ANSI Door Lock Grades Explained

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) grading system was developed years ago to standardize a testing procedure to measure the durability and strength of a door lock. This grading system applies to both residential and commercial door locks. Composed of three different grades, the ANSI grading system gives homeowners and business owners a good idea of lock quality and reliability. ANSI examines six different qualities to determine a lock's grade:

  • Strength Cycles - How many uses a lock can withstand before a replacement lock is needed)
  • Operational - This refers to a door's ability to latch when it is closed
  • Security - The effectiveness of the lock's security
  • Material - What kind of material is the lock made of?
  • Finish - Satin, nickel-plated, bronze, etc.

Grade 1 Locks

These locks offer the highest level of security and are most often used by institutions like hospitals, schools, and even museums. These locks also have the highest life expectancy, though they can be much more complex and require an expert residential or commercial locksmith in cityname to install. In today's day and age, many more homeowners are opting for Grade 1 locks (like electronic locks) for the most peace of mind. This classification of lock must hold up against 800,000 cycles, six door strikes and a 360-pound weight test.

Grade 2 Locks

These locks are great for residential areas with more foot traffic, like a door that leads to an apartment complex or suite of rooms. These locks can also suffice for small businesses that need a higher level of security than Grade 3 locks. Use these locks when you want to secure access to areas with valuable equipment or sensitive documents. This classification of lock requires 400,000 cycles, four door strikes, and a 250-pound weight test.

Grade 3 Locks

This grade of lock is best suited for residential purposes and is considered standard door hardware. This kind of lock is the least expensive and should never be used in a high-traffic area like a lobby or storefront. However, these locks would be suitable for areas without much foot traffic like storage closets or areas without expensive merchandise. Because these locks are easiest to bypass, consider upgrading your Grade 3 locks with anti-bump and anti-pick technology. This classification of lock requires 200,000 lock cycles, two door strikes, and a 150-pound weight test.

"What this group did especially our seniors who lost by close to 200 points to Landmark their freshmen year at the region meet is remarkable," Holy Innocents’ coach Stephen Jayaraj said. "We needed the full commitment of coaches, athletes, parents and supporters to make this possible. To go out of A Private winning both the 4x400 and team title will stay with us for a lifetime. These kids will be remembered forever."

Mount Vernon finished 19th (10), while Atlanta International was 23rd (6).

Whitefield Academy got state titles from Brenden Vanderpool in the pole vault (15-feet-2-inches) and Taylor Wade in the 3,200 (9:37.25).

"Every single point the boys scored, just like the girls, ended up mattering and counted," Marist coach Matt McMurray said. "I’m really so proud of our coaching staff for doing what they did this whole season, getting everybody prepared and ready to have their best days on the most important day. And, I’m really proud of our student-athletes for showing up and performing with such heart and consistency."

Tommy Latham won the 3,200 with a time of 9:40.40 to lead the way for the War Eagles.

Dominant Major Leads WVU to Backyard Brawl Win

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The West Virginia University baseball team used a dominant performance on the mound, mixed in with a trio of three-run innings to take down rival Pitt, 9-1, on Tuesday night at Wagener Field at Monongalia County Ballpark.

Freshman right-handed pitcher tossed six, no-hit frames for WVU (29-18), while the Mountaineers put three runs on the board in the first, fourth and seventh innings. Major earned the win, his second of the year, while Jonathan Bautista took the loss for Pitt (26-20).

The win secured the Backyard Brawl season series over the Panthers, 2-1.

"He's getting a little better every time out," WVU coach said of Major. "If he continues to get better from here, then he's going to have a really good future (at West Virginia)."

After Major retired UP in order in the top of the first, the Mountaineers struck for three runs to take an early lead. First, sophomore catcher scored a pair with a base hit up the middle, before junior outfielder/left-handed pitcher smacked an RBI double to score another run.

In the fourth, West Virginia doubled the lead with junior outfielder three-run home run to right. The 409-foot blast marked the Powder Springs, Georgia, native's sixth big fly of the year.

Major, meanwhile, put on a dazzling display on the mound. The Mill Hall, Pennsylvania, native didn't allow a hit in six, strong innings. He struck out a career-high eight batters and walked two on 84 pitches.

Pitt didn't record its first hit of the night until a solo homer in the top of the seventh. But sophomore outfielder bumped the WVU lead to 9-1 in the bottom half with the Mountaineers' second three-run bomb of the evening.

Following Major's exit, senior right-hander , freshman right-hander and sophomore right-hander finished the job with an inning each out of the bullpen. In all, the four Mountaineer hurlers combined to allow just two hits on the night.

At the plate, senior outfielder and freshman infielder each enjoyed two-hit nights, while Barry and Scott II led the way with three RBI each. Holbrook added two RBI in the win.

Additionally, Davis stole his 61st career base on Tuesday, moving him into a tie for No. 2 with Brandon White (2017-19) on WVU's all-time list in the category. Scott II also stole a bag, the 60th of his career.

With the victory, WVU has now won 31 of its last 33 midweek, home games in Morgantown. The squad also scored its ninth win over Pitt in its last 11 meetings.

Up next, the Mountaineers hit the road and return to Big 12 Conference play with a three-game series at No. 21 Oklahoma from May 13-15, in Norman. First pitch of Friday night's series opener is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - A dire shortage is now putting even more strain on new parents across the metro.

Baby formula continues to run low nationwide. Many store shelves are left empty, and prices are now reflecting the problem.

The average cost is up as much as 18-percent over the last 12 months.

“There was a bit of panic as to what are we going to do to feed our child?” said Amar Mohan, father of two.

Mohan and his wife have a 2-year-old and a 3-month-old. The scarcity has left them both scrambling to feed their infant.

“Initially, it was just going anywhere and everywhere to find it. So I think we drove anywhere from 60 miles to 75 to get the powder because there was nothing in any of the stores nearby - even in Roswell, Duluth, Sandy Springs - there was nothing,” said Mohen.

Datasembly provides access to billions of grocery and retail pricing records from every store at hundreds of retailers. They said during the last week of April, more than 40-percent of baby formulas were out of stock in stores. Some fear that number is only going to get worse

For new mother Allison Allday, who recently switched her son to baby formula, she was terrified the first time she saw the empty shelves.

“It’s been a wild ride. It’s been full of tears,” said Allday.

She eventually got a prescription through their pediatrician and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) filled it. But there’s still no guarantee.

“So far, everything is working but she could text me back and say, ‘Hey, we just don’t have it,’” Allday said.

Parents are finding different ways to improvise. But CBS46 News asked a local pediatrician what you shouldn’t do.

“You don’t want to try to water down what you have because that can be extremely dangerous for babies to get watered down formula, so, you want to make it exactly as you’re supposed to,” said Dr. Samira Brown, a pediatrician at Piedmont Health.

Report: Georgia transfer forward Jillian Hollingshead commits to Tennessee Lady Vols

The Tennessee Lady Vols' roster for next season is now complete with the commitment of Jillian Hollingshead on Saturday according to a report by 247Sports.The former Georgia Bulldog entered the transfer portal in April after the ...

The Tennessee Lady Vols' roster for next season is now complete with the commitment of Jillian Hollingshead on Saturday according to a report by 247Sports.

The former Georgia Bulldog entered the transfer portal in April after the departure of coach Joni Taylor, who took the head coaching job at Texas A&M. Hollingshead averaged 5.1 points and 2.5 rebounds in 20 games her freshman season, but was held out of many due to illness and swelling in her knee.

Hollingshead scored 15 points in as many minutes in Georgia's NCAA first-round win over Dayton, the most points scored by a Georgia freshman in the NCAA Tournament since 2013. She played a season-high 27 minutes in Georgia's upset over No. 2 NC State, scoring nine points and grabbing four rebounds. Hollingshead also won back-to-back SEC Freshman of the Week awards.

The 6-foot-5 forward brings great size to back up rising senior Tamari Key. Hollingshead is a versatile post player, too, with the ability to shoot the three and handle the ball.

POINT GUARD CONNECTION:Why Jasmine Powell is a good fit for Lady Vols and why she connected right away with Kellie Harper

Tennessee recruited Hollingshead out of high school, but the Powder Springs, Ga., native elected to stay closer to home originally. She was the No. 5 forward and the No. 37 overall prospect by espnW in the 2021 class

Hollingshead fills Tennessee's last roster spot to complete Lady Vols coach Kellie Harper's largest roster of her tenure. UT will have 15 scholarship players plus walk-on Edie Darby. The last time Tennessee had 15 players on its roster was the 2004-05 season, which was Lady Vol great Candace Parker's freshman year.

But a full roster makes sense with how deep Harper plays into her reserves and the streak of injuries that took out four key players throughout the 2021-22 season.

Hollingshead is the fourth McDonald's All-American joining the roster. Jordan Horston was the Lady Vols' lone All-American the past three seasons. With the additions of Rickea Jackson out of Mississippi State and incoming freshman Justine Pissott, UT now has four former All-Americans.
