The Dead Bolt
“The easiest way to prevent an intruder is with a deadbolt lock on the door.” According to, New York Times Home and Garden article, however, read, “A cheap deadbolt is no bargain.” When you are shopping for a deadbolt, there are three qualities to look for according to Gale Johnson, editor in chief of the trade publication, “The Locksmith Ledger.” First, it should be labeled “Grade 1”, “Grade 2” or “Grade 3”.
“Grade 3” considered one of the weakest and should probably be avoided, as should the label, “Professional Grade.” The article goes on to say, you get what you pay for and that a good and reliable locksmith, who has been in the business for many years, is the best person to contact.

What is a deadbolt lock?
A deadbolt lock By definition is, “A lock bolt that’s moved if you turn a knob or key without the action of a spring.” Naturally, it is a lock that is only able to be opened through a key or knob. These types of locks are not spring activated, and you cannot open them with a knife or other objects. Nor is it easily battered or bored which affords for great security regarding potential forced entry.
What are the advantages of a deadlock lock?
Many times, it can become quite confusing when presented with the task of knowing what one needs in achieving the best security regarding an office or commercial property. Some key advantages of a deadbolt lock are that they have a unique mechanism which gives the highest protection against a forceful break-in. On the other hand, standard locks Can be unlocked by using the force of a crowbar, or other metal instruments, because they operate using a spring mechanism. The deadbolt locks are the opposite; they are nearly impossible to break in these ways.
Another advantage of the deadbolt lock is that it acts as a deterrent to an intruder due to its resistance. The resistance factor is hugely beneficial since it discourages the intruder. The intruder recognizes that the chances of being caught are higher due to the amount of time it takes to dismantle the deadbolt lock.
