Cipher Lock (Shabbat Lock)
Shabbat lock also referred to as Shabbos lock is a fully mechanical push button lock requiring no batteries to operate it. This makes it an ideal lock for use on sabbath for people who observe it. This is a deadbolt style lock, meaning that it has to be manually re-locked each time.
Shabbat lock is easily reversible so it can be used for either left or right hand opening doors. It operates on a single user programmable code which can be easily changed without removing the lock from the door itself. Shabbat lock is also weather resistant making it versatile to use either on interior or exterior doors.

You can also choose to have one of our locksmith techs install the lock and program it for you as it does require drilling if the existing lock is a traditional deadbolt.

Mortise lock has been in use since the 18th century, making it one of the oldest designs still in use today. They can be usually found on older homes in Baltimore and many other older cities in Maryland. What makes these locks different from regular twist knobs that we are used to is that they require a pocket to be cut in the door.
A newer door with lock cut-outs for normal twist knob will require modifications to properly fit a mortise lock. That is the reason why most people will contact a professional locksmith to have this done properly. However, a person with a decent knowledge of woodworking will be able to undertake this task him or herself.
Mortise locks can vary in design and functionality, from simple non-locking sprung latch to a combination of deadbolt and a latch. Recently mortise locks have become more popular for businesses across Maryland and DC because of newer higher security designs. Advanced Security Safe and Lock carries a variety of Mortise locks for various residential and commercial applications.
We provide comprehensive services for all varieties of mortise lock including installation, removal, repair, re-keying, and lock-out service. Our locksmiths are very familiar with the inner workings and installation process of mortise locks as we encounter quite a few around Maryland and DC. If you have a problem with your mortise lock not functioning properly, give us a call and one of highly trained professionals can be dispatched to your location anywhere in central Maryland or DC within minutes.
