A Spring Cleaning Secret: Security Bars

Spring is just around the corner, which means it’s time to pull back your curtains, open your windows and patio doors or sliding glass doors, and let the warm sun and gentle breeze in to wash away the winter blues. But as tempting as it may be to throw open every window and door for this season of spring cleaning, these few points might make you reconsider that decision: 

  1. Children and pets taking the initiative to explore 

After a winter spent cooped up and swaddled in thick clothes, there’s no better feeling than the sun on your skin. While taking your pets out for a walk or letting your children play in the backyard is a must, that might have to take a backseat on your list of priorities while you clean out the gutters, swap out your jackets and coats for shirts and dresses, and replace your winter bedding with lighter sheets.

But to your antsy pets and kids, some fun in the sun’s up on that list, and an open patio door is an open invitation to get out there unsupervised and possibly put themselves in harm’s way. 

  1. Uninvited guests intruding into your home 

If your attention is divided between keeping tabs on your family and decluttering your home, or if you’ve kept a window open a crack to let a breeze temper the stiflingly warm nights, an intruder might take it upon themselves to help you get rid of some of your belongings – for good.  

You may think this dilemma has a binary solution – either keep your windows and sliding patio doors open and take a risk, or keep them shut and make springtime cleaning a dusty, cramped chore – but what if I gave you a third option, one that gives you the best of both worlds? A way to ensure the safety and security of your loved ones while inviting the sensation of spring into your home? 

Introducing the Patio Door and Window Security Bars from Ideal Security 

The Ideal Security patio door security bar, locked in place to prevent intruders from sliding open a patio door.

Coming in three different sizes, our 110, 111, and 112 security bars aim to solve multiple problems with a single, simple solution. Here are just a few examples of what you can achieve with the security bars: 

  • Intruder Deterrence: Scare off intruders with an extra layer of sturdy security; these security bars lock in place, and are drilled into the frame unlike pressure-mounted bars that can be shaken loose 
  • Incremental Locking: Open your windows and patio doors as wide as you’d like to let the spring breeze in with an opening too narrow to let the kids and pets out; the bar can lock in increments to prevent the door or window from opening any wider 
  • Home Installation Aid: Keep your windows and patio doors safely steady while installing in-window air conditioners or pet doors 
  • And more

Each security bar comes with an anti-lift lock for additional security and childproofing purposes. The 110 security bar also comes with a rotating bracket, which lets you store the bar upwards and to the side when it’s not in use. Depending on the size of your window or patio door, you should go for: 

  • The 110, with a minimum length of 25.75” and a maximum extension of 47.5” 
  • The 111, with a minimum of 15.7” and a maximum extension of 26.75” 
  • The 112, our smallest security bar ranging from 10.6” to 16.6” 

Once you’ve picked the right size and installed the security bar, you’ll have yourself an effective window lock or sliding glass door lock. 

This spring, there’s no need to compromise on security. Enjoy the comfort of safety with the security bars for your windows and sliding patio doors.
