    Default External Door Locks - Any suggestions?

    It is about time i addressed all my door locks
    5 external doors, all keyed different currently.

    At this point, one lock had mostly failed, can no longer use the key in it

    So i am locking at just replacing the lot

    I have 3 standard solid timber doors
    And 2 Aluminium sliding doors

    I have no dead bolts (as yet) just standard keyed locks for the timber doors

    Any suggestions here on a good system to buy?

    I may holiday rent the place in future, so i'm considering a coded lock or maybe just a coded key safe outside.

    That sounds reasonable compared to what i've just looked at mate
    Would you have a link to the model you found for that price?

    Is it one of these?


    I had no idea about Samsung Locks until you suggested them, wow, what a range!!
    Might be a bit too high tech for me and replacing the batteries will piss me off.
    But sure are impressive

    Locks only keep honest people out. A big Rottweiler would work better than that.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    Not overly interested in keeping people out, i'm more interested in getting me in

    I've had myself locked out many times now from faulty lock mechanisms

    LOL the reason i was looking at the locks i mentioned is because last
    weekend i had to get up on the roof and lift the tiles
    climb in and jump down the man hole because i left my keys in my
    mates car and couldn't get hold of him.
