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.


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.

The lock works great. Like others who commented, I had to put one up to keep my toddler from sliding the door open and closed. I'd suggest printing in ABS if possible. The first one I did was PLA and the first time he pulled hard on the door, the clasp broke.

Noseydan - Thanks! It works great.

This looks like it should work perfectly on a sliding "barn door" I have that I need to lock. Warming up the printer now, will report back!

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

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

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