All quality high-security locks should employ a restricted keying system. These keys will hold an individual patent, and can only be copied or replaced by a certified locksmith that has been approved to do so. Ordinary keys can be easily duplicated by anyone skilled in doing so, because all of the forms are so similar, and lack proprietary patents. For added security, insist on having those keys registered as a signature only key. This means that an authorized signature would be required, and verified by the locksmith before duplicating.
Ordinary locks can easily be unlocked by any lock pick purchased on the Internet today, with just a little practice. With the pick resistant measures installed in today’s high-security locks, even the most experienced burglars will find it impossible to break them. Some models feature some obvious differences on the outside, only to hide more defenses inside the locks themselves.
With an ordinary lock, they can be easily breached using a standard drill by drilling a hole at the top of the lock and creating a shear between the inner cylinder, and its surrounding housing. With high-security locks, they are specially designed to resist such measures, and all the drilling in the world will not force these locks to be opened.
Dedicated burglars, when faced with a difficult lock, may resort to physical force to break through the door. High-security locks today come with reinforced striking plates, backed up by an interlocking deadbolt for just this kind of situation. Even if they cannot force the lock, there is no way that they will breach the door.
