In keeping with the digital trend, combination door locks are all the rage. The only way in which it opens is when the lock combination is entered into the keypad locks. If bought without a manual key-override, these digital locks are unpickable considering that the keyless door has no keyhole to pick. Buyers can get these secure locks for doors online, or buy them from lock stores or home furniture and accessory stores.
When buying Yale locks or mechanical locks from lock shops, it's best to stick to reputed and large providers like Yale or Lockey. Yale doesn't really need any introduction, given its worldwide brand. Buyers can even design a door on their website, order it online and it gets fitted within a week. Lockey's locks are mechanical and keyless, which means that there is no keyhole and no wires or circuitry that can be bypassed. Lockey has distributors for its keyless entry lock products all over the world. In the UK, Lockey products can purchased via appointed distributors like Totalproductsales.com.
The Lock Shop
The Lock Shop has a 20-year record of selling security products, and its owner has been a member of the Master Locksmiths Association for over three decades. Buyers can get their door locksets in person, or order it from them via their website. They provide everything from code locks to window locks and safes.
Home and office stores
However, it's not always necessary to go to the source, since the same door locks can easily be bought at stores like Homebase or Staples. Homebase, for example, has this Yale push button door lock with more than 8000 codes that can be programmed for upto six digits. Staples has a hi-tech iTouchless bio-matic fingerprint door lock. It can recognise 78 key codes and 150 fingerprints. The best part is that it is a DIY lock, and comes with all the required tools and accessories included.
Online shopping provides a little more choice than what is available in a physical store. Buyers can find a huge selection of combination door locks from many different providers on shopping sites like Amazon or eBay. The Amazon listings can be found under 'Deadbolts' and 'Door Hardware' in the 'Home Improvement' category. The eBay listings under 'Home Improvement' include everything from a SCHLAGE King Cobra cylindrical keyless door lock KC5196 to a GSA01 keyless combination door knob lock.
