Siding Door Security

Recommended Posts

After reading the posting about Sliding Door Lock Replacement, it reminded me of an offend overlooked security problem. 

"Some thieves will try to lift sliding glass doors right out of their tracks to gain entry. To keep that from happening, insert strong metal spacer plates between the doors and their top tracks. To install them, with the sliding door open, screw two plates per door into the top track where you've predrilled pilot holes.".


I have also used several screws in the top plate that are not screwed all the way in, long enough so the door can be lifted off the track and short enough so the door can open and close.
