Call “A” Locksmith today for a free phone quote to secure your sliding glass doors.
How Does it Work? A double bolt lock offers superior protection by securing the door the frame at two points. This makes any movement of the door virtually impossible, preventing a burglar from lifting the door off its track to gain entry. A double bolt lock also offers flexibility and convenience. It can be installed above your standard lock to be out of children’s reach, or below your standard door lock to be in your child’s reach. The lock can also be equipped with a keyed lock from the inside for additional childproofing. Our double bolt lock is attractive and is available in white, black or aluminum to match your décor. We can also attach an optional handle for the easiest operation of your sliding glass door.
What Else Can I Do? No lock can prevent a criminal from throwing a brick through your sliding glass door. Although this is fairly rare since it is noisy and dangerous to the burglar, there are ways to protect the actual glass as well. After securing your locks, we recommend you call a local window security film installer for added deterrence and protection.
