Sliding Glass Door Lock Hardware
If all sliding glass doors took the same locks it wouldn’t be a big deal to repair. The problem is there are lots of different types of sliding glass door locks. This means tracking down hardware can be a problem and even though it may look the same the internal components can be different. This means we have to disassemble the lock most of the time to pull model numbers to ensure we are ordering the correct hardware (for hard to find locks). Common sliding glass door lock replacement usually isn’t a big deal unless the door is really old it can make finding the right hardware can be tricky.
Can’t My Sliding Glass Door Lock Just Be Replaced?
Yes, and no. This is because not all sliding door lock kits will match your door. The mounting screw pattern could be different, the clyinder tailpiece, or even latch might not match up. Which means it’s not going to work correctly.
I wish there was a way to make one lock work on every sliding glass door but that’s not the case. However, if we can obtain the sliding glass door lock that fits your door we can absolutely replace or repair it.
