I was just trying to say that you don't need to sell away half your collection when your original plan with the improved hinges and lock would be enough.
You don't even have a cordless drill? Now that's just not right.
Child = SAFE
Never argue with drunks or crazy people.
Just install a couple of "dead pins" I remove a hinge screw from the door side, in the middle of the hinge-now install a three inch long wood screw about a #12-14, up to the beginning of the smooth part where the threads end. Take a hacksaw or bolt cutter&remove the very head of the screw, leaving a 1/2" stub sticking ouyt from the side of the hinge. Now either remove the hinge screw opposite the stub& or drill a hole for the stub to enter when the door is closed. I know it sounds complicated, but this is basicall what you find on all safe doors (Hinge Side) I am a Locksmith/Gun Dealer and I do these all the time.
Thanks for posting that, Bill
I mentioned it on another thread - I thought I had ended it up here. I have my problem solved too with non removable pins... )
