A sliding door lock set is typically used for wood sliding doors and folding doors in bedrooms and bathrooms. These locks fit flush into the door and are sunken into the door itself. A thumb turns to control the locking mechanism and a coin release provides rapid entry to open the door during an emergency. Many sliding door locks come with a finger pull socket that is attached to the leading edge of the door. This gives the ability to pull the door out from a recess inside the wall.

Deadbolts

The bolt-on or deadbolt lock is triggered by a key or thumb turn. As it is not spring actuated and cannot be ‘jimmied’ open with a knife blade or credit card, it provides a high level of protection against unauthorised access. For this reason, it is recommended that doors made of solid wood, steel, or fibreglass be equipped with deadbolt locks.

For safety and security, keyed entry door knobs include a lock and key mechanism on both sides of the knob. Front doors, patio doors, garage doors that lead into your house, and other external doors may benefit from this installation. Some allow locking of the door from the inside by pressing a button. When you turn the knob on the inside, the button will release, unlocking the door. Other types of keyed entry door knobs use a mechanism on one side that twists, allowing the door to be locked or unlocked by turning the knob.

Door locker: Grades and rating

Front door security is best provided with deadbolts. Choose locks and deadbolts for doors that may be picked and bumped to guarantee protection for your property. Thieves cannot pick a good deadbolt lock, as it is equipped with mushroom pins or pick shields, thus preventing them from entering your property.

Consider the grade of the lock and the convenience of installation while looking for door locks and knobs. For most lock manufacturers, the performance of their locks is tested and graded. They evaluate the performance, strength, cycle, security, material assessment, and finish of a product to determine its suitability for use.

The lock’s grade tells you how many lock/unlock cycles it can handle before it has to be replaced. Rather than the security, it tells how long the door lock types can stand.

  • Grade 1: 8,00,000 cycles
  • Grade 2: 4,00,000 cycles
  • Grade 3: 2,00,000 cycles

When the door is closed, a certain door lockers will automatically lock. Shop for a lock that does not have this function, or read the manufacturer’s instructions to learn how to deactivate this feature if necessary, so that you do not get locked out by mistake.

How to pick the right door lock

Before you go out and buy a lock, you should first measure the backset, cross bore, and thickness of the door to be sure it will accommodate the lock.

  • Backset

This is the gap that must be maintained between the furthest border of the door and the keyhole’s centre. In most cases, the backset is measured at either 2 3/8 inches or 2 3/4 inches.

  • Cross bore, also known as edge bore

This is the narrow opening that runs along the outside edge of the door frame and has a diameter of around 1 inch on average.

A helpful hint is that the thickness of an exterior door is normally 1 3/4 inches, whereas the thickness of an interior door is 1 3/8 inches.

Lock and door handing

Handing indicates whether a door is constructed for right or left-handed consumers. To determine whether you need a right-handed or left-handed lock, examine the door from the outside. Note the location of the hinges; the direction the door swings does not matter.

  • A door is said to be right-handed if the hinges are located on the right side of the door. You will need a lock that is right-handed (RH).
  • A door is said to be left-handed if the hinges are located on the left side of the door. You will need a left-handed lock (LH).

The vast majority of door locks can be used effectively on either left or right-handed doors. These locks may be fitted on either side of the door, as indicated by their labels, which read ‘reversible handing’ and ‘universal handing’.

Advantages of a single-key system

Having a single key to open all of your outside doors is a popular choice. Packages with the same ‘key alike’ number should be sought when buying several locks. As an alternative option, you may get your hands on an inexpensive rekeying kit.

A self-rekeying capability may be available on certain models, which may be used with a supplied tool for fast and easy rekeying. Door locks are meant to be practical, but their aesthetics are also to be taken into account.
