Securing device for a sliding glass door installed backwards

A quick learner from USA says:
The glass sliding door (patio door) on a rental property of mine was installed backwards. Therefore, a thief can lift the door off its tracks from the outside.

We are looking for a way to secure the door. A website suggested a "retaining panel" would secure and disallow anyone from lifting the door off from the exterior.

Do you sell such a device (glass sliding door retaining panel)? If not, do you have any other devices that would prevent the door from being pulled off from the exterior given the fact it was installed backwards?

Some patio door companies do have the sliding door on the outside of the track. I believe Peachtree has some doors manufactured this way. You could use something like our 80-006 patio door bar. It comes with an angle bracket used on exterior sliding patio doors. What do you think?
