Door Bolts & Thumb Turn Locks
A door bolt is an easy way of adding extra security to a door. A door bolt lock secures the door and prevents it from being opened, available in many styles and finishes together with different lock types to suit your situation. The traditional type of door security bolts are a slide bolt, available in straight or necked versions. A straight bolt is supplied with a staple keep and should be used where the door and frame are flush. A necked or cranked bolt is used in a situation where the door and frame are not flush. The sliding part of the bolt is angled at the end to clear a frame or architrave. A necked bolt is normally supplied with a flat plate receiver. You can purchase door bolts with narrow fitting plates or heavy duty door bolts that generally have a wider back plate and are stronger.
Thumb Turn Locks
Another way of locking a door is to fit a thumb turn door lock, also commonly referred to as a thumb turn latch. An internal thumb turn lock, like a deadbolt, can be used in conjunction with lever on rose door handles or door knobs. The thumb turn bolt fits directly below the handles or knobs and when the turn is rotated, it throws a deadbolt, locking the door. A thumb turn deadlock can be fitted to any door where privacy is required but the most common type is a bathroom lock thumb turn. A bathroom thumb turn provides privacy and can be used in conjunction with a bathroom deadbolt and lever on rose door handles. An alternative type of thumb turn lock security would be to fit a euro cylinder with a key one side and a thumb turn on the other together with a Euro lock. A thumb turn lock front door would allow the user to lock the door from the outside with a key and from the inside by the thumbturn. Remember that in many cases the thumb turn and the thumb turn door lock, whether it be a deadbolt, a rackbolt or a bathroom lock are purchased as separate items depending on your situation.
