Re: Recommendations for a bump-proof exterior door lock?

I was trying to look up what were door Door Strikes that were mentioned in a previous post here: I neglected to give you a link to what I'm talking about. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00D2K33NG/ And I have run into two major kinds. The kind where both the normal lock and the deadbolt at one long plate...

Re: Recommendations for a bump-proof exterior door lock?

I don't have any experience with electronic entry systems. I'm not a fan of electronics, for a variety of reasons, one of which you already mentioned, how do you open the door if the battery goes dead or the power goes out? Actually, it has two pins you can jump a 9-volt to to power it up in case t...

Re: Recommendations for a bump-proof exterior door lock?

No, I understand a home is obviously not going to have commercial grade security, I am not asking for something that will be corporate-level or unbreakable, just what would be a good idea to get.

It comes with a jamb, but I am not sure what kind, I thought the importance was the length of the screws, not so much the jamb itself? Don't most locks also come with a jamb?

Re: Recommendations for a bump-proof exterior door lock?

Regardless, the lock is only as secure as the door itself, less the door and more so the jamb. So, if you are upgrading your locks, make sure you extend this to upgrading the strike-plates on the jamb as well. The whole door and frame is being replaced actually, so I figured might as well get a new...

Recommendations for a bump-proof exterior door lock?

Despite lock-bumping having been nearly common knowledge now years ago, most locks nowadays still don't seem to be bump proof. I wanted to put in some new locks, and figured might as well make them bump proof too. Now, I know that no lock is 100% infallible, I am not asking for a literally unbreakab...
