Locksmith Toronto - Deadbolt Lock Purchase - Consumer Tips
Considering replacing or adding a deadbolt to your door?
listed below are the deadbolt specifications you should be looking for:
Bolt should be 1" thick with a 1" throw (bolt extended) with hardened core.
When installed, bolt should lock into place when extended. You should not be able to push the bolt back by hand.
Bolt should be constructed to include a hardened steel core.
Screws that anchor rear thumb-turn plate to front lockset should be heavy-duty at least ¼" or larger in diamater.
Lock cylinder should be constructed of 100% brass (some lock manufacturers use a combination of brass and plastic).
Deadbolt face should be 2 pieces (outer slip ring with separate lock face - some manufacturers may join both pieces together).
Outer slip ring should contain a tempered or hardened interior ring. (slip ring shouldn't be hollow)
Outer slip ring should be free moving when NOT installed.
Deadbolt should be of a 6 or 7 pin construction. (Available ONLY through locksmiths and locksmith supply houses)
When mounted to the door surface, the deadbolt face should be able to sit flush to the door to help defeat crowbar attacks.
Deadbolt should contain pick-proof pins. (Available ONLY through locksmiths and locksmith supply houses)
