We are the kind of family that never takes the time to use a key to lock the deadbolt on our front door when we leave the house. The only time the deadbolt seems to get used is at night. It was a while back but during one of the TOH projects they installed a deadbolt that could be locked from the outside by turning the face instead of needing to use a key. It looked just like a normal deadbolt except the housing had some raised grooves on it so it could be gripped and turned. Unlocking of course required the key as normal. Has anyone seen such a deadbolt and if so, any recommendations on where I could pick one up? Thanks, Jim
