Unusual Deadbolt Lock Repair at Kuppersmith Project Home

By: Danny Lipford

Take a look at this unique lock repair the homeowners did to the original deadbolt lock on the Kuppersmith Project house. When the latch on the lock broke off years ago, it was replaced with a Phillips head screwdriver which was attached to the doorknob with a string.

The good news is that Schlage is partnering with us on the Kuppersmith Project. So this lock, along with all the others in the house, will be replaced. I’m looking forward to sharing with you what Schlage has planned for all of the locks, both exterior and interior, on this classic 1926 home.

    Hi Danny,
    what are your thoughts about buying August Lock (smart lock)? Is it worth to buy? If so, what deadbolt do you recommend? I live in Canada.
    Thank You!
