Jimmy Proof Lock Installation

We recommend the Ilco Jimmy Proof Lock as it is a popular lock to improve your home security. But how do we do the installation process? Find out right here:

  1. The essential tools for such an installation are a hammer, center punch, hole saw, drill, screwdriver, straightedge, masking tape, and pliers.
  2. We will then define where to place the lock and mark it on the frame using either a mortise strike or surface mount.
  3. Then we will mark the spot and drill a hole to place the cylinder.
  4. Next, we mark spots for the screws and use a drill to make holes.
  5. We then measure the thickness of the door to determine the length of the tailpiece and screws needed. With pliers, if needed, we will cut the screws.
  6. Now we will place the cylinder inside to line it up with the back plate to attach it with mounting screws.
  7. Next, we mount the deadbolt using a pair of screws and the screwdriver.
  8. Lastly, we mount the strike plate to the side.

You can do this installation yourself, but if you need help, call us.
