What Are Deadbolts?
A deadbolt lock is a special type of lock using heavy gaged metal reinforced to be strong and sturdy. Several different types of deadbolts are available:
- Single Cylinder Deadbolt: A single cylinder deadbolt is the most commonly used type of deadbolt lock. This particular lock has a key cylinder on one side, with the thumb turn on the other side. They can be opened on the inside without a key, which is a plus if you are trying to leave in a hurry.
- Double Cylinder Deadbolt: The double cylinder deadbolt is another choice of lock available. This model features key cylinders on each side. They do not have a thumb turn and a key is required to open the lock whether you are inside or out.
- Keyless Entry Deadbolt: This is one of the newest types of deadbolts available, designed for the sophisticated individual who seeks the latest in technology. Keyless entry deadbolts are those that can be accessed without the use of a key while still providing the strong reinforcement that you need.

- Heavy steel material is resistant to sawing or breaking
- Pick-proof by even the most accomplished criminals
