Latch locks refer to locks that have a beveled, spring loaded bolt that slides past the jam edge and drops into the hole. These locks keep the door shut when closed, generally give you a knob or lever to pull or push the door open/closed and provide some degree of security. But not nearly the security of a deadbolt lock. The newer latches have a pin which, when properly installed does not allow the latch to be pushed back by a credit card or other means when the door is closed and locked. Proper installation is the key here.

These kinds of mechanical locks can be used for many places, for example they can be used as Drawer LockCam LockGlass Door LockCabinet Lock and Wardrobe Lock. Even with an alarm and an armoured door, if you haven't got a good quality lock, a burglar could easily force it and enter the house undisturbed. Crime data regularly compiled by the Home Office show that most burglars (almost 70%) force the front door. About 20% come in through the window and the rest don't actually break in: they gain entrance because the homeowners have forgotten to lock the door.

Home security begins with the front door, lock and cylinder that you choose.
