To complete overall post about sliding patio door design, we already have the blind doors to trap the sunlight. We also have reviewed about the curtain for the sliding glass door as well as we have reviewed the models of the sliding glass door. We even come to one of famous manufacturer of the sliding glass door. Then, as the closing post of this day and this weekend, we move to the design of the sliding glass door lock to give the safety to your house. As the glass door is really wide, the safety should be carefully planned. The wide glass can be fragile, then i suggest to choose the anti break glass for your sliding doors. More than safety design, the sliding glass door lock offers more models and designs.
You may have familiar with this conventional mode of the sliding glass door lock. This is just a slide door with certain panel on the bottom of the doors. On the bottom and usually in the joint of two slide glass, one hole is available for the key to lock the sliding glass doors. This is really suitable for the slide glass which only have two doors like the simple design before. The second model on the sliding glass door lock is the chain up models. This actually has the similar model and design with the conventional door lock, but in this case, the chain on the top of the doors can be opened by spin the chain. Well, I’m not really sure about the chain that may available on your neighboor stores, but that’s what happen in this model. The chained key makes me remember the hotel double key lock.
The next model of the sliding glass door lock is the modern password with numbered setting. This actually can be said as the breakthrough on the safety system in the sliding glass door. By using this, the possiblity to break down the key that may happen in the previous models can be reduced. Even though the number may can be hacked, it will take time and for certain failure, number will be blocked.
