Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LizziLou007 Double Bolt Sliding Door Lock
I cannot believe how many people have commented on how good this lock is and that they didn't already know about it. This is the not the first one of these I have purchased or recommended to people. The value for money is excellent, they are easy to install (and no you won't break the glass in the door). The only way anyone is getting through your sliding glass door with one of these locks on it is if they smash the glass. This lock prevents the door being lifted out of the track. I buy properties all the time and its the first thing I buy if there is a glass sliding door. I watched a youtube video and put them in myself and if I can do it........

I installed it on my patio door and it worked as advertised. Installation was very easy. A very well made product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FarmerDan Does not work on Vinyl Doors
This product did not install at all. This should have a large disclaimer saying it works great for wood windows, but very poorly on vinyl. The spacers, which I needed to use due to my jamb length, were a joke (cheap plastic, which bent when any torque was applied to the screws). The bracket made the door unable to close, until I bent it with a hammer. The lock part was unable to attach to my sliding door at all, which has a steel core behind the vinyl. I ended up having to use washers for the spacers, and double stick tape to attach the lock to the door itself, which I am lucky I had at home already. For a $30 product, I needed to improvise to get it to even work, which is aggravating when you spend so much. Also, with the double stick tape, it does not provide any real security. We mainly bought this as a child lock, so it works for this purpose, but I would not trust it against a burglar.
Also, more companies need to learn from Ikea. Diagrams speak louder then paragraphs of words, but a small picture of a woman holding the unit against the door is not even close to sufficient. Simple diagrams are very helpful, and should be used more often instead of small black and white photos.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IRISHBULL Great replacement lock!
The lock on my sliding glass door went bad and I was told due to the age of the door I needed to replace the entire door. I was able to remove the existing lock and replace it with LOCKiT. The ONLY complaint I would have is the color of it. I would have liked it to be completely white to match my door. But it still looks great even with the small amount of black in it. In my opinion, it works better that the old lock and is way more secure.

The bolt apparatus screws were too close to the glass and shattered the door. $330 mistake.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GeneSLO Buy a stack of metal washers when you purchase this item
I strongly recommend that you watch the installation video first, as the printed installation sheet with small photos seemed counterintuitive to me. One important step during the latch installation is to insure that the latch is to insure that the long axis of the latch is parallel with the door frame. Otherwise, the latch pins will not enter the latch smoothly. One way to insure this alignment is to drill and place the screw in the center hole first to attach the latch. It will be easier to adjust as necessary before drilling the outer two holes and driving the remaining two long screws. There was a small step up on the extrusion that formed the door frame. I used the thin spacer to compensate for this step. In retrospect, I would have foregone the spacer and bent the latch outward after installation. If you use any of the spacers, please purchase two stacks of appropriately sized washers at the same time, as you will likely need to add spacers to your existing door latch to make it work properly. For best results, mark the position of the latch on the inside of the door frame before removing it. Alignment and operation of the latch is much easier with those marks in place.
