Q: What is a high-security lock?


A: High-security locks help keep intruders out by providing increased protection from danger, making your home a safer place to live. The goal in having a high-security lock is to make an intrusion too time-consuming or too expensive to be practical. High-security locks have certain characteristics that enable them to help prevent a forced entry or manipulation. These features may include restrictive keyways, key differs, key control, high manufacturing tolerances, and resistance to manipulation and forced entry.
