services also include installation of simple security locks such as this deadbolt.
This type of modern deadbolt can be purchased at Home Depot for around $20. It is a good-looking secure lock that can only be opened from the inside. It is attached/secured with three simple panhead wood screws through a brass plate .
Any dead-bolt lock is better than the common key-in-knob variety. We spent weeks prying, hammering, picking, pummeling, and drilling locks, and few scored well. A handful proved far more susceptible than most.
Drills easily open most locks
With all except one lock classified as high-security, even an ordinary cordless drill could drill out the cylinders in 2 minutes or less. Our tests on the Medeco, which has hardened cylinders across the product line, ruined the locks but denied access–so you’d have to replace the lock but not your home’s contents.
