Residential Lock Tips

Charlie bars are a great way secure sliding glass doors. They are easy to use, and also give a visual deterent to criminals “scoping” out a location. The priciple they opperate under is simple enough. When you want extra security simple lower the bar and lock it into place on the frame. This will work to prevent opening the sliding door by track jumping or shimming.


2. Window Locks

Keeping would-be intruders out is an important concern for most homeowners. Though hinged doors are relatively easy to protect with proper latches and deadbolts, windows are not as simple to secure.

It helps maintain the integrity of a structure’s outer shell to keep wind, rain and flying glass fragments from wreaking havoc inside the structure. Security films can also reject harmful UV rays, which cause fading and can significantly lower energy costs by reducing interior space solar heating by as much as 98%.
