“People assume that the locks sold to the general public are secure. A lot of times, when the label says ‘fortress’ or ‘faultless’ or ‘defiant,’ they’re easy to pick, and the strength of the bolt isn’t very strong. The bottom line is, you get what you pay for.”

Quote from Howard Nevitt, a locksmith and store owner in Seattle, from a NY Times story about buying deadbolts and door locks that’ll scare off thieves.
