When the bolt is extended (locked), the dead bolt projects into the doorframe at least 1 inch, and it cannot be forced back (unlocked) by applying pressure to the end of the bolt. In situations where there is a window in or adjacent to the door, a double-cylinder dead bolt lock (one that requires a key to open from either side) should be used. 2 ½”-3” Mortise Locks shall range from 1 1/4”-2 ¾” backset, 1 3/8”- 1 ¾” door thickness, and 2 ½”- 3” case depth.

Padlocks. Padlocks must be key-retaining and be stamped with "US," or "US Set" if a padlock set. Key-retaining means the key must be captive (unmovable) in the cylinder when the padlock is un-locked.

Security doors.
