Securing a door that is loose at the top

Postby 00042213 » Wed Feb 02, 2011 1:06 pm

Hi - My external front door is solid wood at the top of the door it doesnt meet the door frame and you can push it in towards the house with only a little pressure - other than replacing the door or frame is there anyway i can secure my door so it can be locked from the outside?

For example i thought maybe a security bolt but then realised that all keys are the same? Is that correct and thats the reason they are always shown fitted with the key internally.

Any help would be great, thanks guys

Fit rack bolts top and bottom with external key locking.

Cheers Stoneyboy - I had the same idea but i cant find them anywhere searching on the web - they are seem to have the standard keys that you have to use from the inside - got any tips where to find the external ones?
