About two-thirds of all burglaries involve forcible entry, according to the FBI’s 2012 statistics. The door to your home or business is the first line of defense against unwanted entry. Standard locks can easily be pried open because they use a spring mechanism. A deadbolt is much more difficult for burglars to pry open. Talk to the experts at Vista Lock & Safe Co. in Vista about deadbolt installation
to improve the security of your property.
The locking mechanism in a deadbolt can only be opened with a key from the outside. A knob or another key can unlock the deadbolt from inside, depending on your preference. Newer technology is available for coded deadbolts that operate electronically, which makes them easier to open if the user has mobility problems.
