TWO PANEL DOORS

The typical sliding glass door has two panels. The one that moves is the "primary door" and the fixed door is known as the "stationary door". Please refer to Figure 1 below. If you are standing outside of your door and the stationary door is on the outside track, you may need to secure it as well. In diagram A, the primary door is on the right side and the stationary door is on the left. Likewise, in diagram B, the primary door is on the left side and the stationary door is on the right.

In both of these two arrangements, the stationary door is on the outside and may be vulnerable to burglars.

Today, most modern sliding glass doors have some sort of hardware installed to keep the stationary door from being moved, slid open or lifted up off of its tracks. Please inspect your sliding glass door to see if any such hardware is installed.

If you door does not have any such hardware installed, we recommend installing a Standard Version SliderLock on both of the doors as added security measure. This will insure that neither door can be lifted off of its tracks. The location of the locks is indicated by a red X.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are on the outside of your door and the stationary door is on the INSIDE track, you DO NOT need the second SliderLock.

THREE PANEL DOORS


If this lock is to be installed on a three panel sliding glass door, where all three panels slide to one side and the last stationary door is on the outside track, you may need to secure the stationary door as well.

If you refer to Figure 2 below, in diagram A, the the stationary door is on the left and in diagram B, the stationary door is on the right. In both cases, the stationary door is on the outside and may be vulnerable. Again, please inspect the stationary door to see if there is any hardware installed to make this door immovable. If none is installed, we recommend two Standard Version SliderLocks. Install one Standard Version SliderLock on the primary lead door and one Standard Version SliderLock on the last panel in the set. The middle panel DOES NOT need a lock as it interlocks with the other two panels. The location of the locks is indicated by a red X.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are on the outside of your door and the stationary door is on the INSIDE track, you DO NOT need the second SliderLock.

FOUR PANEL DOORS


If this lock is to be installed on a four panel sliding glass door, where there are two stationary doors and two primary doors that meet in the center, you may need to secure the two stationary doors as well.

If you refer to Figure 3 below, the two stationary doors are on the outside track and may be vulnerable. Again, please inspect the stationary doors to see if there is any hardware installed to make these doors immovable. If none is installed, we recommend two Standard Version SliderLocks for the stationary doors and one Standard Version SliderLock for the two center meeting primary doors. The location of the locks is indicated by a red X.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are on the outside of your door and the stationary doors are on the INSIDE track, you DO NOT need the second and third SliderLocks, you will only need the single Standard Version SliderLock.
