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.

Around here most of our doors can only be opened with keys as well, so it is common practice to make copies of your keys (you take them to people who have workshops for making key copies, the "chaveiros". They literally make a living out of that, though they frequently do other jobs as well since people don't exactly make new copies every day, so most of them basically do all sorts of small metalwork) and have lots of them, typically one in each car, or one for everyone in the family, and some spare ones kept in the house, to prevent this whole "getting trapped inside" from happening.

Most bathroom doors do have inside locks though, for obvious reasons.

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.

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.
