    Default How do you Lock your Sliding Barn Door?

    Looking for ideas on how to lock my sliding barn door from outside? I have no passage door so I need to lock my slider from outside. Currently has no lock. Thanks

    do you have a concrete apron? (i dont suppose it really matters)

    one of these oriented vertically into concrete would work (even if its just a "post hole" below the bolt)

    FYI mine is secured from the inside.

    Be sure there is something on each end to prevent it being pulled open, even by the wind. The hasp probably will be your best option. I have seen a chain with hole drilled in the door. There is a local hardware store here who sells all kind of sliding door hardware and that was only place I could find what I wanted but that was for the inside. Some of this will depend on whether your door slides over the wall or is level with the wall or even on the inside wall.

    I have a sliding mechanism that looks like a bent rod -- hard to describe but it is specifically designed for sliding doors It holds the door closed and can be locked by a padlock if desired. I bought at TSC stores here in Canada -- different than the U.S. but they might have them if they have the sliding door track and wheels. They are called horse fooler latches. You can also use a cremone bolt which can be operated from both sides and locked from one side- they go into a top and bottom plate. -- or you can use a hasp!!

    You have no wall to install a passage door?

    Same here. But I just finished cleaning and organizing the barn. I guess I'm getting paranoid as the economy worsens
