This lock is being used by many of the hotels in the world. It may be used with different types of keys. A key made of steel, plastic or even digital key will work on it really well. There are two kinds of dead bolt locks in the market. You can find a dead bolt lock that has only one cylinder and a dead bolt lock with two cylinders. Both of them make a good lock for doors but the type with two cylinders is a little bit complicated. The only thing that divides the two is that the first type may be opened with a key only from the outside. When you are inside the house, all you have to do is push the metal piece for the door to open. However, the double cylinder lock may be opened by a key both from the outside and the inside. It may not be sold in the market but the best door lock is a person who is really observant because door locks cannot scream for you when the thieves are entering your house. Remember to always double check the passageways to your house before sleeping at night or going out.
