   The main thing to remember is that most interior doors are called "hollow core".  This means that they are not solid wood, and this might pose a problem with the strength of the deadbolt.   Always check before you start drilling and cutting and refer to any manufacturer’s instructions.

 

*Please note that  most building codes do not permit double cylinder deadbolt installation in bedroom (egress) areas and some even prohibit any kind of dead bolt installation in these above mentioned areas.  Check out the website for the International Code Council for more details:
