PATLOCK

Most forced entry burglaries are committed through the weakest point at the rear of the property, usually the Patio or French Doors. Entry to French Doors fitted with standard handles and locks can be forced in less than 30 seconds.
Patlock is the home security product and visual deterrent for French and Conservatory doors.
Designed to deter and stop would be intruders, the Patlock is easy to fit and works by holding the door handles in place. This ensures that the door mechanism cannot be opened, even if the locks are snapped or removed!

THE BENEFITS OF PATLOCK

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Why do I need a Patlock?
A: Most forced entry burglaries are committed through the weakest point at the rear of the property, usually the patio or French doors. Standard euro cylinder locks can be forced in less than 30 seconds.
 
Q: How does Patlock work?
A: Patlock works by holding the internal handles secure, ensuring that the locks and shoot bolts remain engaged even if the euro cylinder locks have been removed.

 

Q: Is Patlock endorsed by the Police?
A:  Yes. Patlock has the Secured by Design accreditation which is Police approved

 

Q: What if the potential intruder removes the outside handles?
A:  Each Patlock is supplied with a pair of Patlock tamper resistant spindles that once fitted remain intact, which ensures the internal handles and Patlock remain secure.
Q: What if I need to get out of the house quickly?
A:  The Patlock device has no combination lock or key, which means it can easily be removed within seconds.

 

Q: Does it come in different colours?
A:  Patlock is only available in white in order to stand out against all colours of French doors. We feel that blending in would be detrimental to the Patlock's ability to be a visible deterrent.

 

Q: Do I still need to lock my French doors with a Patlock fitted?
A:  Yes. The Patlock is a visible deterrent and effective secondary lock, providing additional security. However we strongly recommend fitting the Patlock after you have locked your French doors.
 
Q: I only have doors with one handle, can I still use a Patlock?
A:  Yes, you can use a Patlock on a door with only one handle. However, you would need to fit a dummy handle in order for it to be effective.
