Posted in Patio Door Hardware, on May 12, 2022
There are only a few things more important than your home and family, and security is one of them. When it comes to home security, your patio doors and windows are the first line of defence against a break-in. That's why it's essential to make sure all of your doors and windows are secured with Amesbury Truth Window Parts. The first thing you can do to protect your patio door is to secure it with a secondary lock. Amesbury Truth window hardware has secondary locks designed specifically to protect patio doors – in fact, Amesbury Truth calls them patio door locks. These locks are easy to install and are available for all kinds of doors. They're also strong enough to provide you with a high level of security against intruders.
Secondary locks for your patio door are just some of the items that make up our catalogue of more than 10,000 parts at the Window Hardware Company. Like all of our window parts, secondary locks for your patio door are official Amesbury Truth window hardware products, guaranteeing durability, longevity and security.

Types Of Patio Door Locks
At the Window Hardware Company, we offer four patio door locking systems that ensure safety and durability: the Nexus lock system, Mortise locks, secondary limiters and the sentry lever activated manual shoot bolt.
Nexus Mortise Locks
The Nexus lock system is best for vinyl or wood sliding doors and can come in either a two-point or multi-point setup. This system features several locking points that can be adjusted to suit your security needs.While Mortise locks can work with different patio door pieces, these locks can also function on wood, aluminum or vinyl doors.
Secondary limiters are ideal secondary locks for your patio door, as they can withstand any attempt at forced entry weighing up to 400 pounds. These locks are available as foot operated or spring loaded systems.
The sentry lever activated manual shoot bolt operates with an accessible lever that secures both the top and bottoms of the patio's door panel.
The Importance Of Secondary Patio Lock Doors
While patio doors generally feature secure locking systems, a patio door’s locking mechanism can significantly benefit from additional Amesbury Truth Window parts.
Your patio doors are often out of sight and, therefore, out of mind. Any window is a gateway into your home, but patio doors are larger entryways and must be improved with intense security as a result. While a stranger must climb through your window, an intruder can simply walk through your patio door. Adding a second layer of protection makes life harder for unwanted guests, while simultaneously improving your home’s safety and putting your mind at ease.
Securing Your Patio Doors
If you’re thinking about adding a second lock to your patio door’s locking system, consider sourcing the piece from the Window Hardware Company. Secondary limiters and the other locks in our catalogue come in various finishes to match your window’s aesthetic while still guaranteeing a lock that protects your home for years to come.
