How to choose
the right lock?
Choosing which type of lock to use on your door depends on a number of factors.
Here are some questions you can go through to help get you started:
- Is this a new installation?
- Are you replacing an existing lock?
- What type of door or entry is it that needs to be secured?
- Do you have enhanced concerns about security?
- Do you want to upgrade or improve the appearance/style?
- Who will be using the lock? Will multiple keys be needed?
These questions and more can help you and your locksmith work together to find the right lock for the task at hand. As a top-rated locksmith provider, we have the experience and expertise to help you find the perfect solution.
Common types of locks for lock installation
Deadbolt: This type of lock, generally used on exterior-facing doors, represents one of the most popular employed locks in both residential and commercial applications.
The two most common versions are the single and double cylinder designs. Deadbolts provide enhanced security and durability, but with one major drawback: they always require a key to open.
Knob Lock: These locks are most common on interior doors of your home, and as the name suggests, are integrated into the doorknob itself.
Although they adequately secure rooms inside of your home, they are much less secure given that breaking off the doorknob would allow entry. As such they are not recommended for exterior use.
Lever Lock: Also known as lever handle locks, are easy to use and provide a mid-level of security. These are commonly employed on interior doors of commercial establishments.
Electronic/Smart Lock: Available in a wide variety of styles, designs, and types, smart locks are quickly gaining popularity for their ease of use, convenience, security, added features and more.
