What locks should I have on my wooden front door?

Traditionally on a wooden front door you would have a rim lock/ Nightlatch, often referred to as a Yale lock, which is normally fitted around shoulder height for convenience opening the door and latches shut when you close the door. You should also have a 5 lever British Standard BS3621 mortice deadlock, often referred of as a Chubb lock, ideally fitted on the lower third of the door. You need a 5 lever British Standard BS3621 deadlock for your own safety and to comply with your contents insurance policy.
