How To Raise Your Sliding Glass Door

Adjustment for sliding glass door

Before installing a Lockking Security Lock or Bar you will need to raise the sliding glass door as high as it will go and still slide easily.  This will keep someone on the outside from pushing up on the sliding door and unlatching most factory latches.

To do this you will need the right kind of screwdriver, either a philips or slot driver.  By looking down at the hole at the bottom edge of the sliding door you can determine which screw driver will work.  There is a roller adjustment screw on both sides of the door.  By inserting the screwdriver into the adjustment screw in the door you can raise or lower the door.  Raise one side a little and then the other in order to keep the edge of the sliding door aligned with the side jamb.  If it seems to hard to turn the screw you might need a friend to lift that edge of the door to take the weight off of the adjustment roller.

[…] The next type of door is the sliding door.  They come in various sizes and styles.  The most common type of sliding door is a vinyl door.  There are wooden ones, usually higher end, and of course there are still many aluminum doors around.  Most sliders have a interlocking strip between them where they overlap when closed.  This helps with the strength of the door and keeps the weather and prying tools out.  Most vinyl doors have a lock or latch that doesn’t work well, thus putting the stick in the door.  Sliding doors have wheels on the bottom of them and travel on a track.  If the sliding door isn’t adjusted to the right height then they will be  able to be lifted up and out.  A simple adjustment can fix this, click  ’How to Raise a Sliding Glass Door‘.
