Fixing a sliding glass door latch is quick and easy if you have a Philips screwdriver and the replacement door latch ready. Open the packaging of the door latch and be familiar with all the parts and pieces. The lock on your sliding glass door (if it exists at all) is about as substantial a theft deterrent as a picture of a guard dog. For the sake of aesthetics, most standard locksets (those with doorknobs, not handles) mount the knob with hidden screws, making it appear as if there is no way to remove them short of a crowbar and large hammer.
