When we talked about cheap and effective home security systems, we did mention deadbolts. Installing them can aid as a part of your home security system and the truth is that it is not at all difficult to install a deadbolt. You just need some basic tools and the entire project will last around 1 hour. Those that have experience will be able to get it done even faster.
Make sure that you have a good electric drill that has spade bits and hole saws, tape measure, screwdrivers, a pencil, a chisel and a combination square before you start. A deadbolt lock set will be included in what you buy. You have a template that will aid you with the measurements. The suitable sized drill bits have to be selected. However, most of the deadbolts will need a 2 and 1 eight inch hole saw for the body and a 1 inch spade for sliding bolt assemblies.
