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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
