For people staying in shared, accommodation, door security can be difficult. Often individual internal doorlocks are not fitted in a rented flat.
Today’s invention provides a solution, which locks the door without having to attach any screws to anything (and thus lose one’s damage deposit).
The door handle spindle is replaced with one which is prevented from being removed by a circular plate on the inside and a padlock on the outside (yellow).
The padlocked side has a bar (grey) which can’t rotate on the spindle and which acts as a steering wheel lock, in that the bar runs into the corner of the doorframe, stopping the spindle rotating and the door from opening (inwards).
