Here are 10 general tips this week to keep your home safe.
1: Keep bins away from garden gates and fences as burglars use these to climb on.
2: Keep keys out of site and never leave them in your locks.
3: Attach trellis to your fence and gates – it breaks when climbed on and makes a lot of noise.
4: Upgrade locks to British standard anti snap. Not only will these keep you safe but will also cover your insurance.
5: If you have French doors or double doors get a padlock. But you must remember to change the spindles inside.
6: Check for unusual markings outside your house – burglars use markings to target premises.
7: If you’re going out for just the night you could keep your lights on to make it look like you are at home.
8: Get a curved handle these are much harder to rip off your door.
9: Always lock windows and doors before going to bed.
10: Get yourself a flood light and a dog sign.
Don’t forget the more harder it is to get in your house the chances they will go elsewhere.
