These bolts are an excellent way in which you add extra security to your doors, or to essentially turn double doors into single doors. The main use is usually the later in which the bolt is used to keep one side of the door firmly locked in place whilst the other can freely be opened or closed. This also improves security when both doors are locked.

These bolts act very much like a usual locks, but in these instances are used additional security rather than the primary security. You would expect to find mortice bolts on french or double doors.
Barrel bolts are often the first solution which comes to mind when adding extra security to double doors. These tend to be one of the most rugged bolt products which comes in handy when security is the main goal. However, some people do find them less aesthetically pleasing meaning that some of the main uses tend to be on outdoor double doors which may be found on sheds or summer houses.
Flush bolts have many of the same security benefits as the other types of bolts, but also come with the added benefit of a minimum visible impact, making them ideal for internal double doors.
