I asked about this here before, I asked r/homedefense, I asked SecuritySnobs and I asked Abloy support, and everyone is wrong.
My question was, can I go on vacation and lock all of the thumturns on my Abloy Protec2 deadbolts with lockable thumbturn?
The answer was always NO, as you need to unlock one of them to leave the house, so one lock with have an unlocked thumbturn
This is wrong. Just open the door, lock the thumbturn in the locked position, take your key out and put it in the outside of the door, unlock so you can close, then you can just lock it from the outside again
Now all your deadbolts have inoperable thumbturns, so if you go on vacation and someone busts a window, they still can’t use the door
I just wanted to post here, as it seems no one knew the correct answer
