Our shelters come standard with a dead bolt lock. This lock is to secure the shelter when not in use. The deadbolt lock should not be used when you are in the shelter during a severe weather or intruder event. The three horizontal locking pins inside the shelter are all that is required. Deadbolts in the locked position, mechanical handles, keyed mechanical handles, electric keypads, or any type of locking device that could be damaged from projectiles or intruders should not be used when shelters/safe rooms is being occupied. Damage to these parts could lead to entrapment inside the shelter.
The Lock-Medeco high security deadbolt is drill resistant and pick proof. This allows you to use your shelter/safe room as a lockable safe for your valuables.
