Deadbolt Locks: Simple yet Secure

Deadbolt locks have been a staple in residential and commercial security for years and they are not likely to go anywhere in the near future. The reason for this is the relatively high amount of security that they are able to offer at a surprisingly low cost. Almost every door has a simple knob lock fixed to it, which can be easily compromised by an experienced lock pick. Some home and business owners who are victimized by burglars are surprised to hear that simply having a deadbolt installed on their entry door could have prevented their loss from occurring, yet it is true.

Deadbolts are an inexpensive and effective addition to commercial and residential security.

A standard knob lock can easily be bypassed using a credit card or other flat object. Thanks to the nature of the deadbolt lock, this is not an effective way to disable it. It is highly recommended to have a deadbolt installed on any entry door which only currently uses a standard knob lock just for this reason. Without a deadbolt that is properly installed an experienced thief can disable a knob lock in just a matter of seconds, leaving your home open to burglary. By having and arming a deadbolt lock on your exterior doors, you can achieve a much higher level of security than with just a standard knob lock.

While simply having a deadbolt does increase the amount of security that you have on your door, receiving professional installation is key to ensuring that your lock functions properly. Having your lock just slightly misaligned can cause wear and tear or even worse, malfunction. By choosing a professional locksmith to complete the installation of your deadbolt, you can prevent yourself from needing further lock service in the future.
