Mortice Locks: These are commonly found on back doors. They can also be fitted on front doors together with a Yale lock. They are embedded into the door and are only opened with a key. Mortice locks can be described as a sash lock or a deadlock. A sash lock has a latch and a bolt and also a pair of handles. A deadbolt lock has only a keyhole and a bolt. They are available with several lever variations: a two, three, five or seven lever mechanism. Mortice locks with high number of levers are more difficult to pick and therefore, are more secure than those with less number of levers.
All doors, especially on commercial property should be upgraded with 5-lever locks on the least to ensure maximum security. A key is used to activate the deadlock. One major advantage of mortice locks is that burglars cannot break an adjacent window to reach and unlock the door from inside. In case they break in through a window, they can’t escape through the door as long as keys are not left on the door.

Yale locks: These are also called Cylinder Rim locks and are found on most internal door locks and some front doors. Front doors which automatically lock when shut, require a key to be opened from outside but open without a key from inside have a Yale lock. A connecting cylinder is fitted into the door and has a keyhole on the outside. In case you lose your door keys, Los Angeles Locksmith Pros will replace cylinders or upgrade to a lock of higher quality for more security.
The advantage of using Yale locks is that you are protected from unauthorized key duplication.
