Here's what my back door looks like now:


I really need to make sure I unlock the knob before I go out that way... :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

Side note: Small rock = not good window breaker
Pickaxe = GREAT window breaker

He's probably referring to one of these.

I've been meaning to get one for a while for my house. You mount it somewhere outside and lock a spare key in it . I bought one for my mother-in-law after they were broken into because I knew she left a key outside under a flower pot. They are pretty rugged and secure. For only $29 I should go ahead and buy one. Probably cheaper than a locksmith or a replacement window.

Ask, ye shall receive:

I could not find link specfic to Home Depot, but I did find a link to show the product in question:

http://www.wholesalelocks.com/shurlok-l ... ckbox.html

This lock is rather nice... uses letters instead of numbers which allows to pick a choice four letter word for your combination. Ten characters per dial, allowing for 10,000 different combinations.

Avoid this type:

http://www.wholesalelocks.com/avanti-gu ... ckbox.html

It use a push button combination which, since button order is irrelevant, only provides a set of 1024 different combinations ( 10 buttons, 2 states = 2^10 = 1024)

Even if button order were important, it would still only offer 5040 different combinations (10! / 6! = 10 * 9 * 8 * 7 = 5040).

A related story for you:
About a year after I started dating my wife, she calls me at work one day.
Here's the first thing she says...

"How do you know when you need stitches?"
:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Not what you want to hear at 9am.

It turns out that she locked herself out of the house. Rather than finding a rock to break the glass, she let her temper get the best of the situation and hit it with her fist. The result was a nasty gash that continued to bleed despite her best efforts.

Eventually she got it under control and avoided a trip to the ER.
I repaired the damage with a plexiglass panel instead of glass :D
