Sliding Window / July 22, 2018 / Christabel Gosselin
People have now started opting for sliding door also and especially when they have a good patio and garden. It makes the home look spacious and helps you enjoy a beautiful view outside. In case you are at the patio then you can still know whats going inside your home. The sliding door can also be used inside your home as a partition or to convert two rooms into one. Many people use this kind of door to distinguish their dining room from the living room. When you throw a party you can open the door so that the guests can feel comfortable and dont feel crammed together.
To install sliding window locks you need the following tools: Sliding windows can be lifted to varying degrees within their track. If you are using the venting position it is a good idea to fit something in the track to stop the window from being lifted. Small blocks of wood or plastic or just a screw can be used. If fitted correctly this can make the window a lot more secure especially when locking the window in the open position.
To install the track you need a secure surface to mount it too. Make sure your blinds came with all the parts you will need like bracket screw mountings for wood installation. Some paper windows come with a swivel bracket so they can be opened horizontally and pivoted open. You need a minimum distance between the swivel and the walls to allow the doors to open. The number of tracks roughly equates to how solid the window covering will be.
