Locks & Keys for the Type of Door and Window

The type of door or window you have determines the door lock. There is no one-fit lock for every purpose. Some locks are built for specific doors and windows. Residential homeowners have a wide range of door locks to choose from. They include deadbolts, handlesets, door levers and smart locks. They can be used for interior or exterior purpose.

For instance, installing a deadbolt lock on a glass door requires a double cylinder deadbolt. A door lever is ideal for interior doors because they are not as robust as deadbolts. The wrong lock makes it easy for criminals to break into your property.

Ease of Control & Access

Before installing a new system for your locks and keys, you need to know the required maintenance of the lock. Most systems are easy to maintain and control. Smart Lock providers can allow you to track key holders to ensure you have all of them on your phone and can disable access when you want to.

Security of the Lock and Key System

Most Yale night latch locks are 5 or 6 pin. Locks with a greater number of cylinder pins are generally more secure and harder to pick, drill or bump. Anti-drill cylinders provide a higher level of drill protection. Anti-bump cylinders are configured to prevent bumping (gaining entry by forcing the lock mechanism). Anti-pick cylinders includes special lock pins, mushroom pins, magnetic pins and spiral pins to prevent lock picking.
