Weslock Non-Cylindered Deadbolt

This Weslock Non-Cylinder Deadbolt is a little different from the single sided deadbolts, because unlike this Weslock non-cylinder, the single sided have to have special door prep, as they don’t have the blank plate on the outside like this one shows. Unless, you order the deadbolt with “no plate”, which is an option when ordering. This will become just like the single sided deadbolts and require the bore hole for the deadbolt to be drilled only partially through the door so from the outside it will appear as if there was no deadbolt. The Weslock Non-Cylinder with the outside plate can be used with the standard door prep (2-1/8″ bore hole and 1″ cross bore) and it will fit doors 1-3/8″ – 2″ thick (optional up to 2-1/4″). It works just like a regular deadbolt pretty much, other than it has a blank side… So it actually it really only works like the inside of a regular single cylinder or double cylinder deadbolt. This may not be the best first choice for an exterior door, because it has no way to lock from the outside. For exterior doors you would first choose a style with a keyed exterior (single cylinder or double cylinder) like this one…

Although, you could prep an additional hole if you really wanted for extra security. The Weslock Non-Cylinder Deadbolt would also work great for a bathroom or bedroom door, as long as you don’t have little children that could lock themselves inside. Maybe you have two separate rooms that share a door like some of the hotels I have seen, and with this non-cylinder deadbolt it will still allow you to have privacy. There are many places you could use this Weslock Non-Cylinder Deadbolt, the sky is truly the limit. And if you are not a fan of the Polished Brass finish, this deadbolt is also available in Satin Chrome and Antique Brass.
