It is generally recommended that you use the fitting five-lever mortise deadlocks for all your external doors.
The mortice locks are usually attached to the door itself can only be opened using a key. These locks are commonly used on front doors as well as back doors in combination with the cylinder lock. The mortice locks come in several variations including two, three, five and seven lever mechanisms. The greater the number of levers, the harder it is to pick the lock. Mortice locks are often described sash or deadlock due to the presence of a latch, bolt and a pair of handles.

These locks have the advantage that even in the event that the burglar gains entry through the window, he will not be able to exit through the door, because the doors require activation using keys.
