Sliding doors are often chosen by criminals as an easy point of entry for a home invasion or burglary. Despite this, most factory-issue patio sliding doors are still built with only a simple clasp lock on the door frame – which can be easily defeated in seconds with a shim. Worse, many families fall into the habit of not regularly locking the simple latch-based locks, leaving a vulnerable entryway open to your home.
If your home has sliding glass doors, you may be looking for a locking device that protects your home from unwanted entry. Nightlock offers the patented NIGHTLOCK® Patio door security device for sliding doors in your home and business.
In this article, we will take a look at several common uses of the NIGHTLOCK® Patio to maximize your home security.
Added Sliding Door Security
As mentioned in the introduction, the latch-style locks of sliding doors are normally very easy to defeat. Even homeowners that are aware of this may choose to leave a broomstick in the inside track to block entry – however, criminals can easily defeat this method by manipulating the small gap between the two doors and removing it with a small metal rod.
To address this weak spot of your home, installing the NIGHTLOCK® Patio creates a sturdy locking foundation from the inside of your home. Using the strength of the floor, the NIGHTLOCK® Patio prevents criminals from the outside from stealth instructions from brute force methods. And while the NIGHTLOCK® Patio is easy to deploy and disengage from inside your home, it is near-impossible for an intruder to manipulate from the exterior of your home.
Another common usage for the NIGHTLOCK® Patio is its ability to partition your home. The following are some common examples of home partitioning with NIGHTLOCK® Patio:
- When hosting get-togethers with friends and family, you can deploy the NIGHTLOCK® Patio to prevent guests – especially curious children – from moving to different sections of your home. This helps keep your home safer and avoid potential liability issues should a guest be injured at your home.
- For workers that visit your home, you can deploy the NIGHTLOCK® Patio to keep unsupervised workers from exploring areas of your property that you wish to keep private.
- Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, quarantining individuals in a sanitized area of your property can be made safer by deploying the NIGHTLOCK® Patio. This helps prevent accidental exposure and keep your family safe – especially when combined with Nightlock’s line of customizable sneeze guards.
NIGHTLOCK® Patio Gives Your Peace of Mind
Most security experts advise homeowners to have multiple layers of security in order to protect your family and property. As with Nightlock’s line of door security devices, the NIGHTLOCK® Patio helps achieve comprehensive security in your home, business, rental properties, guest houses and more.
