I am a security person, and the one problem that always comes up when something is stolen is the fact that there are locks that are a pain in the but# to lock. This is the case with most deadbolt locks, as you leave your house, the lock in the door knob, all you have to do is turn it, but you have to get out your keys to engage the deadbolt.
I just watched HGTV's "I Want That" and saw the first product that I actually thought "I have to have that". It is a deadbolt lock, that, to engage, all you have to do is to turn the outer metal collar. No key, nothing to do but turn the collar.
It has an inside thumbturn lock, so it isn't a problem for the fire service side of me. I do not work for this company, I just wanted to bring it to the attention of more people. Here is the link:
I will be buying one for both my condo in NY and my new house in VT!

Are you kidding me? I can see how this product is an easier to use version but i highly doubt that deadbolts constitue a pain in the butt..Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

This seems like a good idea, and not because I'm lazy. When I'm responding out the door from home, fishing out the right key, etc. IS a royal pain you-know-where. Keys to the Chief's Buggy and the Station Keys are on one ring, stuff at home is on another, etc....Never use Force! Get a Bigger Hammer.

When they're too lazy or stupid to give the right of way to a 20 ton code 3 BRT, they definitely can't be bothered to fish a key out.There goes the neighborhood.

As long as it cannot be UN-locked from the outside in that manner,it sounds like a good idea.
