2. Drawer lock: divided into all-copper drawer lock, copper-covered drawer lock, aluminum conductor drawer lock and cabinet lock. Its main specifications are 22.5mm and 16mm.
3. Billiard lock: divided into single-safety lock, double-safety lock, triple-safety lock and multi-safety lock.
4. Core-inserting lock: also known as anti-theft lock, divided into steel core-inserting door lock and wooden core-inserting door lock.
5. Spherical locks: divided into triple-tubular copper spherical lock, copper spherical door lock and compartment lock.
6. Color lock: divided into glass door lock, mortise lock, button lock, electrical box lock, chain lock and cam lock, etc.
7. Electronic control lock: fingerprint lock, magnetic card, IC card lock, and coded lock.

It must be equipped with a special function to play the role of safety and security. Generally, there are two entrance doors: an iron door, a front door (usually a wooden door). For steel door, both sides can be locked, which is commonly known as: double lock. Core-inserted steel door lock and multi-safety door lock are commonly used, So when making choice, you should pay attention to the distance between two doors which should not be less than 80mm (8 cm). Otherwise, the two doors can't be closed at the same time because the lock handle distance is not long enough. A big wooden door handle is usually installed in the front door for the purpose of decoration.

Third, according to manufacturing technique:
1. According to material:
A. Brass can be made into AC, AB, PB and BN spherical lock. AC, AB and BN are electroplated and painted, and BP is electroplated and polished.
B. Stainless steel can be made into SSPS spherical lock. The SS must be processed by abrasive paper and PS must be polished by hemp wheel.
C. Red copper SB must be polished by hemp wheel and sealed.
D. Log, beech and original beech must be closed. (the materials in the process of the production: brass, red copper, stainless steel, beech, log, marble, iron sheet, steel for inner core, zinc alloy, and aluminum)
 
2. The process of production: raw material shearing - inclinable power press punching with a variety of mould - trimming edge - sandblasting - polishing - electroplating sealing - assembly - inspection - packaging.
 
3. Assembly process - the installation process of spherical lock parts: front part - lock core - cap - bracket (including flange, sliding board, supporting frame, decorative sets) - former cover - switch - slider - spring - damper - safety plug - inner core set - rear cover - back part.
 
4. Surface decoration: SS - stainless steel sanding, SP - stainless steel polishing, SN - stainless steel cleaning, SBV - red copper sanding, PBV - red copper polishing, SB - brass sanding, PB brass polishing, BP - iron plating imitation gold, AC - antique copper, BN - black nickel, NK - iron plating bright nickel.
