A controlled-access lock.
on April 20, 2016
What are you buying your lock for?
I have four different types of doors on my home. I have slider doors, entry doors, screen doors, and storage doors. The sliders are protected with bars that have heavy-duty locks with triggers to my alarm system. My main entry door is set up the same way.
With the screen doors and storage doors, security is much less of a concern. For a lock, I'm looking more for something that will serve as a deterrent in case someone accidentally tries to open the wrong door. That's where this lock comes into play.
I have two of these. One is on a storage closet. The other is on a screen door. I only use the lock on the screen door when I'm home and the weather is nice. The storage closet really doesn't have anything valuable in it. For the purpose I need it for, the lock is perfect.
Here's the deal. This is not a lock for security. It is, however, a very high quality lock that will last a long time for those places that I want to control access to but security isn't necessarily as important. I would like to give this product five stars because it perfectly fits that purpose, and that purpose is what it was designed to do. However, I also don't want to be misleading. This is not a lock to secure your home. I could probably pick this lock in a few minutes, and I'm not an expert. It is, however, as high quality of a lock as you can find. I recommend it if what you need fits what I just described
