I thought everyone in the world of hardware had already seen this video, but last night I ran across someone who hadn’t, so here it is.  I didn’t want to post it until the full episode became available on ABC.com.

Although I’m really happy to see a residential deadbolt perform so well in the clip below, I do feel bad for Alex. But I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – traditional locksets are effective for protecting homes, classrooms, and other openings.  Most locksets comply with the requirements for egress and life safety, fire protection, and accessibility.

If your door already has a lockset, why spend money on an additional gadget that may inhibit egress or be deployed by an unauthorized person to secure a room and commit a crime?
