Door Hardware Functions and Applications:
- Front door
- Garage door
- Sliding glass doors
What you need:
- The most common lock function for exterior door hardware is a keyed entry function. Locks with this function have a keyed cylinder facing the outside of the home and a thumbturn on the interior. When the door is locked, it can only be opened with a key from the outside. When the knob is turned from inside the home, and the thumbturn is unlocked, the door will open freely.
- Keyed entry locks are often used in conjunction with an auxiliary deadbolt for added security. A single cylinder deadbolt has a thumbturn on the inside and requires a key from outside. Double cylinder deadbolts use a key on both sides of the door. This application is often recommended for doors with glass panels. If an intruder breaks the glass he will not be able to reach in and unlock the deadbolt without the key.
- Many homeowners choose handlesets for their entry doors rather than knobs or levers. Handlesets use a deadbolt to provide a high level of security, and are available in a wide variety of styles to complement the home’s decor.
- A mortise or interconnected lock with a dwelling entry function is another option for exterior doors. This lockset features an integral deadbolt that is keyed from the outside and inside the home, both the deadbolt and the latchbolt are retracted by turning the knob. This allows for faster exit during an emergency.
- Closet and passage
What you need:
- Many homeowners will find that locks with a passage function are sufficient for most interior door knobs. This lockset has no cylinder and is freely operational from both sides of the door at all times. It is used on doors in hallways, closets, and other rooms where locks are not needed.
- Privacy locks are similar to passage locks, but they include locking using a push or turn button from inside of a room. They are used on bathrooms and bedrooms, where privacy is needed, and typically feature an emergency release mechanism on the outside.
- For home offices, we recommend using a free interior entrance lockset, which can be locked with a key from the outside. Occupants can freely exit the room at anytime without a key.
- If you have a storeroom or pantry that you need to keep kids out of, use a lock with a storeroom function. This lock is always locked unless opened with a key. When the door is closed, the lock automatically reverts back to a locked position. From inside the room, the door will open freely at all times to allow someone inside the room to exit.

Renovations to begin on SEAGO’s new office location.
After many months of efforts to prepare the necessary plans, specifications and bid documents, SEAGO has successfully procured a general contractor to renovate its new office location at 1403 West SR 92 in Bisbee, Arizona. The project was first bid in February of this year, but only one bid was received and the proposed cost was nearly twice the amount budgeted for the project. The project was re-advertised in June and bids were opened on July 12th.
The low bid was from Sierra Remodeling and Home Builders, from nearby Sierra Vista, Arizona. After evaluating the bids, seeking clarifications on several items, selecting bid alternates, and checking the apparent low bidder’s references and records from the Arizona Registrar of Contractors, SEAGO issued a Notice of Award to the contractor in the amount of $134,457.61 on July 26th. A Notice to Proceed will be issued after SEAGO receives the required 100% Performance Bond, 100% Labor and Materials Bond, and executed contract documents from the contractor.
“Sierra Remodeling and Home Builders has a perfect record with the Registrar of Contractors, and all of their references raved about their responsiveness to customer concerns, quality work and customer service” said Randy Heiss, SEAGO’s Executive Director. “It took a long time and a lot of work to reach this point, and we are truly excited at the prospect of working with such a reputable firm and look forward to successful project completion” Heiss said.
SEAGO purchased the existing building and approximately 2 acres near the intersection of SR 92 and Melody Lane in October 2010. The contractor’s performance period is 120 days, so it is anticipated that this project will be completed by December. A grand opening will be held in January 2013 after SEAGO has settled into its new home.
