Standard Door Locks & Deadbolts
Sales, repairs, installations and openings. We do everything in the Greater Tampa Bay area.
Buying a new lock for your home or business requires careful consideration. Consulting with our professional locksmiths at Cheap Lock & Key will ensure you obtain aesthetically appealing locks that also fit your existing doors. We only sell the best locks. These include grade 1 locks and deadbolts used for exterior doors on homes and businesses. ANSI, American National Standards Institute, determines the grade given to a lock. Deadbolts that are grade 1 can withstand 250,000 cycles and 10 strikes against the door. The doorknob lock on a grade 1 device can withstand 800,000 cycles with six strikes against the door. It is also weight tested at 360 lbs. Grade 1 locks have gone through a series of tests to ensure a longer lifespan. Grade 1 locks are more resistant to intruders and are the strongest locks manufactured.
We prefer two types of locks for use on exterior doors. These include deadbolts and latch bolts. Deadbolt locks are commonly used. These are locked or unlocked using a key or a manual thumb-turn. Latch bolts are spring loaded locks that are continuously extended. Once the doorknob, handle or lever is engaged, the latch bolt will unlock.
Regardless of what locks you choose, we will ensure that the locks are installed correctly. Proper installation is as important as choosing the right lock. Some doors come with holes that are already drilled and ready for the locks to be installed. Others require our locksmith to drill new holes for subsequent lock installation. Our expert locksmiths are able to install your new door locks and deadbolts. We will make sure that there is no damage done to either lock or door. Many factors come into play when installing a new lock. Typically the new lock can be installed within 30 minutes.
