Deadbolt if you have to lock something up. Requires a drill and the lock which is like 10 bucks at Wal-Mart.

If it is for keeping your mom out during penis inspection day, but a interior lock which screws into the door and frame for like 5.

New doornobs are what? 4 Screws and some instructions written for housewive? Just go spend 12$ at a hardware store.

Most bedroom doors have knobs with "privacy" locks on them that can be opened fromt he outside with a "key" that is really a small screwdriver. Is this what you seek? What do you have now? non-locking doorknob? no knob? no door? Do you want a keyed lock? Replace bedroom doorknob with exterior locking knob. At this point your lock is far stronger than your bedroom door, which is probably hollow. If you want good security from druggie housemates, replace door with steel-sheathed exterior door. Replace the frame with the one that came with the door. It should have steel reinforcement too. This is a lot of work from a first time DIYer. Put quality deadbolt on door, and suddenly you are the least desireable person to steal from, as long as the window isn't too easy to bash in.

Get a bigger knife than he had. Bonus: if you kill him in self defense you get all his belongings because I doubt anyone will come clean out his shit after he dies.

Something like this.

Should be cheap because locks like this are quite shit really.

Should be easy because really, all you need to do is screw the parts onto the door/frame. Might want to pre drill for the screws if you want to be really clever.

A locking door knob with key costs 5 dollars, and it's two screws. Fuck off nigger.

I just put one on my shed door, took 10 minutes. If it doesn't fit right, hit it with a hammer till it does.

Guys, op here. The whole reason I need the lock is because I've been watching tons of tranny porn and beating off with my ankles above my head so I can blow loads on my own face. Last time I was doing it while fingering my butt and my mom opened the door really quickly and the shitty hinge lock I had popped off.

Come on guys I need your help. I can't buy a locking door knob from wal-mart or where ever since I spend all my money on thigh high socks, plus my mom doesn't have any tools. FUCK.

>> No.1633057

Just remove the door so no one can open it

For the outside, use a bigger one you can put a padlock in
