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
Locking Bracket comes FREE with Patio Link pet door insert
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 female 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 - no damage to your sliding doors.
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 so it needs to be cut and fitted so it sits nice and snug into your track at the top and bottom.
All female latches need to be relocated to adaptor panel.
This is excellent feature to have especially when you like to have some breeze coming inside your home and you will keep unwanted bugs out.
Tools required: Hacksaw, Hand Drill, Screw driver, Pliers
