|Schlage B60N deadbolt (top)|
A common attack against deadbolts involves drilling out the mounting screws so the housing can be removed and the bolt retracted with a screwdriver. On most Grade 3 deadbolts, this can be accomplished in less than a minute (provided one knows where to drill). Also, the noise created by doing this is minimal, making it an effective method for criminals to gain entry. For this reason, I offer my customers the Schlage B60N. Like most Schlage deadbolts, this one comes with a reinforced housing designed to thwart drilling attacks.
