In her comment on our last post, Amy hoped that the latchless door was not our front door. Just thought I'd include some pics of our entry way and the security involved.
From the inside, you can see our front door in the first picture. Well, at least you can see the first of the doors. Open that door and you will find another, as shown in the second picture.
The first door (the inside door), only has three dead bolt type locks.
On the second door (the outside door) you can see a closeup of four of the 17 dead bolt cylinders that constitute the locks on that door. That's right -- 17! Eleven down the front edge of the door (as shown in the picture) an 3 more on each the top and the bottom of the door. It requires two complete turns of the key on that door to get them all locked!
With the three on the inside door, that makes 20! And that, of course, is why there's no latches on the inside doors. They are all on the front doors!
How's that for security, Amy?!
