Here are some of the most commonly used types of locks that you may come across.
Deadbolts are very commonly used. They can be used around the home and even in businesses. They provide very good security against burglary. Since they are placed on one side of a door, only the person who is on that side of the door will be able to open the lock. If you happen to be on the other side of the door, you will not be able to get in unless someone opens that latch for you. In the event that the latch is closed and you are on the other side of the door, you will need a great deal of help to get inside.
Padlocks are fairly simple to use. They come with a key that is inserted in the lock for opening. In some cases, the key also has to be used to close the lock. There are many sizes and brands of padlocks and they can be used on many different types of property. Nowadays, there are even padlocks that require a combination code rather than a key for you to gain access.
- Knob locks
Knob locks are placed on doors. They are not generally considered sufficient for doors that provide a main point of entrance or exit although they provide a fair amount of security. In many instances, these locks can be broken very easily so it is advised that some other form of security is used to supplement these locks. A deadbolt may be one option, but there are plenty of other options that can enhance the safety that this type of lock provides.
- Lever handle locks
This type of lock is most frequently used in a commercial setting. They are typically used for inner doors since they do not provide adequate security for doors that provide a major point of entrance or exit. If they are used for these doors, they should be supplemented with another lock. Lever Handle locks are very easy to operate, all you need to do is apply pressure to the handle in a downwards motion while pushing or pulling on the door.
- Wall mounted locks
As is said in the name, these locks are placed on walls. They are usually installed during the construction of the building as this is the time when they are easy to be installed. These types of locks provide a great deal of security and they may be seen on safes and other products that have a higher level of security detail.
- Furniture locks
Locks are not only for doors. There are many furniture that may require the presence of a lock. In a commercial setting, you may place locks on file cabinets, desk drawers and many other pieces of furniture. The furniture lock is specially designed for furniture. It is not a very high level of security, but it does provide adequate security for items that should not just be laying around in plain sight.
- Other locks

Whether you need a simple padlock or a more complex lock product, let an expert tell you what will work best.
