We can稚 weld and we want to keep the original system in place, but we want a secure lock and a handle on it.
You can drill down through the bottom stair and block the doors from opening with a long handled lock. If you squat down under you front stairs you should see how if you drill a hole, you can block the mechanism in the track underneath. It's not thief proof, hacksaw or angle grinder can get to it but if you don't wanna change doors, this is close to the best you'll get.
Here's another idea, cut pieces of wood to fit perfectly inside your stairwell to block both doors closed. Maybe a straight 2x4 with 2 legs that brace up against the back of your stairs? Put a lock on the rear bus or side bus door instead and just exit the last man through one of those doors?
