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.
