Choosing the Right Mul-T-Lock for Your Home

When choosing the right locking system for your home, there are many things to take into account, and with so many different locks to choose from, the choices can be a little overwhelming. Pick and bump proof, Mul-T-Locks offer the highest level of lock protection for you, your family, your property and your belongings, and to help you choose the right one, here is a short guide:

Mechanical locks

A door with a mechanical lock is secured until a release mechanism, such as a key, is placed inside the locking mechanism, turning it to move the bolt out of the way, releasing the door. Choosing a multipoint system that is secured by several locking points, controlled simultaneously with one key, is a good choice for doors that are particularly vulnerable, such as sliding doors.

Digital locks

If you’re looking for a more modern, technological way to protect your home, you could choose a digital or biometric lock. More advanced than a standard locking system, digital locks enable you to control access to your home remotely and without the need for a key. With many options to customize and program them to enhance the protection of your home, you can keep your home secure while also allowing friends or relatives to gain access with your permission. Note that digital locking systems benefit from being paired with traditional locks such as the Mul-T-Lock.

Always consult with a licensed locksmith before changing your locking system

Different entryways, doors and windows may need different types of protection, and it can be beneficial to have a qualified locksmith carry out an assessment of your home to make sure you get the right locking systems, for the right places in your home. As well as giving you up-to-date security advice, they will be on hand to carry out any lock upgrades or replacements if necessary.

Do the locks meet the relevant safety standards?

Another advantage of working with a locksmith, is that your locking systems are guaranteed to meet the latest safety standards: deadbolts should have a Grade 1rating that meets UL 438, EN 12209, and if buying a smart lock, they should be patented.

Keep key control in mind

Fortunately, key copy control technology is in place to ensure that keys are not able to be duplicated without their owner’s knowledge, and if anyone tries to copy your Mul-T-Lock key, they will need your duplication card and key, and take it to a locksmith with the right key copying machine. The chances of this happening are incredibly slim, making the Mul-T-Lock system ultra-secure and one of the best ways to protect your home.

To discuss locking options such as the Mul-T-Lock, for your home and to give you the very best protection, seek advice and guidance from a licensed locksmith in your area.
