There are many different types of locks, which provide varying levels of security. Certain types of locks tend to be associated with different settings as well. Watch this video for an overview of the different types of locks.
Common to residential properties such as apartments and homes is the doorknob lock. While this type of lock is very common, it can be risky if there is any space between your door and the doorway. That’s why these locks are best supplemented with deadbolts. A deadbolt is made of a solid bolt and is very secure. It cannot be pushed in from the outside, only turned using the lever on the inside of the door. A padlock is also a secure way to lock up personal belongings.
