Here we take a look at the types of locks available and some of their applications. Mortice sashlock - for timber doors. This type of lock is a mortice lock combined with a handle that operates the latch mechanism. This allows you to open and close the door without the need for a key and to lock it with a key as you leave the house. A three lever sashlock provides a mid-level of security whereas the five lever version provides a higher level. Five lever locks are usually used on back doors which require high levels of protection. Three lever sashlocks are typically installed on internal doors which need to be lockable.
Make sure you remove the key from the lock once you have locked the door. Any letterbox should be fitted at a distance of at least 400mm from the deadlock. Nightlatch - for timber doors. A nightlatch secures front doors and other external doors. It is mounted at around shoulder height and has a spring loaded latch which allows you to simply shut the door behind you to lock it. Nightlatches are very useful but they should always be used in conjunction with a deadlock. Many people use their nightlatch during the day and their deadlock and nightlatch at night.
