L440 Sliding Glass Door Lock

What are the difficulties in changing the lock on the sliding glass door? The lock has never worked (according the the OG owners) and they have lost the keys since. They were told by a locksmith that it isn't worth the hassle.

Okay - either these guys were very lucky in never having an honest thief board the boat or I worry too much about locking her up....! Anyone have any insight into this? Thanks! _steve

Re: L440 Sliding Glass Door Lock

not too sure Steve, but my locks are a little sticky. would be interested to know how to adjust those or possibly the roller wheel heights to make it open and close a bit easier

Re: L440 Sliding Glass Door Lock

I tried to find a replacement lock for my Privilege door and was unable to find one. I got some graphite powder from a real locksmith and puffed lot into it, then kept working the key in and out, then tried to turn side to side, and eventually it started working again.

I also use a long bar padlock across the door handles as a more visible deterrant.

Re: L440 Sliding Glass Door Lock

I ended up getting a locksmith out to the boat and it was a simple process to make keys for the lock and fix the problems the locks were having.

Re: L440 Sliding Glass Door Lock

Pics will help us see what type of lock you have, some are home use types and dont last well at sea.
As to adjusting the rollers, usually a +screwdriver 1/2 turn either way. Keep sliding panel square by opening door slightly about 1/4" daylight top to bottom, adjust until daylight is equal. If you have a problem adjusting it remove the panel. Slide fully open and lift it out of the track turn on its side (watch your deck and overhead). You can now lube the rollers and free up the adjusting mechanism.
