Metal door install deadbolt

Deadbolt replacement

In Australia, the Lockwood 303/355 "jimmy-proof" deadbolt is very popular and extremely well built. Albeit a little expensive at around US$180.00But it is secured to the door with six screws, including the two rim cylinder connecting screws. For metal doors we installed a steel packing plate.

There were 2 versions initially, one with a flange and one without.
The flanged model was discontinued.

The steel packing plate allowed the open out door to have the lock sit correctly so that the strike would line up easily.

Once fitted, it is almost impregnable. Abloy also make (made) the Abloy Superstopper, which was made from hardened steel plate, with the bolt mechanism made from stainless steel. It was (is) significantly more expensive.

Pet Door Installation

2009-09-19 12:51:46 by atinylittlebird

Hi.. thanks in advance for any help.
I have a sliding glass door that is a standard height around 80 inches. And I have one of those "easy fit" pet doors that fit to a sliding door. I have used them in the past and they work pretty well.
The problem in this case is that the sliding glass door has a lot of extra railings and guides for the door and for security purposes making it impossible to install the pet door. Its about 1 quarter inch too high.
The top of the pet door has a pair of thin metal guides that slide (adjusting) into place into the door
