£42.50 including delivery ( next cheapest I could find was Amazon @ £49.37 )



Was looking for additional security for my patio doors and while the Patlock has its drawbacks it certainly has enough reputation and should go somwway to slowing down anyone attempting to get into the house.


This comes with the lock and tamper-proof door spindles
for added security as well.


Patlock Box Contents
1 x Patlock
1 x Pair of tamper resist spindles
2 x Window stickers
1 x Instruction leaflet





DETERRENT for would be intruders, while providing home owners with instant peace of mind.

PATLOCK has been designed and developed in the UK to assist home owners in securing their property against burglars and the growing trend of lock snapping.

Most forced entry burglaries are committed through the weakest point at the rear of the property, usually the Patio or French Doors.

Entry to French Doors fitted with standard handles and locks can be forced in less than 30 seconds.






Each PATLOCK comes with a pair of Tamper resist spindles which once fitted cannot be removed from the exterior, enhancing the security that PATLOCKprovides.

We recommend that you use the services of a locksmith for the initial fit of the PATLOCK spindles, unless you are confident that the instructions provided can be followed successfully.

Both PATLOCK and the tamper resist spindles are Patent registered products.

PATLOCK is to be used as an additional security device for French Doors and not as a replacement for existing locks.

Someone would just take a hammer to the huge piece of glass and walk in past the 'locked' door.

lol wouldnt stop you using the handles as they will still move freely with that lock on
This acts just like a steering wheel lock. Whilst they are not burglar proof, it's a good deterent. If it makes the burglar think twice then it's done its job as far as I'm concerned.

I bought one of these after having the locks snapped when I was asleep! Luckily alarm was set, so they ran away with nothing. Most likely after my car keys!

Just remember, this is not a substitute for decent anti snap locks...

If you have pvc door, make sure you have kitemarked anti snap locks fitted too. Otherwise they will just gain entry through that door instead...

Of course, they could always just break a window, but that would not be very discreet. particularly if you are asleep upstairs like I was...

Snap locking is easy, so they are looking to be in and out as fast as possible.

Money well spent IMO.

fugly
you cannot get in from the outside using a key
Sounds daft but if you have a bike U-Lock its the perfect size to do exactly this
Seems expensive but my brother's patio door locks got broken, so I guess a good deal as would put off the average burglar.Quite chunky. Are they accredited?
Saw this on dragons den. No guarantees that it will stop you getting broken in , but any deterrent is good .

True but im assuming FrecLock wasnt quite as appealing as Patlock
Handles snap easily so they just push the door hard and a handle reaks off, complete waste of money.

Q: What if the potential intruder removes the outside handles?
A: Each Patlock is supplied with a pair of Patlock tamper resistant spindles that once fitted remain intact, which ensures the internal handles and Patlock remain secure.

Q: Is Patlock endorsed by the Police?
A: Yes. Patlock has the Secured by Design accreditation which is Police approved

dont know how much weight this holds but its certainly endorsed by many forces and neighbourhood watch etc

Nope. It’s takes a lot of noise and effort to get through a patio that way. They are toughened so you would end up with a hammer sized hole to star with. That’s why no one does that!

Have these on my doors, mainly as a deterrent but they actually do serve a practical purpose. Fitted alongside 3 star rated euro cylinder and handles make the most common way of gaining forced entry much harder.

If you’re worried about smashing glass, you’d best board up your windows....... if they want to get in - they’ll get in.....

As far as I know, SBD is a good standard. Read something about it 5 years ago when we were deciding which bifold doors to get.

I have 2 french patios doors and they are weakest entry to my house so I may get these. Thanks.
Be aware,to make this lock effective, you need to replace your old spindles with the ones that come with the lock.In my case the new spindles did not need to be cut, however the two round spindle clips ( which are about the size of a 1p piece ) need to fit tightly onto the spindle. In my case i had to widen to holes in the upvc door. This was no big deal. For a better idea of what I'm saying,watch the installation video Installation guide

Hahahahhaha this is a wind up right?
I have a double french door and another single one. I am thinking of buying this for the double, but is there anything available to secure the single?

I got the locks replaced with better quality ones when I moved in.

Afraid not, our next door neighbour had their patio doors smashed in at 10am while we were in our house. They used a bar in the corner of the door's glass to apply pressure and with it being safety glass it shattered without exploding in to a million pieces and they just pushed it in.

Fit an internal door jammer top and bottom. They’re not exactly pretty but cheap and effective. Can get a pair for around a 5er on eBay. Can be fitted on windows too

Simple. Remove handles, usually 2 x positive screws. Replace the spindle with the ones provided with the lock, then refit the handles. Spindles May need cutting down with a hacksaw
I use a bike lock too, cheaper more effective prevention
I’ve got these on my doors and windows. Only about a fiver for 6.

I m not sure how strong they are because, to date, they have never been used in anger. But they could slow down criminal long enough for them to maybe want an easier target

Those look goods but they don't act as a visual deterrent. They are a good supplement to the Patlock so thanks.

Was thinking exactly the same as this picture. My Dad used to use a cheap poundland style flexible bike lock around the handles of his French doors when he went on holiday etc. Seems to do the same job.
I've just ordered a set of these, after doing some fairly extensive research including taking my doors apart.

The locks themselves. Better than the padlock option due to the tamper resistant spindles.

If they do snap your lock, then this adds a good 2nd layer of security. It won't stop them forever, nothing will. But it's all about the amount of time, noise and effort it takes to get in that counts.

Of course, having a couple of highly territorial GSDs the other side of the glass is my best 3rd layer of security.

Lastly a word of warning, the website payment with PayPal is AWFUL. Took me 3 attempts to get it to work. If you make a mistake (upper case in email one of the several times you have to write it out for example) then just give up and start again.

When you go to fill the form out to buy this, you put name and address etc. Then you click on PayPal, it copies your info over to the PP popup window, BUT once you have finished the PayPal form, it will take you to the main website page again, but in the new small PayPal window.

You have to fill out all your data AGAIN and then you can complete it. Note, you will need to go back to the top and manually add your email address in AGAIN... the page takes you to step 2 for address, but go up and do that too. Dumb site, really dumb. Hopefully this info will save anyone else having a faff with it.
