Different Types Of Door Locks

Passage Lock

  • An interior lock used inside the home in hallways or closets between rooms where privacy is not important.
  • Has two, non-locking knobs, one on each side of the door. Some models use levers instead of knobs.

Privacy Lock

  • Designed for privacy rather than for security.
  • An interior lock.
  • Has a locking button on the inside knob but no key device on the outside knob.
  • Can be either a knob or lever.
  • In an emergency, the lock can be opened from the outside by inserting a narrow object  through the small hole in the outside knob and either depressing or turning the locking mechanism inside, depending on the type of lock.

Dummy Knob

  • Used only for decoration or applications that do not need a latch.
  • Has no latching mechanism and does not turn.

Entry Lock

  • Two door knobs that can be locked from both the inside and the outside.
  • One type locks from the inside by turning or depressing a small button, while a key must unlock the outside knob.
  • Some models must be locked with a key on both the inside and outside.
  • In other models, only the inside knob can lock or unlock both sides of the set.
  • A medium security entrance door lock.

Deadbolt Lock

  • Called “dead” because there are no springs to operate the bolt. It is only operated manually with a key or a thumb turn from the inside.
  • The bolt locks the door to the frame and helps  prevent someone from prying it open.
  • The throw is the length the bolt is extended from the lock housing. The industry standard is a 1″ throw.
  • Locks are designed to fit specific size hole and backsets. Backset refers to the distance between the edge of the door and the center of the handle.
  • A single cylinder deadbolt is operated with a key from the outside and with a turn button on the inside. It is mostly used with solid metal or wood doors.
  • A double cylinder deadbolt is operated with a key on both the inside and outside. It is best used on a door with glass in or around them as the style prevents someone from breaking the glass, reaching in and unlocking the door.
  • Provides maximum security on a door.

Surface-Mounted Deadbolt Lock

  • Squarish in shape and mounted on the surface of the inside of the door.
  • The bolt may be turned with a key or a turn knob.
  • Instead of sliding into the door frame, the bolt slides into a surface-mounted strike.

Mortise Lock

  • Consists of a flat, rectangular box that fits into a recess in the door from its edge. Also includes two face plates that include the knobs and keyholes.
  • Available in right or left handed styles.
  • Has a pin tumbler locking mechanism in a cylinder.
  • Latch operates from either side except when the outside knob is locked.
  • Deadbolt operates by a turn of the inside knob.
  • A key from the outside operates both the deadbolt and the latchbolt.
  • Used in many types of doors, from heavy entrance doors to commercial buildings and residential doors.

Keyless Entry System Lock

  • For advanced home security and convenience.
  • Audio and visual indicators confirm that the lock is activated.
  • Some model will sound an alarm after the incorrect code has been entered more than three consecutive times.
  • Anti-theft rolling code feature ensures the same code is never used twice.
  • Some systems are compatible with some garage door openers so the homeowner only needs one remote.
