Three point lock

Three-point locks refer to a type of locking mechanism that is being used in doors to provide extra security. They typically consist of three separate locking points (for both residential and
commercial purposes), engaging with corresponding strike plates on the door frame.

When the lock is engaged, the three points simultaneously extend into the strike plates, securing the door at multiple locations. You can see this type of lock on front business doors,
home sliding glass doors or even emergency exit doors.

This design significantly improves the door’s resistance to forced entry compared to standard single-point locks such as door knobs, or even deadbolts.
