Most standard doors do not have any issue working with Abloy deadbolts however to ensure your door will work with an Abloy deadbolt please see our Abloy Deadbolt Door Requirements page.  Most of our customers install their deadbolts themselves, however if you do want to hire someone we generally recommend a carpenter over a locksmith, they will generally be cheaper and do just as good if not better of a job.  In order to install the deadbolt you will have to remove any existing deadbolt on your door.  This can generally be done with a simple screwdriver removing the two screws on the inside of your door holding the inside and outside together.  The two screws on the side of your door holding the bolt in place, and finally the two screws on your door jamb keeping the strikebox/plate in place.  For a copy of the installation instructions (included with the lock also) see
