LockLatch™ is a new type of lock 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 house 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 home DIY 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 and creating access points for small 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 product and can be fitted by any moderately competent person in less than 15 minutes. All you’ll need is a drill, screwdriver and pop rivet gun for aluminium. We supply the rest.
- Versatile – LockLatch 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, aluminium or PVC] and whichever way it opens -up down, sideways, in, out – it doesn’t matter.
- Adjustable – LockLatch™ acts as an adjustable window restrictor for any gap of between 9 and 17cm. 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.
