Mr. Bothem home is located in Upland, California. Mr Bothem purchased new locks for his home. We talked and decided it was time for new locks. Now that the deadbolt was replaced the bottom lock needed cleaning. It was full of dirt and grease. To complete the door a simple cleaning was done to get the lock to work again. A Defiant deadbolt lock was installed temporary until the actual deadbolt that came with this door was returned from the locksmith.
This post shows the six steps to replacing a hardwood front door Defiant dead bolt lock.
