Door Lock Replacement

A door lock replacement is the process of replacing the existing hardware on a door with another lock. A buyer may want to replace their locks for any number of reasons, such as personal preference or because they’ve lost their old key. There are many different types of locks that can be used to replace an existing door lock.

Different door locksets, such as mortise, rim, and cylinder locksets all serve different purposes and fit different types of doors. Mortise locksets are generally the most secure type of door lock because they use a cylindrical bolt to fit tightly in the hole drilled in the doorjamb. Rim locksets use a flat surface to fit into the groove on either side of the door without drilling additional holes in it (which is quicker and easier). Cylinder locksets work differently and requires drilling holes in each side of the door.

Deadbolt Lock

The deadbolt lock is one of the most basic types of locks. It is used in many homes and businesses across the world. The deadbolt is typically installed near the ground level, on the door’s side that is most often used. The lock has a very simple mechanism that consists of three major parts:

– The body (which accommodates the keyhole)

– A bolt (which moves horizontally to lock or unlock)

– A cylinder (which rotates to allow access)

The deadbolt locks are considered as effective as they are not vulnerable to unauthorized entry through windows, doors, or other external surfaces.

 

Cylinder Lock

A cylinder lock is a lock that uses a key-operated, tapered pin cylinder in which the pins are either spring loaded or directly connected to a cam device. A cylinder lock is a type of lock typically used on doors and drawers. It has a cylindrical metal rod (usually brass) with a series of holes around it. A metal key is inserted into the keyhole and rotated to allow the rod to pass through one of the holes. When the correct hole is found, the rod will fall down, making an audible click noise and rotating some other components in such a way that allows access.

 

Mortise Lock

Mortise locks are one of the most popular locks in security systems, and they can be found in almost all homes and businesses. They are very secure because it is nearly impossible for burglars to break into them. Mortise locks come with a locking mechanism that slides up and down, which secures the lock to the door frame. The lock can be unlocked by turning a key or by inserting a special type of key called a skeleton key. Many people use mortise locks for their homes because it is difficult for burglars to break into them.

 

Magnetic Door Lock

A magnetic door lock is a device that uses magnets to secure a door. The two most common types of magnetic locks are the dead bolt and the knob lock. A dead bolt consists of a metal bar that slides into a slot in the door frame and has a perpendicular screw holding it in place. The knob type is generally used on interior doors and uses a round knob on the exterior of the door to turn on the rotating plug on the inside, which will then retract back into its casing. It normally use by automatic swing and sliding doors for glass, single, and double doors.

 

Digital Door Lock

Digital door locks offer many different benefits. Firstly, they offer enhanced security as they can be programmed with unique pass codes and can support biometric authentication for increased security. Secondly, they are more convenient as they do not require keys and can be opened with a unique code that is set by the user. The user has full control over who has access to their home without having to go through the troubles of changing their locks You still need to be physically there to open the door with a digital lock or keyboard lock. Instead, an intelligent lock is a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth integrated digital lock door, so you can remotely manage and access the lock through your smartphone.

 

Sliding Door Lock

Sliding door locks are a type of lock that attaches to the sliding door frame and slides into a hole in the floor or wall. They add an extra layer of security for your sliding glass door to keep burglars from getting in. There are two types of sliding lock mechanisms: one with a key and knob, and one with a push-button. The keyed sliding locks have a lever on the inside of the home to release, while push-button locks have a small hole on the exterior side to push in order to release. A sliding door lock is usually either keyed with a deadbolt, keyed with a knob (handle), or operated by using a push/pull mechanism that can be activated by pushing down on the handle and then pulling it up and away from the other side.

 

Glass Door Lock

he glass door lock is the key to preventing intruders from entering your home. The lock can be installed on any type of sliding glass door without drilling holes or making any major modifications. Locksmiths and security experts recommend placing this lock on doors that lead out to balconies, patios, and decks to prevent injury and fire hazards. It’s also perfect for people who live alone or with small children because it prevents strangers from walking into your home without permission.

 

Latch lock

Latch locks are typically used in places where people are expected to leave doors open. They are much more secure than the old-fashioned bar lock, and they can also be much more stylish. Latch locks can be found in many different styles, colors, and materials. This is because they are often used in places where security is not the only concern. They need to look good too! The latch lock system uses a lever on the inside of the door to push up against a bar on the outside of the doorframe or door jamb, which then opens or unlocks that side of the door. Latch locks are a type of lock that is often used to secure sliding doors, cupboard doors, and windows.
