Stoplock Helps prevent Tampering of your Sliding Glass Door Security Bar


Stoplock for Lockking Security Bars

Lockking Security Bar with Stoplock

  • Some of the older sliding glass doors or patio doors didn’t have a secure protective barrier between the panels.
  • When the door is in the closed position there shouldn’t be a space between the door and the fixed panel.
  • Newer patio doors like vinyl and wood usually have a interlocking barrier.
  • Without this solid barrier a burglar could slide a device between the doors and unlock a security bar.
  • Lockking has a simple device called StopLock.
  • Stoplock slides on the security bar and prevents the lifting up of the security bar and unlocking it.
  • When not in use, the Stoplock can slide out of the way.
  • Not all sliders have this problem, but Lockking supplies the customer with the StopLock at no extra charge for piece of mind.
  • People with Pet Door Panels will benefit from the Stoplock.

  • When You’re Away from Home

    Lockking Security BarsYou always want your Home Safe and Secure when you’re at home, but how about when you’re away.  If you travel you would want the Peace of Mind while you’re gone.

    Nothing can stop a determined burglar, but usually they are in and out in a short period of time.  If it’s to much work they will leave.  So you want to make  it tougher for a burglar to have access to your home.  Deterrents are what you want.  Alarms are deterrents as are barking dogs, but the dog’s probably with you or at a kennel.

    It would be nice if you could press a button and a shield would cover your home, but that’s wishful thinking (maybe in the future).  Alarm systems alert authorities, but there still is a little time before they get to your home, so the burglar, if he knows what he’s doing can be gone with the goods before anyone shows up.  I think alarms are great, if you have neighbors that are alert to have a watchful eye.

    So what we want to look at are the points of access to your home.  Front Door(s) ,Back Door(s),Garage Door(s),Windows and Sliding Patio Doors.

    Windows of course are vulnerable.  Windows generally have pretty good locks, if they are made in the last 20 years.  Front Doors and Back Doors can use dead bolts which are very effective if installed correctly.  Garage Doors can be secured from the inside with a pin on the track to prevent opening.

    Then we have the Patio Door or Sliding Glass Door, depending on which part of the country you are in, but still the same door.  These doors can be easy to break in.

    Some, if not properly adjusted can be lifted up off their track and pushed in, easy access. {Note: Here is a link to a Blog that can help with this problem:  http://lockking.org/how-to-raise-your-sliding-glass-door} But mostly it’s the lock or latch this is ineffective.  You can place a stick between the door and the side jamb, and that will work, but it can be a pain to deal with, literally, constantly bending over to remove it, forgetting to put it back, children and pets playing with it, it really isn’t practical, just a band aid.  Lockkings Security Bars can be installed at different heights, but the most common is at handle height.  From across the room you can see if the door is locked or unlocked, this adds to your Peace of Mind.

    There are many locks available, maybe I’m bias but I believe that Lockking’s Security Bar/Lock is the best solution.  Installed at handle height, it will work as a deterrent as well as a security bar.  It’s easy to use, so no more bending over to pick up a stick.  If you have a Pet Door Panel you know that they are difficult to secure.  Lockking has solutions for that.

    The best way to show anyone the benefits of a product is to show them a Video of it in action.  Lockking’s website offers all types of videos.  Check them out at www.lockking.org for the best solution for your sliding glass door.

    Apartment and Dorm Security

    Lockking uses 3M  VHB Double Sided Industrial Foam Tape to secure the security bar to the sliding glass door, similar to the tape that holds moldings on a car.  It is extremely strong, but can be removed without any damage to the door, and take the security bar with you to your next residence.

    This convenience make it possible for Renters of Apartments and Students in Dorms to have the Extra Security for their Sliding Glass Doors.

    Common Tips For Home Security Part 1

    I think it goes without saying that a little bit of Common Sense can go a long way.  With that said not everyone has had the same exposures in life so the Common Sense Factor may be relevant to the individual.

    First of all when you approach your  locked house can you make entry without a key.  If you can , well that’s a good place to start.  Racoon for Lockking Security BarsA burglar or thief looks for the most opportune way to enter your home.  So if you can get in relatively easy then you can guess what an experienced thief can do.

    One common sense Tip that most Law Enforcement Groups suggest is that you don’t keep valuables at home, and if you do hide them well in a floor safe or some other area only privy to you.

    Another Tip that is mostly put out by Insurance Companies is taking the time to make a list of all your valuables, photographing them and also marking them.  Then put that information in a safe place, safe deposit box, fireproof safe.

    So I compiled some Tips from different sites and from experience to share with you.

    First of all lets start with Doors: You have to remember unless your home is isolated the thieves have only a short period of time to do their work.

    Entry doors and all exterior doors should be solid wood or metal clad with a hand lock and a deadbolt lock.  Burglars can easily kick in hollow core doors and have there way with your possessions.

    Thieves can break through a simple keyed lock by various methods.  A door with a deadbolt poses more of a challenge.   So dead bolts are good for exterior doors, but only if they aredeadbolt for Lockking Security Barsinstalled correctly.  The bolt when in the lock position should enter the side jamb a least 1″.  The striker plate, that is the metal plate that the bolt goes through needs to be screwed in with 3″ long screws to prevent easy access by prying.

    The common term “bumping:” is a way a theif can open your door with any key just by bumping the key several times.  If you have an old lock you might want to invest in bump proof locks. If your doors are solid or metal and you have bump proof locks you have eliminated a high risk area.

    It is always wise to have a Wide Angle Peep Hole installed in the door .  If you have a Mail Slot in your door you might want to rethink your mail delivery, an experienced thief with a small arm or mechanical device could unlock your door.

    padlock for lockking security barsSo if we have Entry Doors under control lets venture one more to the Garage Door(s).  Most Garage Doors use the same basic track.  This track has holes in it so one is able to put a pin or padlock through the track and the door thus securing it.  Just remember that its there before you open your door.

    The next type of door is the sliding door.  They come in various sizes and styles.  The most common type of sliding door is a vinyl door.  There are wooden ones, usually higher end, and of course there are still many aluminum doors around.  Most sliders have a interlocking strip between them where they overlap when closed.  This helps with the strength of the door and keeps the weather and prying tools out.  Most vinyl doors have a lock or latch that doesn’t work well, thus putting the stick in the door.  Sliding doors have wheels on the bottom of them and travel on a track.  If the sliding door isn’t adjusted to the right height then they will be  able to be lifted up and out.  A simple adjustment can fix this, click  ‘How to Raise a Sliding Glass Door‘.

    Sliding Glass Door Security/ A Real View

    Not long ago, I received a call from a woman whose brother was a quadriplegic. She was intent on eliminating his struggles opening and closing, locking and unlocking his sliding door. Her brother used a stick in the railing with a string attached to it. She had been researching the internet for a solution, looking for a security bar – one that would fit in his large-sized sliding door. Her search brought her to Lockking Security Bars.Operation of Lockking Secutiy Bar

    A very large focus of the media is security, everything from securing our borders to home invasions; with daily news from crime against homes to crime against businesses. Many home devices are unable to withstand a break-in, although any security device will definitely deter a break-in by sight. An estimated 1 in 3 homes have a sliding door and most homes have sliding windows, making a good, strong security bar a valuable tool in home security. Some windows in a home are in a vulnerable place by sight or by foliage, and with that in mind, a security bar is a very unique security product for sliding doors and sliding windows. It is set in the door, with one end attached to the sliding door and the other end attached to the jamb. No tools are necessary for installation, adding easy placement. An important part of this security bar is its ability to perform at any height in the door.

    Action of Lockking Security Bar

    Unlike some products with a similar description of “security bar”, security bars works with the door, opening fully. Because it can be set at any chosen height, our security bar eliminates bending over to pull up a stick or move some kind of fixed lock. The bar moves with the door back and forth, and a simple push down on the bar will lock it. The reverse action unlocks the door. Once in a locked position, the bar prevents any movement such as jiggling of the door, preventing removal of the door itself from the outside. This product overcomes many obstacles encountered by our seniors, handicapped and disabled homeowners. Installed at any convenient height, everyone can easily lock and unlock, open and close the door it can be modified to fit any size door, which gives wheelchair users the convenience and security they need. Lockking Security Bar closing

    When placed out-of-reach, parents have added security for their children, preventing unseen access to such things as the backyard or swimming pool. This unique product has found its way into many homes, including a home of 11 children with disabilities ranging from autism to CP giving the caretakers added security and peace of mind. An Alzheimer’s home has set the security bar high in the door under the blinds, giving out of sight and reach to many, preventing “wandering” of patients. Parents and caretakers can see the bar from across the room or house. The children are quiet, maybe too quiet. With a glance – the bar is in place, peace of mind is back. We like that.

    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.
