Types of Slide Locks

What type of slide lock should you install? Many different styles and brands of garage door locks are available. Most people just use our garage door openers to remotely open the garage door. But, a remote doesn't necessarily lock the garage, it just closes the door.  You can install a t-handle lock on your garage with cables connected to side locks. This is a convenient extra level of security enabling the door to be locked with a key and be opened from both inside and outside the garage.

An even quicker and easier option is to install a slide lock (watch video) on the inside of your garage door. This simple type of lock is attached to the inside edge of the garage door next to the garage door track.  A manual flat bolt is then slid through the door track preventing the garage door from being lifted. For added security you can attach a padlock through the bolt preventing the garage door from being lifted even from the inside. This can hinder thieves who may have entered your home, from being able to open the garage from the inside to move items out without the key or use of tools.
