Stoplock Helps prevent Tampering of your Sliding Glass Door Security Bar


Stoplock for Lockking Security Bars

  • 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.

    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‘.

     

    Seniors and Home Security

    Seniors and Security

     

    If you’re anything like me, any changes in routine can be unsettling.  From a change in a doctors appointment, to an unexpected visit from my grandkids… I guess as you get older, your ‘Life Box’ seems to become smaller. It feels  more secure when life goes along at the regular daily pace. Your home is part of your Life Box.  Changes seem larger as we age. Most changes are fine, of course, but their effects are greater than they would have been, say, twenty years ago.

    family for Lockking Security Bars

     

    The most noticeable changes are your home, car and family.  Take your car for instance.  You don’t want anyone breaking into it so you are more cautious where you park, locking it faithfully and perhaps setting an alarm.  The same concerns should apply to your home.  Knowing where all the vulnerable places are in your home and safe guarding them in what ever means you can.  You lock your door every time you leave or return.  You check all the doors at night before you go to bed.  You put sticks in the windows to prevent them from being opened from the outside.  This may seem a little paranoid, but it’s basic common sense if you don’t want home intrusion.

     

    You can have an alarm system installed, but you have to remember to turn it on and off and it can be costly.  Signs outside your home indicating that you have an alarm system.  Or, possibly a sign indicating you have an unfriendly dog.  Home security brings peace of mind, particularly in hard economic times.

     

    If you put sticks in your windows,  that works fine, as they are easy to move.  Your doors have their own security with a lock in the handle and a dead bolt lock.  So now you have your window and doors covered, there’s only one thing left. Not all homes have one, but most do – a sliding glass door.  Most sliding glass doors have very inadequate locks.  They can be bumped or “rocked” from the outside and become unlatched.  Of course, high end doors have better locks on them, but there’s always a way to unlatch them.  If you have a sliding glass door you might want to raise the sliding door as high as it will go to take the play or wiggle out of it.  This is done simply by screwing in or out the adjustment screws at the bottom of the door.

     

    After making this adjustment,  you would still want to put in some kind of bar to prevent the door from opening if don’t feel comfortable with the latch.  There are many after-market devices for sliding glass doors from foot levers, to pins, and security bars.  When choosing a security device, remember you want it to be easy to use.  With back problems prohibiting bending up and down, or perhaps opening and closing your doors from a wheel chair, you’ll want to choose something that aids you in the task.  One of the best locks on the market comes from a company in Oregon, JTC Solutions.  Their objective is to provide a security bar that is visible as a deterrent; is easy to install, and, of course, is easy to use. LockKing Security Bars provide each of these. The LockKing can be installed at different heights in your sliding door to accommodate your needs.  Set high, they add to the security of children. In locked position, it is visible – so you can see that you remembered to lock your door.

     

    Once installed, LockKing moves easily with the door because of its self-adjusting articulating features. This means it like your arm with your hand and shoulder attached to the sliding door and the side jamb.  Then your elbow is the articulating part.  When in the locked position no one can slide the door or open it from the outside.  It must be locked from the inside and therefore prevents locking yourself out.  It can’t be jimmied, and being in full sight from the outside adds a deterrent.  So check out LockKing Security Bars – read what customers have to say.  I know you will find them a lot better than any security bar on the market.lockking security bars

    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.

    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.

    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.
