Full Transcript: We all want to believe that our door locks provide our families with the best security possible, but thanks to the internet it's actually getting easier for break-ins to occur. A recent check showed YouTube alone has more than forty videos available, providing how-to instructions on lock bumping. A relatively simple attack technique using specially cut keys to defeat conventional pin and tumbler locks. Until now there hasn't been an affordable alternative for homeowners wanting to install more secure lock and deadbolts. Kwikset just introduced SmartKey, the first residential door locks providing BumpGuard Protection, available at national home improvement retailers. When I first read about these lock bumping break-ins in the news, I could only find some expensive locks to take care of this kind of problem. So I was thrilled when I found out that I could go down to my local home improvement store and buy these locks within my price range. It's the patented new lock technology that makes this product different. Unlike traditional pin and tumbler lock designs, Kwikset has a patented side locking bar with racks and pins that are made of stainless steel for improved strength and two steel balls inserted at the front of the key face to resist attack from drilling. All SmartKey locks come with BumpGuard for protection against lock bumping. So I saw all these videos on the internet about lock bumping, I told my dad about it and he took care of the problem, put SmartKey locks on all my doors. Now I feel so much better. SmartKey's deadbolt has earned ANSI grade one heavy-duty commercial security rating. The affordably priced SmartKey comes in a variety of decorative finishes, styles and features a lifetime mechanical and finish warranty.
