One good purpose for utilizing lever locks for protected deposit doors is the necessity for a guard key. Both the guard key and renter’s key must be present when a deposit box is to be opened. First, the guard key is inserted and turned. Second, the renter’s key is inserted and turned. If the right guard and renter’s keys have been inserted, the renter’s key can retract the bolt, allowing the door to be opened. In circumstances where the renter’s key is lacking, safe deposit lock keyways can often be either drilled out or pulled using special safe deposit lock nose puller tools. Once the keyway is eliminated, the levers are often free to drop out of the locking area and the bolt can easily be withdrawn. Safe deposit locks are usually destroyed in this course of, but the secure deposit doorways are left intact.
