Deadbolts – Old Reliable

A sure thing is a description of something which is more or less guaranteed. With a sure thing you can depend on the outcome to be a positive one and in the world of locks and the locksmith the deadbolt lock is the prime example of a sure thing.

If you look on many of the homes and businesses here in your city you will find deadbolt locks in place on most of them.

The popularity of the deadbolt lock is due to its ability to work, and work well. With features such as a strong steel make up as it’s design and the utilization of a strike plate you can be sure that deadbolts are up to the job for the protection you require.

There are a large number of manufacturers with many fine deadbolt lock products on the market and just about every locksmith would agree that their installation will aid in the purpose of a locking system, to keep you and your loved ones, items, and inventory safe!

The bolt on a deadbolt will thrown, or retracted, from a key and the turning unit inside of the lock will not throw it, however the bolt inside automatically locks, or deadlocks, when it is fully thrown.

In the easiest terms possible, the deadbolt locks is installed in the door and when it is activated, or locked, it will slide in to the door jam providing the something that cannot be moved in order to keep the door in place.

Strike plates are also one of the most effective tools used with locks to prevent unauthorized access by way of forced or kicked entry.

Called this company late last Tuesday night, I had just got off the train after working all day only to realize I did not have my car keys. Tom came right out to the station and made me a new key so I could finally get home. Thanks again for answering the phone and sending someone out in the middle of the night.
