I have a folding door that folds inward. I drilled a 1/4" hole near the front left corner of the bottom step and when the door is closed from the outside, insert a 4" slide padlock thru the hole and around the metal slide guide located in the same area as the hole you drilled.. this prevents the slide from opening the door. it also saves extensive work installing latches or cylinder locks , on this type of door anyway....

I used these locks - a single cylinder jimmy-proof lock. Turned out nice I think.

Granted it's not on the bi-fold door, but I think it would fit and work well there as well.

Simple temporary lock

I am starting off by using my school bus to move to Florida from Baltimore. I need to lock the bus during loading or when I go to a rest area. Here is my simple temporary solution.

I used one of these and couldn't be happier.

Has anyone found one of these jimmy-proof deadbolt kits where you can get more than one with a common key? I'm OK with a couple extra keys if I have to, but would like to have a common key for multiple deadbolts if possible.
