I have been looking all over for a freaking sliding glass door lock and can not find one ANYWHERE!
I have been using a stick but my son has figured this out.I am so scared he is going to get up in the night (and we won't hear him thru the baby monitor)and go out back and climb the fence and take off.
If ANYONE knows how to make one or where to buy one I would greatly appreciate the info

They are called patio bolts, and they are key lockable. I am assuming that's what you are after. Not sure where you live, but you can pretty much get them at any hardware store. I'm also not sure what they call them where you live, when I googled it, all the sites that came up were Australian, so you might need to take a picture with you to show them what you are after.

Anyway, I hope that helps :)

Not sure if the one step ahead ones are flimsy. I have had excellent luck with all of their safety products. Good luck on finding what you need! Let us know what works!

Hi,
Thanks...
The one step ahead one looks like it is easy to break?
The patio bolts look fun.I am in Colorado and I have been to the hardware stores here and they all have no clue what I am talking about...
But I will order one online..
Thanks again
