Are all locks graded?
The locks made by major manufacturers usually receive an ANSI grade from 1 to 3 with one being the highest. However, it is up to the company to decide if it will use this grading system for its products. This does not necessarily mean that the locks which are not formally graded are of poor quality. Still, you may want to do more research on them when you go shopping.
How can I be sure of my security?
You will feel confident once you know all entry points have good security locks and are hard to be broken into. So, you need to reinforce security at each entrance with motion detectors and alarm systems. Lock repair but also maintenance will add to your confidence.
Would a locksmith work on different brands?
