Dead Bolt Locks
Choose a superior protection
A dead bolt is a lock that, once fully engaged, cannot be "shimmed" or "jimmied" open. The bolt will retract only by operating the thumb-turn or key. A single-cylinder deadbolt is the most common type. It requires a key to operate the lock from the outside, but has a thumb-turn on the inside. A double-cylinder lock requires a key to operate the door from either side.
If you have a small glass panel or sidelight. A double-cylinder lock might improve security. In this case, a burglar might break the small pane of glass, especially if it is old, single-pane glass. A double-cylinder lock might deter him, since he still needs to open the door to get inside. However, fire safety must be part of your planning. Firefighters and life safety experts all know that when a fire or other emergency creates panic, people simply cannot find or operate keys. If you have alternate routes of escape, then a double-cylinder may be appropriate for this door.
