NightWatch deadbolts also include BumpStop® Advanced Cylinder Technology, which resists bump attacks and keeps the deadbolt locked. With all these features, intruders can’t get in with the “right” combination, the “right” key, a bump key or anything else. BumpStop exceeds the highest ASTM international requirements (Grade Level 6) for lock bumping resistance.
Another Master Lock exclusive is the Antibacterial Silver Bonded Finish™. Everyone touches door hardware entering and existing, so Master Lock offers added protection against the spread of bacteria, mold and fungus. A permanent part of the finish on knobs, levers and deadbolts, it works 24/7 and never wears off.
Then there’s the Master Lock Vault® smartphone ‘App’ for Apple and Android, a digital “safe deposit box” service for customers and ideal for storing EKD codes. Visit www.masterlock.com for details.
* Master Lock is top-rated in Door Hardware Brand Awareness/aided recall with an 86 percent product quality rating of Excellent or Very Good among all respondents. Fifty percent of respondents rate Brand Name & Reputation as the number 1 influencer in buying decisions. Sources: Market Facts – November 2008 and NFO Tracking Study – December 2008.
