Article Summary: 

The article discusses the importance of high-security locks in protecting homes and businesses from break-ins, forced entries, and unauthorized key duplication. It compares two popular brands in the industry, Medeco and Mul-T-lock. Medeco locks are widely used in the US High Security market, while Mul-T-lock has a global presence. Both brands use the pin-tumbler design, making them easy for local locksmiths to install. The Medeco Maxum deadbolt is considered the highest-rated residential lock deadbolt for brute force break-ins, while Mul-T-lock provides stricter key duplication controls. However, it's important to note that neither brand is impenetrable, and Medeco keys are somewhat fragile compared to Mul-T-lock keys. The article concludes that for overall security, Mul-T-lock is the preferred choice.
