Dangerous Deadbolts

Properly installed deadbolts are critical to protecting your home from forced entry, but some can also pose a hazard in case of fire or other need to quickly vacate the home. Altic Lock Service never recommends the use of double-sided deadbolts, which require the use of a key to either enter or exit. If there is glass near the lock, replace the glass with shatter-proof polycarbonate. If the concern is for a child or a dementia patient wandering away from the home, GPS-tracking systems are available that won't put lives at risk.
