| Cylinder - The round portion of the lock that accepts the key and enables the locking mechanism
Deadbolt - A lock bolt that is moved by turning a knob or key
A single cylinder deadbolt is most often used on a front or back exterior door and is locked with a key from the outside of the home and a thumbturn on the inside. A double cylinder deadbolt is operated with a key from both the outside and inside of the home. Double cylinder deadbolts are recommended when a window is close to the door. The interior keyway prevents an intruder from breaking the glass and turning the thumbturn to open the door. A one-sided deadbolt has no exterior entry mechanism and a thumbturn on the interior of the door.
