No way out


In Denmark I'm used to locks like these http://satwcomic.com/up1loader/denlock.jpg on the front door, so to me it was slightly creepy that you needed a key to get out in England.

The "key from inside" type of lock used to be more common in America but it went out of favor in the mid-20th century. You can buy them, of course, and they do have uses, but it's more typical for the inside of a door to just have a latch (deadbolt, too) that doesn't require a key to exit the premises.

It keeps your children from getting out and getting kidnapped.

Not common in America except if the door has any windows on either side. A burglar could smash the window and reach the inside of the lock from the outside; requiring a key to unlock from the inside prevents this.

I can see so many safety problems with that :\

I generally prefer the ones which automatically lock when you close them, except when you accidentally lock yourself out! :P
