Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Can I install the Surelock myself?

A. Yes. It takes about 30 minutes depending on your skill level. If you can drill a hole then you have the skills to install Surelock yourself. Otherwise, you can pay a locksmith, carpenter, or a handyman to install it for you. If you have any questions please give us a call.

Q. What kind of tools would I need to install Surelock?

A. You would need, a power drill, Robertson # 8 screwdriver, 1/8" drill bit, steel or wood for the screws that hold the lock onto the door, ¾" drill bit, wood or masonry to drill into the floor, and a pencil and safety glasses.

Q. Can I get other colors?

A. Yes. Surelock is presently available in Bright Brass and Brushed Stainless Steel. We can also powder coat our product to any color you desire for a small fee. Please let us know the color when placing your order.

Q. What makes Surelock so strong and effective?

A. Our product uses the floor for its anchoring point, not the door jam. The door jam will break very easily when minimal force is applied. We use a 5/8 of an inch thick stainless steel bar attached to the door that drops into a floor plug. This is now using the floor and the door for its strength. The stainless steel bar that inserts into the floor plug has been engineered tested to withstand greater sheer force impacts of 10,000 lbs. No door or door jam will withstand that.

Q. What keeps the bad guys from reaching in and pulling up Surelock?

A. At the top of the lock you will see a locking knob. This knob moves Surelock into the different positions and also with a few twists clock wise, locks Surelock into place. This will enable anyone from reaching their hand or other objects to try and lift Surelock out of the locked position.

Q. What if I have a hollow metal door? Can I still install Surelock?

A. Yes. When you attach Surelock to the door you have to pre-drill six, 1/8" holes. When you insert the screws to attach the lock do not over tighten the screws…just hand tighten.
Pre-drill for wood doors as well.

Q. Will Surelock fit my double door entry?

A. Yes, Surelock fits almost any in-ward swinging door. We also have the Surelock Flush-Bolt that can be used on the dummy door. The two pins holding the dummy or non-active door locked are generally very small and weak and can be kick-in quite easily. That's why we suggest using the Surelock Flush Bolt as well. You will find a full description and picture or the Flush Bolt at bottom of our product page.

Q. Once installed, is Surelock difficult to use?

A. No, it's very easy to use. You should never have to bend down because you can lock and unlock Surelock from the standing position. Using the locking knob you just lift and turn into position. It's that easy.

Q. What kind of guarantee is there on Surelock?

A. Surelock has a lifetime warranty on materials and manufacturing defects. We will replace any defective product with a new one.

Q. If I don't like it, can I return it?

A. Yes. You can return Surelock within 30 days of purchase if returned in the original condition. You will get a full refund of the purchase price, not including shipping and handling. Contact us at 604-789-5625 for shipping instructions.

Q. If I move, can I take Surelock with me?

A. Yes. You will have to remove the screws and fill the holes. If you need new floor plugs please contact us and we would be happy to send you what you need.

Q. Is there a stronger or safer door lock on the market that will protect me and my family?

A. No. Surelock is the Best.
