What’s Your Door Lock-Type?

Door locks are important. The way they look to us, enhances the beauty of our home. Which is the opposite of what you want it to look like for the thief trying to break-in. The door lock must look sturdy and unbreakable.

And yet, there are a variety of door locks on the market. MrQuickPick, can help you explore the different options available and when to use them. Or you can just read below:

1. Knob Locks – most common locks available. You can find them on your bedroom doors and hall closets, but usually not, on external doors.

2. Deadbolt Locks – are mostly used on external doors because they have a stronger protection against force entry. They come in three primary types: single, double, and vertical.

3. Mortise Locks – are mostly used on external doors. Ask MrQuickPick which is better for you dwelling verses a deadbolt lock.

4. Padlocks – are portable and not permanently attached to anything. They come either keyed or combination. You will see them hanging from lockers and gates.
