Deadbolt Lock VS. Door Knob Lock
You probably always heard to install Deadbolt.
Did you ever wander why?
Here is few reasons why.
deadbolt are stronger because there is 2 screws holding the cylinder, there is 2 screws holding the door knob.
The difference it’s on door knob (in must of them) you can pull it out with a little pressure. On deadbolt you can’t.
Door knob are very easy to unlock, easy to pick, and easy to push a card or any tool between the lintel to the latch,
The latch of doorknob are very small so it’s easy way to kick the door and get in.
Deadbolt have big and strong latch therefore it’s a lot more secure and Difficult to break in.
Door knob it’s easy to twist with any hardware and get access.
Deadbolt doesn’t have this option.
The reasons above doesn’t mean you should have a deadbolt, it’s just to show you the difference between them.
I’m myself as a locksmith always recommend my customers to install door knob & deadbolt
If you can’t install both install the deadbolt.
If it’s where us to be a door knob and it’s not 100% mach take a drill or any hardware tools you think going to work for it, go to lintel and make the hole Deeper it’s should fix the problem.
Sometimes you need to make the hole wider.
