garage door deadbolt lock

Installed one on the side door all the way through so it is keyed. The second on the rear door is NOT keyed, so only needed to install the plate with the bolt, which took all of 10 minutes. Thanks for the simple, great idea.

The side door is thinner than the garage door standard, and the shimming necessitated cutting out a notch in the outer handle and there is a small key clearance issue but really that's a grand idea.

Now for the front door lock... Don't want to go with the big bolt, but think the lock on the bottom with the "loop" at the bottom of the door might not be enough of a visual deterrent.
