The difference is in the name itself. A single-cylinder lock features keyed entry on the exterior of the lock and a thumbturn on the inside. A double-cylinder lock has keyed entry on both sides of the lock. A double-cylinder lock should be used in situations where the lock will be in close proximity to glass such as the front door of a business. This way, someone cannot break the glass and unlock the door by reaching inside the building.
