Choosing Door Locks Replace standard door locks that usually come with garage doors as they are not resistant to picking hammering and other attacks. For overhead doors that roll up or tilt up secure them with bolts or padlocks that are installed in the center of the tracks one-fourth of an inch above the roller when the door is closed. You can also choose a padlock and bolt combination and extend the bolt into the metal sleeve and have it recessed into the driveway by about two or three inches.
