little security with the Dog Panel in place. There are several types of practical methods to secure the Sliding Glass Door.  The most common is putting some kind of device between the sliding door and the side jamb.  One of the best devices is the Lockking Security Bar.

 This security bar is self adjusting and articulates with the door, it moves with the door when it opens and closes and a simple push down locks the door and panel securely.

 The Lockking Security Bar is constructed of aircraft quality aluminum and anodized in clear and black.

 The product is very effective and well built.  Lockking offers sizes for every type of Pet Door Panel.

 One big plus is that it is Made in America with a 5 year warranty on any mechanical defects.

Lockking Security Bars for Sliding Glass Doors/ Articulating Arm

Sliding Glass Doors or Patio Doors usually have a common problem, the latch or lock doesn’t work. Unless you own a very expensive door with a deadbolt system, you are like millions of other home owners or renters that have a less than adequate lock.

Many people use a stick or purchase a clamp on or screw on device that that may fix the problem temporarily. There are even some inexpensive hinged bars that the home owner has to cut to fit and screw into the door and jamb.

The problem with all of these products, even the stick is that you have to continually do something to it to make it work. Example: the stick, you have to remove it each time you want to
open the door and remember to put it back when you are done, you can’t see if it’s in place or not.  Hopefully the dog or child hasn’t run off with it.

With most systems on the market including the latch that came with the door, a burglar can easily pry the door open. The stick seems to be the cheapest most effective solution, but not the best solution.

What you need is the Peace of Mind knowing that you don’t have one more thing that you have to worry about and you can feel safe and secure about that vulnerable big piece of sliding glass.

That’s where Lockking’s Articulating Arm comes into play. Not only is it Easy to Install but to use,  it couldn’t be much Easier to Use.

Fitting between the sliding door and the side jamb it it provides the Perfect Solution to securing your sliding glass door.

How To Raise Your Sliding Glass Door

Adjustment for sliding glass door

Before installing a Lockking Security Lock or Bar you will need to raise the sliding glass door as high as it will go and still slide easily.  This will keep someone on the outside from pushing up on the sliding door and unlatching most factory latches.

To do this you will need the right kind of screwdriver, either a philips or slot driver.  By looking down at the hole at the bottom edge of the sliding door you can determine which screw driver will work.  There is a roller adjustment screw on both sides of the door.  By inserting the screwdriver into the adjustment screw in the door you can raise or lower the door.  Raise one side a little and then the other in order to keep the edge of the sliding door aligned with the side jamb.  If it seems to hard to turn the screw you might need a friend to lift that edge of the door to take the weight off of the adjustment roller.
