After moving into a new home here in the North Georgia Mountains, you should immediately replace its deadbolt locks.  It’s not just the home’s former residents that have the key, after all, but so might a relative, a friend, a neighbor, a dog-walker, and others.

You may call a locksmith for the job, but you can save some money if you can do-it-yourself.

In this detailed, 2-minute video, you’ll learn how to remove and replace a deadbolt lock using nothing but a Phillips screwdriver and a deadbolt from a hardware store.  It’s a simple project that requires little mechanical skill.

And one that can make your new home more safe.
