deadbolt lock

What type of lock do locksmiths use for their homes and businesses?

This type of lock is built to withstand the demands of the toughest commercial uses, but it is also suitable for residential use. This is the type of lock that professional locksmiths use for their own homes.  

A dead bolt or dead lock, is a locking mechanism distinct from a spring bolt lock because a deadbolt cannot be moved to the open position except by rotating the lock cylinder. A deadbolt can make a door more resistant to entry without the correct key.

A deadbolt or dead lock can provide more security than any other type of lock. 

  • You need a key to open this type of lock.  An intruder would have a hard to opening this lock without the key.

  • It would take severe force to cause the bolt inside the lock to move without the key, so much force that it is almost impossible by man alone.  It would be easier to kick the door in then to push back the bolt.

  • The door needs to be in the fully closed position for the bolt to line up with the strike plate.  This will alleviate any thought as to , "did I lock the door behind me?"

  •  Since this lock needs a key to operate, this design is suitable for glass doors or doors near windows.  An intruder can't open a window a turn the knob.  They would need a key.   

  • If used on a glass panel door, you might want to consider a double sided deadbolt, or  in other words, a key would be needed to open both sides of the lock in case glass was broken.
