    Pros and cons of rim automatic deadlatches

    Locksmiths

    Hey, I’m just wondering, what are some of the pros and cons of rim automatic deadlatches that come with key-locking handles? In what cases/properties might this type of lock system be best suited?

    "The auto deadlatch has an additional benefit of being lockable from the inside using a lock latch, ideal for a family home but not for HMOs as once locked internally you cannot open externally."
