Home Security Tips
Tip #1: SLIDING GLASS DOORS
Sliding glass doors can offer easy entry into your home.To improve security on existing sliding glass doors, you can install keyed locking devices that secure the door to the frame; adjust the track clearances on the doors so they can’t be pushed out of their tracks; or put a piece of wood or a metal bar in the track of the closed door to prevent the door from opening even if the lock is jimmied or removed.
Tip #2: WINDOWS
Most standard double-hung windows have thumbturn
locks between the two window panels. Don’t
rely on these—they can be pried open or easily
reached through a broken pane. Instead, install
keyed locking devices to prevent the window from
being raised from the outside, but make sure
everyone in the house knows where to find the
keys in case of an emergency. Some jurisdictions
have restrictions on this type of lock—check with
your local law enforcement before you install them.
An easy, inexpensive way to secure your windows
is to use the “pin” trick. Drill an angled hole
through the top frame of the lower window
partially into the frame of the upper window.Then
insert a nail or eyebolt.The window can’t be
opened until you remove the nail. Make a second
set of holes with the windows partly opened so
you can have ventilation without intruders.
