The Danger of Open Doors and Windows
Closed doors sometimes have unpleasant consequences, but so do open doors. Sneaking in is when a criminal enters your home without causing harm. This could be, for example, when you have the back door open in the summer and go upstairs for a while. Someone sees his or her opportunity and steals your valuable property.
Criminals move very quickly. For example, a burglary lasts only 30 seconds on average. In the case of burglary, criminals do not need to first force your lock or break a window. They can just go through the open door. That saves a lot of time.
Burglary can also occur if your key is stolen. The thief can then simply use your key to open your door.
The babbling trick is a common way for criminals to get into your home. A or several people try to enter your home with an excuse, such as that they are from a power company and are coming to check your meter.
Never just open up to strangers and always check someone’s identification. You can have a peephole installed by Locksmith 365 that allows you to see who is at the door.
How Do You Counter Burglary?
The easiest way to prevent break-ins is to always lock your doors when you are out for a while or even when you go upstairs. Have your keys been stolen? Have the lock replaced immediately. We at Locksmith 365 can do that for you.
How to Prevent Burglars from Opening Your Doors and Windows
A burglar always does damage. For example, he or she will force your lock. Fortunately, you can take preventive measures that reduce the likelihood of burglary. There are different methods burglars use to get into your home and different ways you can guard against them.
1. Drilling a hole in your door or window
Burglars drill a hole in your door or window, just below or just above the keyhole. A burglar pushes an iron wire through this hole and uses it to try to turn your key. Therefore, lock doors and windows. Store the keys afterwards.
Angling is a burglary method in which criminals usually use a bent-over metal clothes hanger. Through your mailbox, they insert the clothes hanger and thereby push the door handle down. If you lock the door, it cannot be opened by angling.
3. Breaking down your door or window
A burglar kicks in your window or your door. A rather crude but effective method. To prevent burglary in this way, you can reinforce your door and/or have a lock installed at knee height.
A method burglars sometimes use. With a pass, they push in the latch bolt. The latch bolt is the part of the lock that you see sticking out of the door when the door is open. If the latch bolt is depressed, burglars can get inside.
One way to counter flipping is to lock the door. You can also install an anti-intrusion strip. An anti-intrusion strip consists of two metal parts that collapse together when the door is closed. The parts fall over the gap between the door and the doorframe. The crack is completely sealed and burglars cannot insert a pass between them.
5. Cylinder breakdown
A cylinder is a part of cylinder lock. It is metal tube where you insert your key. Unfortunately, burglars can use pliers to break the cylinder and then pull it out of the lock. The door then opens easily. We recommend a cylinder lock with an SKG (Foundation for Quality Facade Construction) rating.
6. Pull out the cylinder
With special tools, a cylinder can be pulled out. What can you do about this? Have your old lock replaced with a new cylinder lock with SKG certification.
A lock with the SKG quality mark
What is the SKG seal of approval? SKG, or the Foundation for Quality Facade Construction, is an independent organization that tests and approves locks. The SKG has very strict requirements for a lock. A lock must be sufficiently resistant to burglary. If a lock meets these requirements, it receives a seal of approval with 1, 2 or 3 stars. What do those stars mean?
- 1 star: burglar-resistant
- 2 stars: heavy burglar resistance
- 3 stars: extra heavy burglar resistance
We can install all kinds of locks with the SKG seal of approval. For example, we install very solid cylinder locks with the SKG seal of approval.
