Good idea, but a simpler way I used is to slide in wooden dowels in the space between the top of the slider and the frame. I bought two dowels, costing 98 cents each, eyeball the size you will need and just slid them in and they stay there, do not interfere with the door operation, and fills in the space to stop any lifting out. Also, did install the SafeSlider on the lanai door. Easy to do with complete instructions online via a video. Cost was $29.95 plus shipping and tax.
