I have to agree with orangeclawhammer, locks only keep honest people honest. They might slow a thief down but may not deter them. I have yet to see a door that could not be broken into by some means.

I find that a clearly marked GLOCK sticker at eye level helps with break ins . I don't bother locking the doors most of the time, they are there just to keep out the misquitos. theifs will get in if they want. you could install a vault door that looks like a regular door from the out side.

Haven't seen this entry set, but $60 is pretty cheap. Not to mention the quality of stuff from the big box stores. If the lock is the weakest point in your entry, go to a real lockset company
