Or slipping a padlock on the outside while you're inside...
I'd rather have something I can operate from both sides

I drilled a small hole in the tongue of the existing latch for the rear and wheelchair doors and we simply insert a pin (actually a blunted nail) into the hole. Once you do that, no one can move the lever to open the door from the outside. You can't unlock them from the outside, but that is why you have the drivers side and righthand doors.

I thought this was the only way to go once I saw this. I will utilize the raised box that houses the handle mechanism from my drivers rear door. It is already drilled for the tumbler. My deadbolt should be here Mon. and I'll weld everything in place.

I'm not a gadget guy, Low-Tech is my comfort Some!

For the front, I installed a hasp. Padlocked at all times: for obvious reasons when I'm away, and to not get locked in by a prankster when sleeping. Plus, it makes it harder for me to lose the lock...

The back door has a patio slider lock I already had. Not much good for locking the door from without, but that hasn't been an issue. The thumb screw blocks the lever, and lodges tightly onto the guard. Easy peasy!

Now, back to work resolving cold fusion...20190203_090252.jpeg
