Door Lock Types
Choosing the right door lock type to install is crucial to maintain your home safe. While many homeowners, nowadays, do their research and try to install new locks themselves, it’s always best to leave the task to a professional. With ample years of experience helping homeowners secure their properties, our locksmiths have all the equipment and expertise necessary to determine the right type of lock for each door.
The following include some common types of door locks.
Deadbolt locks are perhaps the most popular choice for exterior doors, undoubtedly due to their superior durability and resistance against brute force. Their name comes from the fact that they remain firmly shut when engaged. Deadbolts extend much further back into the strike, making them much more resistant to forced entry attempts.
Unlike spring-loaded locks, deadbolts don’t extend and retract automatically with pressure. Thus you won’t be able to lock the door without inserting and turning the key. For exterior doors, we recommend homeowners get a deadbolt lock that is Grade 1 approved, as these are some of the strongest locks available on the market.
Latch bolts are spring-loaded and beveled, meaning the bolt is constantly extended unless pushed back by the door handle mechanism or an external force. These are the kinds of door locks that you can swing shut at any time. These kinds of locks are best suited for interior spaces, such as bedrooms and home offices.
Door Lock FAQs
Below are a few frequently asked questions we get regarding door locks. Contact us today for additional information and to schedule residential locksmith services.
Will Installing A New Lock Damage My Door?
Not at all! When installed by one of our professional locksmiths, your new lock could be installed in as little as 30 minutes, without any damage or unnecessary changes to your door. We typically only need to drill a few necessary holes to fit the new lock.
How Do I Know Which Lock Type To Install On My Door?
One of our professional locksmiths can help you decide depending on the door’s location, intended security level, and your budget. In general, we recommend homeowners use ANSI (American National Standards Institute) Grade 1 Locks on all exterior doors.
How Long Will The New Lock Installation Take?
Installation time will vary depending on the door’s material (which you should communicate to your locksmith in advance), whether there are any drill holes already on the door, and the type of door lock. In most cases, installation should take no longer than 30 minutes.
