The placement and angle of the locking prevents the door from being lifted up and also prevents the door being pulled out. Because as the door is being lifted it has to slide up and in along the pin of the lock. So the more upward pressure that is exerted on the door the tighter it gets in the locking engagement.
The Ivess Lock is easy to install, there are two no fixing screws provided in the pack and the backing in the pack doubles up as an installation template. By drilling another receiver hole in the bottom rail, the door can be locked in the partially opened position to allow for ventilation or control the movements of a pet or child.
There are no keys – Who needs two sets of keys for one door? As most extra locks that are fitted to sliding doors are fitted on the inside and can only be opened from the outside, so the spring loading device on the Ivess Lock is enough to secure the door which is the most vulnerable point of a residence.
