Sliding Patio Doors Must be Fitted With Proper Security Locks
Every door lock in your home is important to keep you and your family safe, but sliding doors are generally designed with minimal security in mind. Make sure your sliding doors are fitted with key-operated push locks so they can't be lifted and opened from the outside. If you're unsure whether your sliding doors are as secure as possible, call our experts and we can make suggestions and changes to ensure they are as safe and secure as possible.
Mechanical Code Locks for Protection and Convenience
Advanced lock technologies are favored due to their ability to provide both protection and convenient access at the same time. One of the best choices is mechanical code locks that offer increased security while preventing lockouts from happening. The use of codes in opening door locks is suitable for those who always misplace or lose their keys.
The Door Won’t Stay Closed
If your door does not stay closed when you're attempting to close it, there are two things you have to check according to our specialists. First, check your door’s strike plate to see if it is properly aligned. Make the necessary adjustment if it is not. Second, check your door’s strike. If it is stuck, lubricate it.
Finding a Misplaced Key
Many people misplace their keys even when they are just at home or at the office. Finding a misplaced key is time consuming and stressful. To help you easily locate your key, get yourself a key-finding device that attaches a tracking chip to your key so you can easily find it as it beeps when you press a coordinated button or even your phone.
