LOCKING AND SECURITY
Can I securely lock my doors once a Pet Door Insert is installed?
YES YOU CAN! See our locking options available below:
Option 1) LOCKING BRACKET: Lock your GLASS SLIDING DOOR ONLY
FREE with your Patio Link pet door insert!
Locking bracket allows you to lock your GLASS Sliding Door ONLY.
Simply install a locking bracket on your pet door insert vertical frame, in aligment to the handle lock, relocate your current female latch onto the locking bracket and securely lock your glass sliding door.
Then secure the pet door insert to your sliding door frame by putting one or two screws through the existing hole/s where the latch used to sit, to catch the pet door insert though the frame, that way if anyone tries to push the pet door insert out - they can not.
Very easy to install!
Tools required: Hand drill and screw driver
Option 2) ADAPTOR: Lock BOTH GLASS and SECURITY FLY SCREEN DOOR
An adaptor is a great feature to have to securely lock both fly screen/security and glass sliding doors.
An adaptor is a long skinny panel that gets installed next to pet door insert.
Adaptor comes little longer and it needs to be cut and fitted into the sliding door channels at the top and bottom. Some people make adaptor shorter by cutting the adaptor shorter (straight line across) but we recommend to make the channel groves on the adaptor to make it a snug fit - please see our installation video below.
This is excellent feature to have especially in warm sunny days, you can lock your screen door, enjoy lovely breeze coming inside your home and keep unwanted bugs outside! Tools required: Hacksaw, Hand Drill, Screw driver, Pliers
