Anderson door key cylinders are manufactured for easy removal. This allows customers to re-key the cylinders so lost keys can be replaced or so that locks takes the same key as other entry doors.

Lever locks are designed to house both the lock assembly, lock housing and handle mechanism in one piece. Lock strikes are the lock component that is fitted to the door frame and keeps the door closed and in the locked position. Anderson designs both hooked door strikes and classic open receiver strikes. Hooked door strikes are manufactured with a hook mechanism that catches the door as it is closed, pulls it into the strike and locks it. The open receiver strike does not have the hook component.

Auxiliary door locks are also known as "foot locks" because they are located near the base of the door and can be locked and unlocked by stepping down on them. Auxiliary door locks are specifically designed to be used with Anderson patio doors.
