Front Door Locks

Front Door Locks

Locks for front doors (and back doors for that matter) come in a range of different shapes and sizes - so to speak.  We stock all the common types of front door locks, as well as some less popular. Among the most popular are:-

Sashlocks - these offer a latch and deadbolt, so handles are required to open the door, and you can optionally lock the door via key.

Deadlocks - these offer no latch or handle facility, and are purely designed to lock or unlock a door via key.

Rimlocks - these are surface-mounted door locks such as the common "Yale Lock" and older style surface-mounted sash and dead locks for use with knobsets.

Bear in mind that many insurance companies will have a requirement for you to have British Standard door locks on your front door, and we have a range of locks that meet these requirements. To find out more about what the standards are and what they mean, have a look at our helpful article here: https://www.locksonline.co.uk/community/bs3621-bs8621-bs10621-what-does-this-mean-locksonline-exclusive.html
