If your lock is more complicated – the price you will pay for a set of keys for it will be higher.
Locks come in all types and sizes
You can get padlocks, deadbolts, cam locks, europrofile cylinders, jimmy proof deadbolts, key in knob cylinder locks and many more different types.
Which lock you use depends on how ‘key’ (pardon the pun) – your need for security is.

Deadlocks – for those who aren’t familiar with them – can only be opened from the outside or inside of a home – with a key!
Thieves tend to bypass homes with deadlocks because once they get in they can’t get out without the key – which is not at all easy to duplicate unless you have the master with you.
Insurance companies won’t insure homes without deadlocks on them
If you own your home or you rent it, you’ll need deadlocks in order to get home and contents insurance.
Home and contents insurance means any goods you have in your home- including gold or jewellery – is safe from the prying eyes (and hands) of thieves.
The cost of installing deadlocks depends on how many doors and windows there are in your home. A locksmith experts will want to inspect your home before they will quote you on fitting it with deadlocks.
