Lock for front bi-folding door

Is there any elegant solution to adding a lock to the front bifold door without replacing the door - I want to keep the original door. Clearly needs some form of latch so the bolt is not simply withdrawn when opening. A padlock would be ugly!

Re: Lock for front bi-folding door

Three point like what is used on a garage door? You would need to add a lever on the inside. They typically have a keyed locking handle.
This post is my opinion. It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.
