What can I do if my sliding door does not lock? Posted on August 04, 2011

We have lived here three days. We went to the patio (a sliding glass door with no lock on the outside and you have to lock from the inside with it closed to secure the door. The door will not lock otherwise.) The malfunctioning door locked us out. I believe the door may have locked when it was closed however I am not exactly sure what happened. The item that is clear is that no locking before leaving.The apartment contract states: "We do not have a lock-out service. If you lock yourself out, you will need to contact and pay for a locksmith to open your door."
