Bathroom Door Lock Security

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

Bathroom locks aren’t often thought about when home security is considered. The thinking about how their security is maintained is slightly different than that about front door or window locks – as the level of ‘security’ they provide, if the term is meant to signify reinforcing safety, is determined on the ability for other people to possibly enter a locked bathroom from outside if somebody inside the bathroom finds themselves needing emergency assistance. Here’s some of the security factors of bathroom locks as prepared by the expert locksmiths at Nonstop Locksmith.

Privacy

Bathroom locks are set in place due to a need for people to maintain privacy when they are inside the bathroom. They are not meant to provide the same impact resistant security as a front door high quality deadbolt. We recommend installation of high up or discreet locks in order to mitigate the risk of children accidentally locking them inside, while allowing adults to avoid the awkward situation of being barged in on on the toilet or in the shower.

Potential for Emergency Entry

Bathrooms are considered the most common room in the house that people have injuries. This is why it’s important that there’s emergency entry potential for bathroom locks. This can be a method of bypassing the locks to allow for outside entry – speak to your licensed locksmith about opportunities for these mechanisms to be installed on your locks or exterior doorknobs.

Lock Structure

You want to make sure that the lock used in your bathroom door isn’t unnecessarily complicated to the point of interfering with people’s ability to operate it. A needlessly complex bathroom lock can result in people accidentally getting locked inside the bathroom. By keeping the lock simple, you can not only save costs, but maximize your convenience, comfort, and safety.

Maintenance

It’s essential to maintain your bathroom locks to ensure that they are operating correctly. You want to ensure from a comfort standpoint that nobody can simply walk into the bathroom when it’s locked by turning the knob, but you also want to make sure that the door doesn’t jam, preventing people from coming in if they need to, or you from leaving if you need to.

Non-Stop sent Chuck to do my door. I had to change keys because my abusive boyfriend finally moved out. He was very friendly and very professional. He even arrived about 5 minutes before the time he was supposed to be! He told me that he has worked for this company since they opened. It took him only about 20 minutes to do everything. The price is reasonable: $65 flat rate and $35 per door. I work on a customer service-oriented job and I can definitely say that this company excels in that part. If you need a locksmith in the Logan Square, Avondale area, don’t waste your time with other companies. Just call Non-Stop! Thanks, Chuck!

Had a car lockout and needed an ignition key. Went to the Infiniti and Nissan dealership (Berman’s Infiniti) to “try” and get stuff sorted out but was met with bad service and tons of misinformation which left a bad impression. One person said one thing and the tech said another. I lost a lot of time and wasted effort trying to get stuff from the dealer’s service center. Then I got a referral to Non-Stop locksmith to get the job done. Quote was accurate had a great job done, courteous service and fast quality work. Dude made keys on the spot! My tech Robert went up and beyond my expectations to help me out of a jam.

My husband and I just bought our first place and needed the locks changed. Being that we needed it done quickly and after business hours (right after closing), I took a chance on going with the first place on Yelp. I couldn’t be happier!! CHRIS came out and was fantastic. He’s very knowledgeable on his craft and super friendly. He got the job done fast and the locks/keys work great. I’m actually about to call again, right now, to change another lock we didn’t know to change that night (for a storage room). Now, I’ve never needed locks changed, but I thought the prices to be reasonable. They charge by the item, not the hour, and gave me pricing right over the phone.
