A deadbolt is a locking mechanism that cannot be opened unless the lock cylinder is rotated. This lock is more capable as a security resource than the typical spring bolt. The reason for this is the spring bolt uses a spring that holds the bolt in place, and can be opened by applying force, a deadbolt lock is more resistant to forced entry.

Types of deadbolt locks include:
- Single Cylinder: The most common type of deadbolt. With this lock there is an exterior cylinder entry point that is key-operated. This type of deadbolt meets the security needs of most homeowners.
- Double Cylinder: Uses a key on both the entrance and the exit point. A key is always required. This type of lock is most commonly seen in doors that have glass windows.
- Keyless Entry Deadbolt: In a keyless entry deadbolt lock, the lock can be opened without the use of a key. However, many of these locks have an option to have a manual override of the lock with a key. Most keyless entry deadbolt locks are locked or unlocked by entering a code on a numeric keypad. However, there are some deadbolt locks that can be operated by use of a remote device. Sometimes, these devices also have an audio or visual signal that will allow you to know in advance if your door is still locked.
