LOCKING & SECURITY
Are Pet Door Inserts Secure?
Our pet door inserts are fully lockable and secure without any damage to your sliding doors. You can choose how you like to install your pet door insert – one of three options below:
Option 1: LOCKING BRACKET
FREE with Patio Link pet door insert purchase!
Locking bracket allows you to lock your GLASS Sliding Door ONLY.
Simply install a locking bracket to your pet door insert, transfer your current female lock onto the locking bracket and securely lock your glass sliding door.
Very easy to install!
Tools required for installation: Hand Drill.
Option 2: ADAPTOR
Adaptor allows you to lock BOTH GLASS and SECURITY FLY SCREEN DOORS.
This is an optional feature. An adaptor is a long skinny panel that gets installed next to pet door insert. It 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.
Wonderful feature about adaptor is that you can lock your security screen door into adaptor, enjoy breeze coming inside your home and keep unwanted bugs outside!
Tools required for installation: Hack Saw, Hand Drill, Pliers.
Option 3: CORNER INSTALLATION
Another way you may like to consider to install your pet door insert is to install pet door in a corner where your fixed glass panel is.
You will need to look for screws that are holding your fixed glass panel, unscrew them and carefully slide your fixed glass panel across and fit a pet door insert in a corner. Then secure the fixed glass panel in a new position with a couple of screws.
Doing installation this way means you do not need a locking bracket or an adaptor and your main entry and locking remains untouched. When you move house, you just undo everything and put it back in original position.
