A Classier Idea for Sliding Door Security

Stylin' and secure

Family Handyman

Like a lot of folks, we needed something to secure our sliding patio door. But I wanted it to be a little more stylish than a 2×4 or an ugly metal bar.

It works great, it’s easy to handle and it gets tons of compliments from everyone who sees it. — Ryan Velthuis
