What is the Importance of a Deadbolt Lock? Many people wonder if they need one on their door or whether or not it is actually more secure than a single latch lock.
The reason why U.S. Standard doors come prepped with a deadbolt above the single latch is because it does provide extra security. A deadbolt is stronger and more secure than a single latch. It is different than a single latch because of how it engages that actual door. The deadbolt extends into the door farther than a single latch and is a lot harder to gain unapproved access through. Locksmiths would tell you this.
