Got my front door lock installed today... Went a lot easier than planned. I'll post pics when it's light out. Really happy, only have a brass key lock exposed outside

But, it's this style ... Mounted latch mechanism (right) on bus side and catch (left) on door side... Didn't even have to cut rubber seal.

I'll get these pieces broken down, cleaned up, painted, and re-bolted

I'd picked up several different styles at hardware store and talked myself out of them... Even one of the big Master puck lock. But I wanted a single set up I could use from both sides. And I was worried about the puck lock... If someone wanted to be an ass, they could padlock me inside!

Did I mention the shortie is going to become a work truck for my carpentry business?
Here is a shot of my front door. I have the same on the rear. They can break all the windows they want, they won't get anything big out through the windows like they would the doors.

On a side note....
I just brought a queen sized mattress and box springs through my front door, by myself. And I've got the big dog house!

Wouldn't say it was simple, but the mattress went in easier than the box springs

Do you have a photo of your rear door install?
The 2 locks are as follows
The one in the handle locks the handle closed. A master key is used in it.
The other lock is the dead bolt and the key sold with the lock is used.
Never use the handle lock as the security lock.

I need to figure out how to make that work on double outswing doors.. my bluebird has a lock built into the school door on it so that one is easy..
