Preventing intruders with door/window locks
Reduce your chances of being burgled by reviewing your home security. Badly fitted or lack of door or window locks will greatly increase the likelihood of your property being targeted. Thieves like an easy life, and windows and doors that are not secured are asking for trouble.
So always lock doors and make sure you use adequate window locks when you are out to make it difficult for them – in most cases they will choose a less well protected house rather than yours.
Nearly half of all burglaries happen when a home is empty. Most burglars are opportunist, and will make the most of an open windows or unlocked door. In many cases, it takes just two minutes for someone to break in, steal property and leave.
Many insurance companies are insisting on all accessible windows having window locks fitted.
