What is a Deadbolt Lock?
Commonly also referred to as a Dead Lock, Deadbolt Locks are considered to be one of the more secure types of locks that can be installed on a door. This is because the mechanism of a deadbolt lock is different from what can be found in a typical spring based lock.
Unlike most other locks, a deadbolt’s locking mechanism cannot be easily tricked open. Without the right key, a person will have a hard time unlocking the cylinders of a deadbolt’s opening mechanism. This is unlike the opening mechanism of a spring based lock which operates by keeping its locking bolt engaged with the help of a spring. Due to the fact that deadbolt locks don’t make use of springs in the locking mechanism, it is tougher than most other locks to pick, break, or otherwise force open. This is why deadbolt locks usually come highly recommended for securing entry doors in London.
We often advise our clients who have other types of locks in place on their doors to boost the security they already have in place by having a deadbolt professionally installed on their door. The combination of other locks with a deadbolt guarantees better security and a harder time for anyone who attempts a break-in.
To ensure that our clients get the best possible security from having a deadbolt lock installed, we usually offer them deadbolts manufactured by leading brands in the security industry. Deadbolt brands that are tested and trusted that we typically offer our clients include Yale, Schlage, ASSA, Kwikset, Code-a-key, LockState, Master Lock, and others.
How does the mechanism of a Deadbolt Lock function?
A deadbolt’s opening/locking mechanism is typically controlled by using a knob or a key to operate it. The deadbolt lock doesn’t make use of any springs to open or lock and this gives it a much sturdier design than locks that do. The lack of a spring makes it very difficult to jimmy or force open a door that’s fastened with a deadbolt. This is why the deadbolt is such a common security feature in both residential and commercial buildings all across the UK.
But as strong as a deadbolt is, its effectiveness in securing a door might be undermined by poor installation. To get the best results from having a deadbolt installed, it’s advisable one has a professional locksmith such as our experts at TopLocksmiths help put it in place. By going about an installation in this manner, you are guaranteed of having a high quality deadbolt installed on your home or business’ door by a professional who knows what he/she is doing.

Types of available Deadbolt Locks
Deadbolts are not limited to a single type and each design offers a different level of security as well as its own unique advantages. The higher the quality of a deadbolt, the more security you can expect from it. The most commonly available deadbolt locks are the Single Cylinder variety, the One Sided Cylinder Deadbolt (with exterior rim), One Sided Deadbolt (without exterior rim), and the Double Cylinder Deadbolt.
Single cylinder deadbolts are operated by a twist knob on one end and make use of a key on the other end. The double cylinder deadbolt on the other hand can accept a key from either side of the door and has no twist knob. When you call on us at TopLocksmiths to install a deadbolt on your London home or business, the level of security you want is what will determine the deadbolt type we will put in place on your door.
