What I mean by a “Self-Locking” Doorknob is any doorknob or latch that automatically locks when a door is shut. Getting locked out in this manner is so frustrating and can be avoided. “Self-Locking” Doorknobs or keyed entry doorknobs are the biggest source of our emergency lock-out service. The solution: Configure the door hardware so a lock-out is impossible. Recommendation: Replace all locking exterior doorknobs with passage doorknobs or levers (non-locking doorknobs or levers), using the deadbolt as the locking mechanism. (By the way, this is a far better way to secure your door). You might want to also consider purchasing a key-free entry lock, for better key control and to further reduce the chances of a lock-out.
