Privacy - Usually used on bathroom doors, and any other door that needs to be locked from the inside. A push button is provided on the inside rosette, pushing the button fixes the outside handle, turning the inside handle releases the lock. A clearance hole is provided in the outside rosette to permit the lock to be released with a nail, if needed. Privacy locks should not be used to

Dummy - Used on fixed (non-operating) doors and sometimes on closet doors. Sold as a pair, these handles do not operate, they stay in a fixed position, no latch is provided or normally needed. Dummy handles provide a firm grip where desired, and are used on the non-locking side of french doors to give balanced, matching appearance.

Single Cylinder - The most popular configuration for deadbolt locks, a keyed cylinder is provided for the outside and a turn-piece is located on the inside. The lock may be locked or unlocked with a key from the outside. The turn-piece allows locking or unlocking without a key from the inside. 
Double Cylinder - Used in situations where free egress from the inside is not needed or desired. Keyed cylinders are provided for both outside and inside. Locking and unlocking can be accomplished only with a key.
