Often the security sliding door will be fitted with an alarm helping folks know of an intruder. Once you know how to correctly secure a sliding security door, you will find that your home and your family can be much better protected. Remember that security doors in and of themselves are able to deter many intruders, simply for the fact that it is an extra barrier that they have to get through.
