Why Choose a Deadlock?
Deadlocks are essentially a bolt, bolts or metallic latch, often with the addition of a small device that locks it in place. They are considered one of the most durable and secure locks which are easily installed and used.
A deadlock is not as susceptible to being picked as a regular doorknob lock. They are also more resistant to physical attacks due to their solid construction.
As such they are an excellent choice for exterior doors, especially front doors for residential properties. Deadlocks are available in two types: single-cylinder and double-cylinder.
The single-cylinder deadlock has one keyhole, while the double-cylinder deadlocks have two. All deadlocks use a key to unlock them from the outside.
From the inside, you have a thumb-turn knob that can be used to open them. Or, as in the case of double-cylinder types, they can be locked and unlocked with a key from both sides.
