How Door Locks Influence Your Home Insurance Policy

How Door Locks Influence Your Home Insurance Policy

Not many people realise how impactful door locks are on your home insurance policy. 

Home insurance providers tend to ask about the locks in your house, including what type of door lock you have, if they are an approved type and when they were installed. 

We stock a wide range of home insurance approved locks here at LockShop Direct, to get your home insurance application approved - and more importantly, keep you safe. 

Here are a few of our favourites. 

Mortice locks and latches 

Our mortice door locks are a popular choice amongst our customers. They’re simple yet stylish and available in a variety of sizes to fit your door. 

The metal snib secures neatly into the door frame, so there are no obtrusive fittings that disturb the look and feel of your home. Our range of mortice door locks and latches are available with a deadlock or key opening, depending on your preferences. 

We offer free UK delivery on all orders over £60 and always aim to get our products out to you as soon as possible, so you won’t be without a lock for too long. 


Night latches

A latch is a type of lock that’s mounted on the door, rather than being part of the frame. 

They lock as soon as the door closes and are unlocked using a key from the outside and by sliding the snib and turning the key/handle from the inside. 

LockShop Direct customers are always happy with their purchases and this doesn’t stop at our selection of night latches. They’re a super convenient and affordable option, and - like all of our door locks - are available in a range of colours and finishes. 

If you need a helping hand getting the correct measurements for your door lock, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today!

Our cylinder locks arefrom some of the most popular brands in the UK, including YALE, Alpro and Cisa. 

Cylinder door locks are guaranteed to deter thieves and any potential criminal activity.
