This page is designed to teach, and give an overview, to help determine the design of lock that you need installed or repaired. If you are interested in matching existing locks at your home or business so they are keyed alike, we must determine this design of lock you want us to match. If you do not know, look at the edge of your door where the door latch or deadbolt is. The name of the lock manufacturer is usually stamped there. These are very helpful in determining what is needed for a particular job. You can also look at your existing key to determine what brand of lock you have installed. Usually there are numbers and or letters on your key. We may ask you to look at your key so we can determine what brand of lock you have that needs to be replaced or installed. Any time you need us, we are here ready to serve you, at Five Star Lock & Safe Security Center. Phone: SINGLE CYLINDER DEADBOLT: A single cylinder deadbolt with a 1" bolt is intended to reduce the potential for kicking in a door jamb or "jimmying" a lock from the outside. This lock has a thumb turn on the inside to operate the bolt, and afford simple egress. One thing to always remember, all locks, no matter how expensive, are ONLY as strong as the frame it locks to. High security strike hardware guarantees this strong bond when the deadbolt is in the locked position. See us here at Five Star Lock & Safe to achieve your home or business security goals. DOUBLE CYLINDER DEADBOLTS: A double cylinder with a 1" bolt is intended to reduce the potential for kicking in a door jamb or "jimmying" a lock from the outside, as well. This lock has a key on both sides of the lock. These double cylinder deadbolts are used when there is a window adjacent to the door.  These deadbolts prevent individuals on the outside from breaking the glass and opening the door. Care must be taken when double cylinder deadbolts are locked from the inside while you are in your residence. A key must be left accessible to open the door in case of fire or emergency. ENTRY FUNCTION LOCK: (Knob) An Entrance Function Lock-Set would be used on doors that you need to lock. A key must be used from the outside and usually a turn button locks, and unlocks, the door from the inside. LEVER SET: A Lever-set is an L shaped handle used for handicapped entrances and other areas where it is much easier to grasp the lever, than turn a knob.  Lever-sets also come in the Functions listed above. Most business facilities are converting all of their existing door knobs to levers to meet ADA requirements. ENTRANCE HANDLE SET with THUMB LATCH:  Entrance Handle Sets are usually used on the front door to a home. It combines decorative looks that are available in many finishes. A large handle with thumb latch and a separate deadbolt above the handle make up an Entrance Handle Set. PUSH BUTTON LOCK: A push button lock eliminates the use of a key. Combination locks have numbered push-buttons that, when used in the correct sequence, perform the same operation as a key by unlocking the door. Combinations can be changed at any time by the owner. MORTISE CYLINDERS: Mortise Cylinders are cylinders used in Mortise Lock-sets. They are threaded cylinders that screw into the mortise housing and are held in place by a set screw. RIM CYLINDER: A Rim Cylinder is a cylinder used in panic exit device hardware, or overhead doors. Unlike the mortise cylinder, this cylinder is secured in place by two screws and a mounting plate from the inside of the door. MORTISE LOCK SETS: Mortise Lock-sets are locks that are installed inside (mortise) of the door itself. The body, or case of the lock is encased inside of the door, and the lock cylinder, thumb turn knob, and handle are mounted on the outside. PANIC BAR EXIT DEVICE: Panic Exit Hardware Devices are usually used on fire exit doors or main exit doors that enables a large number of occupants to exit a door with minimal effort, keeping the safety in traffic flow of people high in a dangerous "panic" situation. A bar protrudes from the door and when the bar is pushed, the door opens and allows unfettered egress in a single motion. This "one motion" is what defines this particular device. FIRE EXIT ALARMS: This type of Exit device is used on fire doors, not main exit doors, and are usually used on back door entrances. An alarm on this device sounds when the door is opened, alerting managers and owners that someone has used the door without authorization. These devices control traffic flow through doors, and are designed to help control against merchandise loss, or shrinkage. These devices are most commonly used in fast food restaurants, and other rear door applications where exiting is to be monitored. ADAMS RITE LOCKS: Adams Rite Locks are used on aluminum frame, glass storefront doors, that have what is called a narrow stile (the area on the face of commercial aluminium doors, where it is mounted)  The Adams Rite Latch Lock incorporates a latch which protrudes into the door jamb. The door is also allowed to swing shut, and can be set in locked, or open mode. ADAMS RITE HOOK BOLT LOCK: The bolt hooks on to either another door, frame or internal device. ADAMS RITE SWING BOLT LOCK: This type of lock is different than the others in that a bolt that swings in and out of the door frame. This function also allows the lock to have a bolt that is stronger, and has a longer throw, hence more strength.
