Compared to other locks typically found at big box stores, the Maxum Deadbolt exceeds Grade 1 ANSI/BHMA A156.36 standards for auxiliary locks with a solid brass, free turning collar and a ¼ inch diameter mounting bolts to resist wrenching, prying and hammering attaches. With a one inch throw hardened steel bolt, sawing and crowbar attacks are eliminated as well.
Hardened steel inserts and rotating pins provide drill and pick resistance in accordance with UL437 standard for safety for key locks. The bolt mechanism is designed to accommodate both mortise and drive-in applications, providing greater flexibility and ease of installation. Eight variations of finishes are available to provide an extremely close color match with existing hardware.
