Eagle Multi Point Patio Door Trim Replacements

Multi Point locks or Patio door locks are really nice. They provide a little more security than a regular lock. Multi point means that is has different points where a bolt (similar to a deadbolt) will lock the door in place. For example there is always one in the regular spot on the side edge of the door, one can be coming out of the very top of the door and one at the bottom. Talk about security. Multi point locks also function super well and they are great as far as style goes as well.
