Need help with lock

I have a problem with locking from the outside - I can only get the key to turn if I take a stick and push in the small knob above the middle deadbolt at handle. No lock cover was installed so I have access to it from the outside. Locking from the outside did work for a few days after installation but stopped functioning for not apparent reason. Very frustrating lock that seems to be possessed of tempermental gremlin.
Asked by: pepette
I had similar issues. It has to do with the way the door was installed. I ended up calling the Home Depot corporate office to get this resolved. Go back to the Home Depot where you purchased it and have them come out and look at it. If it does not get resolved, call the Corporate office in Atlanta.

Can this door be fitted with a Quik Set lock?

I'm trying to use the same key for both the front door and the security door. I presently have a Quik Set lock on the entry door.
Asked by: Jimmmmmmmm
Thank you for your interest in our Meshtec security door. This security door actually comes with its own lockset and cannot be fitted with a Kwikset lock.

Can your lock be rekeyed to match my Schlage door key so I don't have to use one key for your security door and another for my front door?

Asked by: rchirp11
It seems like a pretty basic lock mechanism. I think if you took the lock unit to a locksmith before installing the screen, they could rekey it fairly easily.

I'm interested in a custom door size of 30x80. Is it possible to order a custom size? Also, when will your security screen patio doors come to market?

Asked by: ct1234
Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. I believe the best advice would be to talk to one of our many Millworks Department professionals at your local Home Depot store. They might be able to special order the size you need. The vendor for this door is Unique Home Designs. I would not have a timeframe of when we will sell security screen patio doors. Please continue to check our website for this item. For any other questions, please visit your nearest local Home Depot store or call us at Customer Service 800-430-3376.

What is the ANSI grade for this lock set? Can the cylinder lock be replaced? What type/category of cylinder lock is it so that I know what category of locks I can replace it with. Purchase of this door is dependent upon my ability to replace this lockset with a Mul-T-Lock cylinder that is key bump, pick and drill resistant without affecting the function of the 3 point locking mechanism.

36 in. x 80 in. White Surface Mount Outswing Security Door with Meshtec Screen is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Door. Lock needs improvement Door lock not working properly. The main issue is that it will not lock from the inside without a struggle. We have to open and close a few times, then slam the screen to be able to lock from the inside. Called the manufactor to reorder another lock. Rep for Unique Design said the locks have been redesigned, so why didn't they send our door with the new design...We were told they test all locks before sending. Received my replacement yesterday, now I need to call installation. We had it installed by Home Depot, excellent service. Will give it 5 stars if the replacement lock works. Appearance- screen darker then expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tip for making frame more sturdy I wanted to add this tip for anyone who noticed that the lock-side (not the hinge-side) vertical side frame piece is wobbly. Even after mounting it with the screws into the wood nice and tight, the side frame piece would wobble pretty badly. The wobbling would prevent the screen from latching if you closed it slowly--you had to slam it fast to trigger the button that would spring the bolt out. To remedy this, I drilled two holes and put two finishing screws into the flat part of the side frame that sits against the house. I attached a picture with red arrows so this is more clear. The screws stop the frame from wobbling and you can close the screen slowly and it will still trigger the button properly. If you put the screws in too far, the side frame will touch the screen, so you need to leave a bit of a gap. I attached another picture to show how much of a gap to leave. Hope this hopes anyone having the same issue I had!

The lock has jammed for the second time, the first time it was before the screen door was installed and the door was returned, the second time the door was installed, now I'm waiting for the installer to set an appointment to come out and fix the lock. I like the door, but the most important part the lock just hasn't worked yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No jail cell bars My wife wanted a security door that didn't have bars on it "like a jail house", as she put it. I found this one online and showed it to her. She really liked the simple look of this door, and so I went with it. I'm glad I did because once I had it installed, it gave us a great view of the outside without having to look at those ugly bars. I installed it myself and I think it's really well made. just check out Meshtec on the internet and you'll see what I mean. This one is expensive as security doors go, but I guess you get what you pay for. No regrets here!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT SECURITY, LOOKS GOOD The good news first: In my search for a screen door that offered real solid security that did not look like the front door from Alcatraz, I found only 2 at first. Both were $1400, and appeared very similar, using the gorilla strength stainless steel mesh. Then I discovered the Unique Home Designs Meshtec door being sold thru Home Depot for half the cost of the other 2. The Meshtec appears identical to the more expensive doors. And now that the Unique Home Designs Meshtec is on my front door it looks really good, and is giving me the security I was after. The bad news: Professional installation is recommended…. But what good does that do if the installers have never installed one of these doors before, since they are not all that common, and the installer is going thru the same learning curve as anyone else with tools and mechanical knowledge? I studied auto mechanics for 4 years, was a Navy Electrician for 4 years, and did lock-smithing for a number of years, and have done much home remodeling, including replacing every door in my house. The Meshtec installation manual appears to be first class, very detailed and easy to read…. The on-line video is also very professionally done. What Unique Home Designs should have done, is this: Hired a “professional installer” who had never seen one of their doors before and watched to see where the installer was puzzled or struggling; and written the manual and filmed the video with these hurdles in mind. The one thing that troubled me the most was whether I needed to use the “bottom bar” or not. although the manual had 6 examples, none was similar to mine… looking around my neighbor hood, virtually all the front doors were very similar to mine, so mine was not an odd-ball. The video just glossed over and past the use of the bottom bar. I ended up using the bottom bar, and I can’t imagine a case where you would not use the bottom bar… if for no other reason that it provides perfect alignment/spacing of the right and left jams, when used with the “top jam” and assures that the jams are all square and properly spaced to provide even “reveals” all the way around. My door opening is 5/8th of an inch taller than the book recommends, so, instead of filling in at the top, I simply slid the jams up 5/8th of inch leaving the bottom bar where it was… the 5/8th gap between the side jams and the bottom bar is barely noticeable and I was still able to secure the bar to the jams with the screws provided. SO… now it is finally installed and looking great and all my reveals perfect, all is flush and plumb mechanically as designed. I miss-read the instructions on the coordination of the “3 point locking mechanism” , and spent a very long time doing the “step 13” reset over and over until I realized that there was nothing wrong with the way it was working, just my perception of how I thought it was supposed to work… again, the video could have made this a lot more clear. SO.. now, finally, the 3 point lock system is deploying and retracting just as it should with the door open…. With the door closed is a different story. Very long story short…. The top and bottom stainless steel surrounds in the lock-side jam that receive the upper and lower “lock throws” were riveted in too far. Therefore the lock throws could not enter into them. After much consternation I finally drilled out the lower rivets and replaced them with screws that allowed the surrounds to be positioned about 1/16th inch towards the outside, providing adequate clearance for the lower lock throw. The top surround was so close that I Dremeled out the outside opening just enough to allow the top lock throw to pass. Now finally my door will close and lock with ease while holding the door snuggly against the gasket all the way around. I wish that were the end of the story. Now I discover that part of the problem I was having with the locks is the fact that the “lock cylinder” operated the locking mechanism from the inside just fine, even if the thumb turn is very close to the main doors jam. The problem with the lock cylinder is this: Unless you are pressing in hard with the key as you turn it, it does not engage the lock mechanism…. It just turns and turns.. nothing happens… I called 800 number, a new cylinder is on the way. By the way, I was installing this security door over a brand new Codel brand main entrance door and frame, so all mounting surfaces for the new security door were perfectly plumb and straight. Don’t take me wrong.. I am very happy with my new security door that doesn’t look like a security door, plus the fact that I saved over $700, so it was worth some frustrations. But I do think, that the door should have come with a closer, if for no other reason, to keep the wind from catching the door as you open it and smashing it against the house. So, I will be adding a $17 Home Depot closer to the bottom section of the door.
