Evaluate door locksets for quality based on their grade rating
You should definitely focus solely on the locks graded by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) when making a choice. Our specialists recommend confirming that the rating is for the entire lockset and not for just some of the components. The devices rated with Grade 3 offer the highest level of security.
Remove rust from locks as soon as you notice it
Mix salt with a little bit of lemon juice to make a paste, and apply it to any rusty spots. You should keep the paste on for three hours and then rub the surface vigorously using a soft cloth. If this does not help, you can use a commercial rust remover. Ensure that it is completely safe.
