Windows and doors are the most used entry point for burglars and intruders. It is essential for homeowners to take extra precautions when securing these entryways and try to detect the potential threats of their home.
According to a recent study by the National Crime Prevention Council, a burglar will only spend a maximum of three minutes trying to break into a home. This means that by taking the required precautions, homeowners can make it difficult for intruders to access the house through any of the windows or doors, and hopefully cause the burglar to give up entirely.
The best method for ensuring home safety is having a professional 24 hour locksmith easily on hand. They will be able to properly advise the best products and security measures for the home in question.
Sliding Patio Doors
- These doors pose a high risk for break ins and they must be properly secured. Homeowners should instal a keyed lock on the bottom and top of a sliding door, and reinforce the glass by installing extra panels. This will ensure that the glass is sturdy and less likely to shatter when hit with force.
- To secure these doors, find a 24 hour locksmith in the area to install a proper deadlock. This lock provides extra security and can only be used when the home is occupied as it locks from the inside. Unless the burglar is destroying the door, it will be difficult to get past this lock. Ideally, the lock should be at least an inch long and of high quality.
- By installing an invisible security film on windows, homeowners are ensuring the glass will hold together when broken. The window will not fall out, and burglars will not be able to crawl through.
- Windows are the main entry point for burglars and people in suburban areas are well aware of this, as many already have locks installed on their windows. Ask a local 24 hour locksmith to find the best suited lock for the windows.
