SCHLAGE LOCK CO. DONATES LOCK AND KEYS FOR WASHINGTON D.C./BALTIMORE 'RYLAND DREAM HOME' GIVEAWAY

 SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was announced today by Schlage Lock Co.:
 One door; one lock. Ninety-seven keys; only one match.
 That's what faces 97 finalists in a Washington D.C./Baltimore-area promotion on Aug. 28. The winner takes all -- a new house on the home site of his or her choice from among 31 Ryland Homes' communities in the Washington D.C./Baltimore area.
 The "Ryland Dream Home" giveaway is a promotion sponsored by Mid- Atlantic Coca Cola Bottlers, Giant Food Stores, Ryland Homes and Washington, D.C., radio WASH FM 97.1. Schlage Lock Company, "The Doberman of Locks," will provide the front door lock and the keys used in the promotion. The "Ryland Dream Home," like all Ryland Homes, will be fitted throughout with Schlage locks.
 On Aug. 17, 97 names were selected from the estimated 100,000-plus entered in the promotion. On Aug. 28, the 97 finalists will be invited to a site in Ryland Homes' Seneca Park community in Germantown, Md. A security guard, escorted by two Doberman dogs, will pull a sack of Schlage keys -- 96 to be exact -- from an armored truck. He will pull another Schlage key out of his pocket, show the crowd it opens the door to the house, then drop it in the bag with the other keys. The guard will then announce that only the one key opens the door. Each finalist will pick a key and try the door -- winner take all.
 Schlage Lock Co., "The Doberman of Locks," was founded by Walter Schlage and Charles Kendrick in 1925. The San Francisco-based company became part of worldwide Ingersoll-Rand (NYSE: IR) in 1974.
