Deadbolt to E-Deadbolt on entry door


Recommended Posts

While I had my door apart for adjustments, and liking the convenience of the electronic door locks.

Today I removed the original keyed deadbolt and installed an Electronic Keypad Deadbolt (Defiant from Home Depot about $60.00)

It was no easy, bolt in task.  Had to open up the steel frame hole to a more round shape, had to disassemble the new 'bolt' part to attach the extension.  Had to modify it to make the connection with the extension.  Then, to get the inside 'box' to fit the area available, I had to mount the whole thing upside down.  

Works great,, no more keys, lights up to see the keypad in the dark, one button locking.  Worth the effort (to me at least)
