Installing a Deadbolt Lock....


Posted by Deanna on February 6th, 2001 10:31 AM

I will be installing a deadbolt lock on my front door this weekend. First time for me! Am looking for any suggestions or advice BEFORE I start drilling the hole!

Went to Home Depot. Bought the Schlage deadbolt, and the drill bit kit. Had a one-on-one lesson with the expert at Home Depot. So I feel pretty confident that I know how to do it, except...

The door is steel on both surfaces with a wood core in the middle. I understand I'll have to drill partially through the front, then through the back. Will use the template to mark my spot.

Any advice before I put the drill to the door????? Guess I'm kinda chicken!

Thanks.....
