There's some really good home security information in various threads around the forum. I thought it might be useful to try to keep it all in one place. Admins/mods: if you think this is a waste of time or it's already been done feel free to delete this. 😄 I'll start with a question based on the recent discussion about replacing door locks with anti-snap versions. My front and back doors have three-point deadbolts which engage when you twist the handle anti-clockwise. You then have to turn the key to lock everything in place. I don't know if the cylinders in the lock are snap-proof. I suspect they're not. My question is: if I replace the cylinder with a snap-proof version will it have any effect on the deadbolt mechanism or is that completely separate from the cylinder? Thanks.
