Security Strength Tests

Security tests measure how well a lock or deadbolt can withstand impact – in other words, would it remain locked (secure) during a possible attack? A Deadbolt with an ‘A’ rating in Security, for example, is subjected to the Cylinder Vertical Impact Test, which mimics a ram or sledge hammer attack by requiring a 22-pound weight to hit a locked cylinder 10 consecutive times from a height of 40 inches.
