Does anyone have any suggestions on improving security on sliding patio doors (double glazed, UPVC)?
Unfortunately the door is used as the main entry / exit for the house so internal locks / bolts or the old 'dowel in the track' trick are no good...
The existing door does have a lock on it which seems serves its purpose (if slightly flimsy) - I would just see this as the weakest entry point to the house and was looking to bolster it with additional security.
We do have a front door but as a mid terrace with no parking space at the front we tend to park at the lower level at the back, and its not too practical / convenient to walk all the way around the block to the front door.
I might try to post some pics when I'm next at home and it's light enough to take some lol.
