Security experts often refer to your locks as your first line of defense against intruders. In conjunction with your doors, your locks secure your property and your belongings while keeping those inside safe. If your doors and locks are not secure, any other security measures you have in place could be rendered useless. Unfortunately, many home and business owners lack the experience needed to select the best locks for their home or business needs. Even those who choose the correct products run the risk of installing the items incorrectly using a DIY approach.
What Kind of Lock Should I Get for My Front Door?
If you are in the process of upgrading your locks, you may already be intimidated by the sheer number of products available on the market.

Still, it also gives consumers a chance to select a product that will not fit the existing lock’s holes in the door and is often actually less secure that the existing lock. Home stores and online sites usually offer low price cheaply made locks, as if low price were more important than the safety of your home and family.
