WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A STANDARD LOCK AND A HIGH SECURITY LOCK?
August 31st, 2018
Reputable lock shops can provide high security locks as a replacement for standard hardware, which can be defeated in several ways. It pays to be careful here, though, because there are a lot of “locksmiths” out there that will claim to install a high security lock, only to replace poor hardware with even poorer hardware, while charging their customer a lot of money for nothing.
High security locks resist picking, bumping and drilling. These threats are more common than most people realize, as anyone can buy a key online that can be used for bumping lock pins.
The most trusted brands in high security locks are Medeco and Mul-T-Lock. If another lock is suggested, check it out online to be sure it is all that it’s being represented as.
