    The mystery is far better than the reality...,,except a few decent bottles of booze, those are pretty good. V:teach:

    Do any of you guys have combination locks on your front doors? Pros and cons? Recommendations?

    Looking good, SG.

    Have you considered smart locks?

    Why do you want the combination lock?

    Thanks poorsod. I have, but I'd rather have one that doesn't need batteries. Definitely don't want one that requires a cell phone or that's hooked up to the internet. Schlage and other companies make ones with key pads, but they usually require batteries. There are some non-electronic ones, but the ones I've seen are either not very good-looking or probably too low quality.

    @sugarbutch, I just want the convenience of one less thing to remember, to carry, or to lose.
