Home Security: Making Patio Doors and Sliding Doors Secure and Safe


Your home is only as safe as your least secure door or window. How many forced entries are through a patio door or a sliding door in your neighborhood?

Homeowners think if they have an electronic home security system and the best deadbolts on the doors, their family is safe at night. But how safe are you if your patio or sliding door is locked with a wooden stick or a poorly made lock that came with the door years ago? Security systems only let you know after your house has been entered.

Only good reliable patio door latches, or sliding door latches, keep intruders out.

Sliding doors and patio doors are popular because they are easy to open and close, and there lies the problem. The locks that often come on a standard sliding door are prone to failure with many operating parts, and many times stop working completely.
