The Adams Rite Wood/Sliding Door Deadlock/Deadlatch is used to secure sliding wooden doors. This lock has the strength and deep backset which is required for securing sliding wooden doors. The deeper backset clears the recessed jamb used with wood doors.
The Wood/Sliding Door Deadlock/Deadlatch is easy to operate. A 45 degree rotation of turn or key throws or retracts bolt. A highlight of this lock is that the bolt is self-protecting. If the bolt is extended and the door is shut, the bolt will automatically retract, preventing accidental lockout.
