locking bypass doors?

hey guys,

Here's one for you - I am just finishing up a remodel where I
put some bypass doors on a small storage (4X7) storage
area - Its next to the garage, and having doors that would swing
into a car parked in the driveway seemed inconvenient :-)

Anyway, I was told there is a locking system for these sorts
of doors (plus they were an order of magnitude cheaper than
a "rollup" security door) - The trouble is that the contractor
droid now seems to have no idea what sort of hardware to
use to do this, and I was hoping some of you might have
some interesting ideas on this subject...

I was thinking maybe some sort of Great Big Camlock or maybe
some sort of lock used for a sliding glass door on the "outside" door
one of those bolting mechanisms that push a pin into the ceiling
and floor for the inside door.

Anyway, any suggestions would be appreciated - I'd really like to
get this working so I can get the cherry picker and yard tools out of the garage
so I can do some honest to goodness sworking (and there's this 10" lathe sitting
in the back that I gotta get on its stand and put the saddle back on...).
