Here are some important factors to consider when selecting a door lock for your home:

Security Level: The primary purpose of a door lock is to provide security. When selecting a door lock, consider the level of security you need. For example, a deadbolt lock offers more security than a simple latch lock.

Type of Lock: There are several types of locks to choose from, including latch locks, deadbolt locks, privacy locks, roller locks, and smart locks. Latch locks are the most common, least expensive and most secure. The roller lock (pictured below) is of the same security, however it offers a different function with typically a pull handle installed instead of a lever handle. A smart lock offers the latest in security technology and allow you to control your lock remotely.

Quality: Choose a high-quality lock that is made of durable materials and is built to last. A cheap lock may be easier to break or pick, making your home vulnerable to break-ins.

Ease of Use: Choose a lock that is easy to use, especially if you have children or elderly family members living with you. Consider the level of complexity required to operate the lock and whether it is suitable for your needs.

Installation: Some locks are easier to install than others. Consider hiring a professional to install your lock to ensure it is installed correctly and functions properly. There are a lot of false narratives around mortice locks in regard to installation. If your installer has the right equipment, which any qualified tradesperson should, they will be able to install our mortice locks quite quickly. We have installation instructions and drill templates for all locks.

Cost: The cost of a lock can vary widely depending on the type, quality, and brand. Consider your budget when selecting a lock, but also remember that investing in a high-quality lock is a worthwhile investment in the safety and security of your home.

Compatibility: Consider the compatibility of the lock with your door. Make sure the lock is the right size and type for your door to ensure proper installation and function. If your door doesn't allow for a 60mm backset you may require a narrow backset like the one pictured here, which is a 35mm.

In conclusion, selecting a door lock for your home is an essential part of maintaining security and safety. Consider the security level, type of lock, quality, ease of use, installation, cost, and compatibility when selecting a lock for your home. By choosing the right lock, you can have peace of mind knowing that your home is protected.
