'Click' Or 'Turn' Door Locks

Sun Mar 03, 2002 11:50 am

I request your opinion on these light door locks. I know there are other types: the 'push and turn' and the 'tab' locks, but the 'click' and the 'turn' are the most popular by far, in my experience. Obviously you won't use these locks for a front door of your home as a deadbolt is more appropriate and provides more security.

These are most often used on bedroom doors, bathroom doors and the like. You can usually tell because these are the locks you set when playing with yourself.

What do you see as the advantages and disadvantages of these two types?

Click:
Advantages:

-you can lock with only one finger
-when you open the door, the lock opens automatically (by magic, I guess)
-makes that cool clicking sound

Disadvantages:
-too loud in personal / intimate situations
-tendency to 'stick'
-not really 'classy'
-the popping button could cause injury if the spring is too strong

Turn:

Advantages:
-allows you to stealthly set the lock
-no real injury risk, unless your skin gets caught underneath the turning part of the lock

Disadvantages:
-much too much effort required to lock and open
-probably 90% of such locks are this type - hardly new and exciting

Push-button locks can be broken into 10x faster.

4 seconds vs. 40 seconds.

Wow. I just visited the "City" thread for the first time. I mean, WOW! That's scary. It's inhuman! It could be used for torture on the Taleban detainees in Cuba. Actually no, it's too inhumaine.

After that thread, how can anyone critise threads like this?

Anyway, personally I love the "turn" locks. The feeling of the manly, strong lock engaging as you turn the handle just can't be beat. The "click" lock is frankly too poncy. If I were a teenager, I wouldn't want such a lame lock protecting me and my wanking activities from full view of the rest of the household.

HAHAHA. Oh Saloth, you kill me. Your sense of humor is just so stunning.  Yeah sure

Funny how most of the threads on here are "copied and pasted", yet you choose to try and sling the one I do? In the immortal words of kool Moe Dee, "You got a lock on my jock like a pitbull". 70% of your posts are in relation to me. 20% are in relation to 764er, and 10% go to garbage like the city thread. You try to comment on my life, when it appears to me that you have such a void in your's, then you have to pretty much stalk people on here. Funny how I'm a "bully". What are you...besides someone who likes to use a name of a mass murderer for a screen name?

BACK ON TOPIC.......

I once was taught how to break into a room that has a "click" door lock. hehehe.... so I would have to go with the "turn" door lock as the best.

Seb146: turn door locks are no more secure. They can also be opened with just a small screwdriver. That is why I didn't bring security into the post. Both are equally easy to open from the outside.
