  1. I just looked this up on Amazon. $678? Is that right? Holy cow!

    Also, are you paid to endorse these products? If so you have a moral obligation to disclose it.

    I know locksmiths have a code of ethics and it seems like it should cover things like this.

  2. Everyone should check out Mul-t-lock deadbolts. Very good security for far more reasonable prices. Yes, you get what you pay for but it's a matter of diminishing returns.

  3. You hit the nail on the head. Most illegal entries through a door are by force not picking the lock to gain entry. You can have the best lock in the world but if your door and frame are not reinforced it won't even slow down someone who wants entry. Now added to a great door and frame combination this lock is awesome.

  4. Tracy Reed: Read the discription "Mr. Locksmith™ is an ABLOY® Protec Authorized Dealer." We also sell and install Schlage Primus, Medeco and ASSA.

  5. Hiro Fox: What if the intruder has a chainsaw? What kind of residential door would deter that?

    I have "Zombie Proof" deadbolts! Working on Vampire and Werewolf proof Deadbolts.

  6. If you happen to visit Finland, especially Hämeenlinna, sometimes you might want to pop in their prison museum to check out display of "vempele." It was used to "pick" abloy locks back in eighties and nineties, before protec started appearing in most doors. Against protec, you have to copy the key somehow, or otherwise it's all bruteforce/luck.

  7. I'm new to your channel and really like your videos. Very informative. This lock seems really interesting, but it seems to me that it's only as good as the door it's installed on. You mentioned this lock is on your house. I'm wondering if you'd recommend either a metal door or some kind of solid core hardwood?

  8. You know, I never thought I'd like watching locksmith videos, but I find your videos very informative and interesting. Thanks for doing these.

  9. Great lock no doubt impossible to pick, all those discs, varied height false gates etc. problem is you can drive a ten cent bolt through it and blow the back out, at least as of two weeks ago.

  10. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tc8LJiBuOc. Easy way to defeat this lock. If someone wants in bad enough they will get in. Can be done in under a minute.

  11. Hi ! I was wondering what do you think about " Door Guardian " and " Door Devil " I have purchase them to prevent Home Invasion at night …

  12. Of course, with that particular door, you just break the glass and reach inside to flip the deadbolt lever, but yeah, it's a good deadbolt. Consumers keep buying doors with glass and/or sidelights. Kind of defeats the money you pay for deadbolts unless you go with a double cylinder deadbolt (needs a key on the inside to lock and unlock). I used to have one at an apartment and when I had a break in through a window, the bad guy had to exit out the same window and leave my large tv and other stuff behind. He had my clothes basket filled with my stuff but could not get it out the window, lol.

  13. I do think that the Protect 2 is a great lock but I'd rather own the Mul T Lock Hercules with an MT5+ core due to the double ball bearing dead bolt and reinforced strike plate.

  14. Nice having a $300 deadbolt on a front door with glass panes in door and beside the door, though. Knock one of those out, reach down with a tool to throw the inside latch, and while it isn't true surreptitious/non-destructive entry, it's fast and fairly covert. Replacing the glass is probably fairly straightforward after entry.

    (I do love those locks, though.)

  15. Schlage B660 or the B560 Deadbolts are less expensive but still a very good deadbolt. Make sure you get it supplied with the C123 or S123 keyway. You will need to contact a Locksmith or online to order the deadbolts.

  16. What people dont know. Its not the lock that makes the door secure.
    Though yes there are crappy locks and can be picked in seconds.
    But its the 1-Inch deadbolt hole side that is the only thing that is keeping your front door secure.
    We need to come up with better ways to secure front doors,
    because the 1/4-inch WOOD thats between the door jam and the deadbolt lock hole is the only thing standing between your house and a thief.

  17. You put that lock on a $179 dollar pre hung door from menards…how do I know? I bought the exact same on. You know how I would get in? I would take out the top part of the cheap, half pane half moon glass….so, sweet you have a $500 lock on a terrible door. If you were paranoid you would have bought a panic room door, and once inside, I would have a steel cage bolted into the frame of the house, set in concrete, so even if they do manage to kick in the door, drill, etc…they would be stuck behind bars, and have to use a plasma torch to get through.

  18. Hi, my front door is made of steel and in order to open/close it one must turn the key one full turn. By doing so Steel pins come out of the four sides of the door and enter the frame. What's the best lock you would recommend for such mechanism.

  19. Good luck with your military teaching LOL… ONE 8mm screw centered over the cylinder and ONE hammer will get you in, in less than a second :). The brass safety ring, holding the cylinder in place is the weak link of this garbage.

  20. Abloy and Best … https://youtu.be/h0ytguKDlx0 I don't have your model but if you want send lock here and get video how good it realy are.

  21. the average criminal don't pick locks they use a crowbar at the frame    at the weak spot only locksmith picks locks to show their profession skill and try to save money  there customer I rather see you teach how to install   different panic lock and magnetic locks on store front stop teaching criminals how to open doors

  22. The abloy can be opened in a few seconds with a hammer & punch. They use a cheap retaining clip to hold the core in. A decent smack on a punch & the core flies out the back

  23. What about the method on other videos where the guy takes out an Abloy lock with a bolt and a hammer due to the cheap copper retaining ring? Seems one could pop the core, open the door pretty quickly with minimal visible damage (say from the street or a neighbors house).

  24. Uh.. Is that a double front door? That lock isn't securing a damn thing! The other door's latches are the only security to speak of there. (Also, in-door windows, LOL fail) You're proud of this??? REALLY???

  25. Like a lot of the armchair master locksmiths and hammer owner/operators in these comments, I've also seen Bosnian Bill's 3+ year-old video on the Protec (not Protec2) retaining ring defect. Understand that this is an issue with the older series locks and only in certain circumstances, largely sub-optimal installs (a vice being an extreme example).

    Also, locks are deterrents and delay mechanisms, not an all-in-one solution for physical security (even impressive bits of engineering like some higher end Abloys and Mul-T-Locks). They'll only ever be as good or terrible as whatever they're mounted in:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hx5aKlmZITM

    The fact that so many of you can whip out your hammer, office supplies, .50 cal, thermite, liquid nitrogen, Abrams tank, or antique harpsichord and loudly bypass a $200+ lock whilst drooling all over your keyboard doesn't make for a great argument against the quality of the lock itself.

  26. Why you doors are opening to inside? In finland (home of abloy) they open to outside. Much much harder to slam door open, basically impossible you have to go true door. Also escaping from inside to outside is easier example in situation of fire (especially if there is a lot of people and they are pushing towards escape).

  27. Great lock the only problem is it's $625.00. I am sure my 4.5lb Chihuahua will scare away any burglars before they get in.

  28. Yet windows are made of glass..
    Im a firefighter, im always surprised how paranoid people are with door locks, had a colleague trying to smash a door in a fire for half a minute, then when i came i pulled him aside and broke the glass window next to it, took 2 seconds, and, just fyi, it can be done silent with something on the glass.
    Putting some amazing lock on your door is false safety, most break ins actually doesn't happen via the front door.

  29. I've got a "few rather expensive houses" throughout the U.S. I've lost my keys to, wink wink… Is this guy for hire to help if I pay for travel expenses. Oh and don't ask why I tell you to drive away fast….

  30. huxleypig69 on youtube says you're a lier.shows he has a tool to pic protec 2.could you reply because my friends and i think he's lying.

  31. I saw a video where a company at the customers request, made a door that literally could withstand the blast of 4 pounds of C4 and still open easily, but no one could get in without him letting them in. The construction of the house and doors were made of 3/4 inch armor plate steel. This house was built to withstand just about anything short of a nuclear bomb!

  32. Any change to this nearly 4 year old recommendation? Is this still the highest security deadbolt one can choose for their doors? Thank you.

  33. MR.locksmith HAHAHAHA! You crack me up you joke. How much did they pay you to advertise their product? BTW it's an easy pick.
