A Look at the Different Types of Locks

Most homes and offices are secured by a wide variety of locks. From the front entry door to safes and filing cabinets inside, there are many locks that stand between burglars and your valuables. Different types of locks are suited to different applications, and you can read on to learn a bit more about each type.

Padlocks, which are most often found on gym lockers, can also be used to secure garage doors or tool shed doors on your property. All exterior doors should be equipped with deadbolts, which secure them to the frame and resist all but the most extreme force and the most skilled picking. Knob locks are perfectly adequate for interior doors, and as secondary locks on outer doors, but you should not rely on them to provide complete security. For added security, you can install jimmy-proof deadbolts or chains.
