How To Replace Your New Home's Deadbolt Locks

After moving into a new home , you should immediately replace its deadbolt locks.  It's not just the home's former residents that have the key, after all, but so might a relative, a friend, a neighbor, a dog-walker, and others.

You may call a locksmith for the job, but you can save some money if you can do-it-yourself. 

In this detailed, 2-minute video, you'll learn how to remove and replace a deadbolt lock using nothing but a Phillips screwdriver and a deadbolt from a hardware store.  It's a simple project that requires little mechanical skill.

And one that can make your new home more safe.

45 years in the property management business this has NEVER been a problem.  Some jurisdictions require a change between tenants and the landlords just recycle old locksets which can be MORE dangerous if they fail from continued installations.....tenant gets locked out and has to call a locksmith.

Selling agents re-keying for the benefit of their clients is a VERY GOOD client gift
