Tips from our locksmith
- 2 out of 3 burglars gain entry to properties using the front or back doors with the other third entreing through a window. This concludes it is of the upmost importance to make sure every time you leave your home you lock up. Another method of gaining entry is by using force, usually by kicking down the door. To prevent this we can install London bars to your door frame which will make them much stronger and force resistant.
- Another method used to gain entry is known as lock snapping. This is when a criminal uses simple tools such as a screwdriver to gain access to the lock mechanism and thus render it useless. To prevent this being a problem you can get ITCC to install an anti snap lock in your doors, such as an ABS 3 star lock which is both police and insurance approved.
- Burglaries usually occur in the summer months between June and August as this is the time of the year where people tend to be more carless and leave the windows open and unlocked. Burglaries tend to take place either at night or during the working hours usually between 10am and 3pm, when most people are either at work or school. The typical burglar is aged between 18 – 25, male and is on the lookout for small easy to sell items such as phones, laptops, tablets, jewellery and car keys. Common tools such as hammers and screwdrivers are used to gain entry to homes. Burglaries may seem random however there is a very simple selection process, which is the home must be empty and have easy access, so low quality locks, single glazed windows for example. And at the moment burglars are haveing a great time with the police only managing to solve 6% of burglaries.
