Burglar-Proof Your Home


Burglar-Proof Your Home

It is important to keep your family and home safe.  Here are a couple of things that may deter a burglar from breaking in. 

- Never leave keys in hiding places outside the house.

- Always keep your garage door closed and locked.

- Trim back all bushes under windows.

- Plant prickly, thorny shrubs or bushes under windows to discourage prowlers.

- Bright lights outside around all doors and window discourage break ins. Install motion triggered lights around corners of the home.

-- Install a solid core or metal-clad door fitted with both inside hinge pins and a minimum one-inch throw deadbolt lock.

- Doors with windows require a double key deadbolt.

- Secure garage doors with cane bolts and hasps.

- Install a peep hole in the front door.

- Secure crank Windows by drilling a hole through the latch frame and handle, then insert a metal pin or nail through the hole to lock the window in place.

- Place Operation Identification stickers on doors and windows.

- If you have a keypad garage door, reprogram the code.

- Never leave your garage door opener visible in your car.

- Never let strangers into your home. Never give out your address or phone number to strangers.
