SINGLE CYLINDER DEADBOLT LOCK
This type of deadbolt lock, from its name “Single Cylinder,” is a type of lock that can be opened with a key on one side, while the other side does not and only uses a thumb piece in order to operate it. These types of deadbolt locks are usually positioned with the one requiring the key on the outside, and the thumb piece on the inside, in order to ensure maximum security and prevent random intruders from coming in your home. However, these types of locks are not advisable to be used in glass doors, as burglars and hooligans have the capacity to break the glass and turn the thumb with their hands, gaining access to all of your valuables.
DOUBLE CYLINDER DEADBOLT LOCK
From its name implying “Double Cylinder,” this is the type of lock where a key is required at both sides in order for the lock to be operated. Due to its added security, it is more recommended in glass doors compared to Single Cylinder Deadbolt Locks. In times of emergency, however, this type of locks might pose as a hindrance from accessing the other side of the door, especially when people are in a state of panic.
KEYLESS CYLINDER DEADBOLT LOCK
Molding more closely with technological advancement, keyless cylinder deadbolt locks don’t require keys or knobs in order to operate, but biometric scans or passcodes are used instead. With this type of deadbolt lock, anyone who doesn’t know the passcode or does not have verified biometrics in order to access the door will not be able to get in your humble abode.
Why Install Deadbolt Locks?
It isn’t a new scene in the news for burglars, thieves, or hooligans to bypass normal spring type locks due to their vulnerable mechanism, or even go so far as to destroy the locks completely with crowbars and other weapons. The strong mechanisms of the deadbolt locks, however, are almost impossible to be forced open and bypassed. This destroys the flow of the intruder planning to enter your home, therefore, increasing the chances of them getting caught red-handed.
