Uses of a LockLatch™
September 1, 2016
LockLatch™ is a new type of lockable latch that is great for window and door security because it allows you to leave any door or window open but locked!
It’s ideal to add to your home security armoury, but is not a replacement for other burglar proofing including electric fencing, beams, lighting, dogs and so on. LockLatch is also a true DIY home security product and shouldn’t take more than 11 to 18 minutes to fit.
It’s made from C304 stainless steel and comes with a lifetime guarantee. It’s ideal for creating safe ventilation while preventing opportunistic theft, window falls and is an alternative to a dog door or cat door creating access points for your pets.
The main benefits and uses of a LockLatch™ are:
Safe Ventilation – Leave your windows and doors open but locked to give you fresh air and prevent opportunistic theft.
Quick and Easy to Fit – LockLatch™ is a true DIY home security product and can be fitted by any moderately competent person in around 15 minutes. All you’ll need is a drill, screwdriver and pop rivet gun for aluminum and PVC. We supply the rest.
Versatile – LockLatch™ is great for window and door security and will fit any door [patio door, hinged door, hatch, stable door, sliding glass door, front door, back door] or window [sash, hinged, skylight, wood, steel, aluminum or PVC] and whichever way it opens – up down, sideways, in or out – it doesn’t matter.
Adjustable – There are 3 sizes available all with adjustable gaps: MiniLatch allows an adjustable gap between 1.8 and 3.1 inches, the LockLatch with an adjustable gap between 3.6 to 6.7 inches and the PetLatch (the largest of the 3) with an adjustable gap between 5.7 and 9 inches. You can also create a bigger gap if required by mounting one foot plate on the outside of the frame and one on the inside. Send me a mail [email protected] if you’d like to know more.
Lifetime Guarantee – If ever anything goes wrong with your LockLatch™ return it to us and we’ll replace it free of charge or refund your money.
Made from C304 Stainless Steel – it’s hacksaw and rust resistant.
Let your pets come and go as they please – Use LockLatch™ instead of cat flaps or a doggy door. When you consider the cost of installation and the hole in the door, LockLatch™ is less expensive and less invasive. LockLatch™ will also work well as a patio pet door on a sliding glass patio door.
Protect Your Children – When fitted to an upstairs window LockLatch™ is a child safe window restrctor, sash window lock or child window guard designed to stop you children falling.
Stop Wind Damage – Used as a lockable window stay LockLatch™ will act as a Window stop and prevent windows and doors slamming in the wind or blowing open and breaking hinges.
Safe ventilation, trailer security, marine security and motorhome security – Fit LockLatch™ to let fresh air in and keep unwanted visitors out.
Safe ventilation for your boat – Fit LockLatch™ to the hatches of your boat. In fact LockLatch™ was invented while Anthony Bairos was sailing off the coast of Brazil. Every time Ant pulled into port he’d leave the hatches open while shopping. Having been robbed too many times, necessity was the mother of invention and Anthony invented LockLatch™ to improve boat security.
Fasteners are included – We supply the screws and pop rivets with your LockLatch™.
Easy to Color Match – LockLatch™ is finished in brushed stainless steel but can be easily spray-painted to match any color you wish.
