A home is only as strong as its weakest point and the weakest point in your home is the last place you would think to defend.
Most of us consider the front door the place where an intruder will attack, but you couldn’t be more wrong. Crooks know that front doors are tough to break down in most cases, so they normally skip past them and go after an easier way to get into the house.
Most homes built in the last 50 years or so have back doors made out of the flimsiest aluminum frame and easy to break glass. This includes the patio doors a lot of us have to the back yard.
Most of the time 85% of patio doors are actually locked with small, under one inch hooks that are attached to the aluminum frame. Not very secure!
You don’t have to be a large sized person in order to rip those hooks right out of the frame. It can take as little as two to three minutes and they will have lifted the entire door out of its frame. It is really that easy.
One home defense tip is to add a simple steel drop-down security bar to your sliding glass door you can prevent any criminal from every jimmying your door open and you can even make your own with about $25 worth of materials that you can get from any hardware store.
A security bar will also keep our door from being forced open, but what about all that glass?
One flick of a criminal’s crowbar will shatter every inch of that patio door. But if you follow this simple tip you can stop that from happening to you.
