Newbie DIY door lock

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if this style slider lock Thingamajig really works against predators/ raccoons etc... I'm hoping they never make it in the run but I'm locking the door anyways as if they could.?, made it today from a metal rod and key rings

I'm confused on how it works ...

This picture


Looks like there is a joint in the pipe? Is it held together with the key rings? Is that the locked position?

I would use a heavier duty eye screw ... Preferably a eye BOLT, drill a hole through the door, and put a good sized washer on the other side ...

I don't quite get it either.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
