Hello again HAVEN supporters, Can you believe it’s almost November? Time is flying by over here! As promised, we have a product update for you this week. We know you’re as busy as we are, so we’ll make this one short and sweet. You may remember our announcement a while back letting you know we switched engineering firms. Our new firm, Arciplex, is father and son owned and located right here in Nashville. They’ve helped us make a few changes that have improved the functionality of the HAVEN locks. First, we altered the locking mechanism to make it stronger and...

The October issue of Popular Mechanics has an entire section dedicated to the future of the American home. The section covers everything from cameras to guns to toilets and even, you guessed it, locks. HAVEN is featured in the article, “Is the House Key Doomed?” Get highlights from the article below. “Locks are as much about portraying security as they are about actually keeping people out. That might be why smart locks are taking off. They are mainly about convenience… But for the most part, they don’t necessarily improve the cylinder or the overall security of your door.” “One exception...

Before committing to buy, please use this test to determine if HAVEN will work on your door.
1. Your door opens inward.
Currently HAVEN will only work on doors that open inward, into the home. We do not currently support any doors that open to the exterior.
2. The Nickel Test
HAVEN is 0.8 inches high and should fit in the clearance path of most modern doors. A standard USD Nickel can be used to gauge the gap perfectly. Take a nickel, stand it on its end and make sure that it can pass under your door.
3. My floor will work with HAVEN.
HAVEN will need to sit firmly on a hard/clean surface: wood, vinyl, linoleum, ceramic tile, or concrete are all likely compatible.
Your door needs adjustment.
If you are into doing things yourself, check out our install guide for details on how to get your door ready for Haven.
Haven can work on a variety of different floor types. As long as Haven can be firmly secured to the subfloor, Haven will be fully functional. Ideally, the installation screws will be drilled at least one inch into the subfloor. Different floors may need different tools for installation.
If you are into doing things yourself, check out our install guide for options on how to get your floor ready for HAVEN.
Congratulations! You have passed the compatibility test!
Your door and/or floor may need some tweaking, but in most cases adjustments can be made to make HAVEN work for you. Please consult our install guide for more detailed information about installing HAVEN.
