Best deadbolt

What is the best deadbolt for a home? I want something strong as hell. I cannot put a price on security, so give me some suggestions. I do not have windows on or near the door I want this on, so I really don't need that removable inside latch key.

Hi Mark;
The "best" deadbolt for your home?
I have Medeco deadbolts on my house because I beleive them to be one of the best on the market.
I say "one of" the best because there are many high security deadbolts available, and opinions on which is the best vary from one Locksmith to the other.
A visit to your local Locksmith should help you see the difference between "high security" and the "run of the mill" big box store products.
After making your decision on deadbolts, don't forget to reinforce the door frame as well, as that becomes the weak point once a good deadbolt is installed. Extended strike plates is what you'll need for the frame.

Just remember that you get what you pay for.

Hope that helps
Regards
