Sliding Sceen Door Lock by noseydan Apr 6, 2013

Description

A lock to suit Traditional Sliding Screen doors (5 parts).

This lock is designed to suit a screen door 15.5mm thick.

Unlike locks that I was able to find commercially this lock will allow you lock/unlock the door from both inside and out.

I am interested in anyones feed back that has printed my lock, i am always looking to improve it.

Thanks. My two year old was the driving force behind me making the lock in the first place.

awesome!, my little baby girl loves to open the screen door, so this just saved me a few bucks and a lot of time!!!

Instructions

Print one each of the five parts. All parts can be printed without support you will just need to rotate/position them accordingly.

Print Settings of current Test Lock:

Layer Height:- 2.0
Infill:- 20%

You will need to drill 3 holes through the door, 1 8mm centre hole for the shaft and two 6mm holes for the rods that connect the two handle parts.

You may need to do a light sand to the square end of the shaft to fit into the lock part as it meant to be a snug fit. The shaft is slightly shorter then required so that you can tighten the lock up firm as the lock works on friction to work properly.

I have uploaded the stl files but if requested I can upload the files in a different format, what ever Creo 2 permits.

slidingdoorlock_combined.stl provided for viewing combined lock NOT FOR PRINTING
