Re: Door locks?

Possibly your locks need adjusting. Metal expands as it warms. I don't have that problem. No locks.. yet.
This post is my opinion. It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

Re: Door locks?

I used a garage door dead bolt lock on my back door. I didn't add the key because I didn't want to put another hole in the door. I also changed out my bi-fold door to a "standard" heavy duty household door. Now I have pretty decent security...I hope!
