Supplement Your Lock with a Deadbolt

Many homes are equipped with only a locked doorknob. But doorknobs use a latch system that is easy for a thief to break into. All that is needed is to break the spring, and the doorknob will open.

The security of a deadbolt on your house or business ensures the safety and security of your valuables. When installed correctly no burglar would be able to kick in your door. Keep in mind most general contractor builders that install deadbolts may not be as kick resistant. Generally these types of deadbolts have just one and a half inch strike plate screws installed. To guarantee you have real security your deadbolt lock installation needs to have 3 inch screws so that they connect to the 2x4 framing of the door, this makes a stronger safe and secure deadbolt that is kick resistant.

Many times we meet individuals who have home security systems installed and believe a deadbolt is not required. They believe the sound of the alarm would deter the intruder.

But the response time of your local police may be 15 minutes, which means the intruder could be in your home fairly quickly. With a proper deadbolt this is generally a deterrent to a lot of crooks.
