How to Raise a Sliding Glass Door

How To Raise Up a Sliding Glass Door

Adjustment for sliding glass door

Before installing a Lockking Sliding Glass Door Lock the sliding door should be raised up and still slide easily.  This will keep a burglar 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 in 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 too 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.

Try to keep the handle side of the sliding door parallel to edge as in the following illustration.

Sliding glass Door Added Security with Stoplock

Sliding glass Door Added Security with Stoplock

Lockking Stoplock

The Stoplock is for use on Lockking Sliding Glass Door Lock and Window Lock.

The Stoplock for Sliding Glass Doors is designed to keep a burglar from tampering with the Security Lock from the outside.  

Most sliding doors have a security stop between the sliding door and the fixed glass door where they overlap so some kind of device can't be inserted between the doors and tamper with a security lock.

On older sliding glass doors this security stop may not be there or functional.

When a Pet Door Panel is installed in sliding glass door the manufacturers security stop is ineffective.

The Stoplock is an addition to Lockking Sliding Glass Door Lock to help any tampering.

-Stoplock fits on top of bar and can be removed

-To use slide it over the box channel and tighten knob

-Stoplock slides out of the way when not in use

Stoplock is included with each Lockking Sliding Glass Door Lock and Window Lock

Pet Door Security

Sliding Glass Door with Pet Door Panel Lock

                                                  Lockking Sliding Glass Door Lock with Stoplock

There are many types of pet doors available, some have openings through hinged doors others through walls but what we want to talk about are Pet Door Panels.  These panels fit along side of the sliding glass door when closed.

They 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 sliding door.

With the Pet Door Panel installed the sliding door needs to have a lock.

Most manufacturers sliding glass door latches are useless with the Pet Door 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 Sliding Glass Door Lock.

 This security bar is self adjusting and articulates with the door, it moves with the door when it opens and closes.

When the Pet Door Panel is installed the door manufactures seal between the sliding door and the fixed door is nonfunctional.  A Stoplock is included with the Sliding Glass Door Lock .  This device helps prevent any tampering with lock from the outside. 

Easy to Use, Simple Push Down Locks the Door and and a Simple Lift to Unlock panel securely.

The Lockking Sliding Glass Door Lock is constructed of Aircraft Quality Aluminum and comes in three colors, White, Black, and Stainless Steel.

 Lockking offers many standard sizes for every type of Pet Door Panel.

Seniors and Home Security with Lockking Security Lock

Seniors and Home Security with Lockking Security Lock

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 grand kids.

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 where you have control.

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.

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 can bring a Peace of Mind, particularly in hard economic times.

If you put sticks in your Windows,  that works fine, as they are easy to move, but they can be a problem if you forget to put them in place.

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 one main door left except your garage door that is your sliding glass door.

Not every home have them, but most do have a sliding glass door.  Most sliding glass doors have very weak 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 help prevent a burglar from lifting it off the track and accessing your home.  This is done simply by screwing in or out the adjustment screws at the bottom of the door.

After making this adjustment,  you will want to install a Lockking Sliding Glass Door Lock. The Locks are designed to be Easy to Install and Easy to Use.  They are attached to the sliding door and the side jamb.

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.

The Lock is Easy to Install, and, Easy to Use.

Lift Up to Unlock and Push Down to Lock.

The Lockking Sliding Glass Lock can be installed at different heights on your sliding glass door.

In the Locked and Unlocked Position, it is Visible - so you can see that you remembered to lock your door.

Once installed, Lockking Sliding Glass Door Lock will move easily with the door because of its self-adjusting articulating features.

It must be locked from the inside and therefore prevents locking yourself out if properly installed.

So check out Lockking Security Bars - read what customers have to say.

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.

Entry doors and all exterior doors should be designed for security 
with a handle 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 are installed 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 burgular 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.

So 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 try to open your door.

Another type of door is the sliding glass door.  These doors 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 sliding doors have a interlocking strip between them in the middle 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 a stick between the door and side jamb.

 Sliding doors have rollers on the bottom of them and travel on a track.  If the sliding door isn't adjusted to the right height then they can be  lifted up and out.  A simple adjustment can fix this, click  'How to Raise a Sliding Glass Door'.
