Easy to fit and simple to usedesigned and developed in the UK the Patlock works on the simple principle that if the handles are clamped together on the inside of the property the exterior handles cannot be moved and it will be all but impossible to gain entry by forcing the doors even snapping or bumping of the locks will not work, as long as the interior handles are clamped the shoot bolts remain locked in position.
The construction method of French doors have always made them an easy first target for burglars. Even with high security locks a 12mm air gap around the opening sashes makes them easy to prise open.
Patlock literally binds the internal door handles together, so even if the cylinder locks are compromised the handles cannot disengage the lock. If the intruder tries to prise the doors open the Patlock straps the two doors together stopping them from being forced apart.
Patlock’s popularity comes from its obvious, whilst not unsightly, visual deterrent qualities. A burglar is unlikely to attempt forced entry when he sees Patlock through the glass. It is also really simple to use – you just push the two halves together. There are no keys, to disengage simply press the buttons and pull apart.
Patlock is easy to fit and release in seconds, no need for a key or code number. Patlock provides extra security and instant peace of mind to the homeowner.
Each PATLOCK comes with a pair of Tamper resist spindles which once fitted cannot be removed from the exterior, enhancing the security that PATLOCK provides. Fitting these is a relatively easy task for the confident DIY person, but if you are in any doubt after reading the fitting instruction, then it is recommended that you use the services of a locksmith.
PATLOCK is to be used as an additional security device for French Doors and not as a replacement for existing locks.
