The best Patio door locks
Everyone wants to feel safe and secure in their own home, but nowadays not everyone can afford the services of a private security company. Unless you are lucky enough to win a Euro millions mega rollover draw, like everyone else in the United Kingdom, I am sure you will be watching the pennies.
But fear not, there are some really simple hacks to increase your patio door security without breaking the bank, and below our very own residential security expert has reviewed four of the best patio door locks.
The Tough & Easy CROC
The Tough & Easy CROC is a very simple product that offers a highly visual deterrent to any would-be criminals that extra security measures are in place, but what does the CROC do?.
Well, this product just proves that looks can be deceiving, as all the CROC does is fasten both door handles together using a padlock. The same level of security can be achieved by using a £4.99 coded push bike lock over the handles and to be fair it would look just as unsightly. Security products should never alter or affect the overall look of what they are protecting, think of the secret service in America, they’re always by the president’s side but not always in your face.
The CROC is a very affordable product but provides no protection against handle snapping or cylinder snapping and for this reason alone, we feel you would be best to spend your money elsewhere.
WE GIVE THE CROC A RATING OF 5/10
You can tell straight away that the designers of the Securian PX-3 worked the problem of handle snapping backwards, and came to market with a product that prevents your patio door handles from being operated. Unlike the Tough and Easy CROC, the Securian PX-3 is made from a solid metal material, available in a range of colors and locks without the use of a key. It’s simple and quick to use and a nice touch is the handle protection strip inside the PX-3 to prevent damage to your handles.
The PX-3 is a well priced at £34.99
WE GIVE THE SECURIAN PX-3 A RATING OF 7/10
Patlock security lock
The Patlock patio door security lock is the original French door handlebar lock and was designed from the ground up. It operates by simply sliding the Patlock over both patio door handles and then locks in place automatically, to release the Patlock simply press the white pads and off she comes. The Patlock has been tested and approved by Security by Design making it police approved.
The French door handlebar lock comes complete with a pair of tamper-proof spindles you will need to install to your door handles to make the Patlock fully operational and secure, however, this may not be a DIY job for everyone so I would recommend using a trusted and approved local locksmith. We feel the Patlock could be hard to operate for elderly people who have lost movement in their hands but overall its a good product.
WE GIVE THE PATLOCK A SOLID 9/10 – its one of the best patio door locks
The Brisant Lock Lock Handle
Every once in a while a product come to market that is so far a head of it time you almost have double take what your looking at, so way a head of its time that you cant workout where it been all your life.
The Brisant lock lock handle is a high security door handle that was originally designed to combat handle and cylinder snapping on double handled patio doors. This unique product is the first patio door handle of its kind to offer a no external cylinder option, creating a highly visual deterrent to any would be criminal.
The Brisant lock lock handle simply replaces your existing door handles and is 210% more secure than a standard door handle, due to its 12.9 grade high strength fixing screws. The shape and design of the handle is no accident, its designed to prevent a burglar gripping and snapping your handle using mole grips. Click here to see how easy handle snapping is.
