Today, I am going to introduce you to the Entry Armor Patio Door Lock. Sliding glass doors typically use latches instead of locks, making it easy to break into homes. The Entry Armor Patio Door Lock provides added security to your home by using a keyed, heavy duty steel bolt that fits all your standard vinyl sliding glass door applications.

Make sure the slider door is completely closed and locked
Remove the bolt, located at the bottom of the lock by twisting and pulling it from its base.

Push the bolt completely in the lock as it enters your drilled hole in the slider track.
