Tips For When You Go On Holiday

Most people take a holiday every year, many take more than one and they give a lot of time preparing for it. How much time is spent thinking about your home security, or what would happen when you came home and found that you have been burgled. It’s really simple to make sure that your home is as secure as it can be. Next time you plan your holiday why not plan your home security first? You can always call Redcar Locksmith to make a home visit and check the security for you.

Here are a few tips to help you.

  • Inform a member of your family or neighbour that you are planning to go on holiday and leave your details with them. Explain to them the date you go and return and how long you will be away for. Ask them to go into your home every day so it looks like someone is living there. They can open and close curtains, put lights on and take care of the post. One way a burglar can tell if people are away is by looking through the letterbox to see if there are more than a few letters on the floor. You can inform Royal Mail and they will keep your letters until you get back home. You can always tell them that you will do the same for them when they go away.
  • Don’t put your details on your luggage when you travel. A thief can get all of your details if you do and know that your home is empty.
  • If you have valuable jewellery and documents ask a family member to hold on to them for you.
  • Make sure all of your windows are fitted with security locks, they are an excellent precaution.

Secondary Door Security

We all know how important it is to have good strong entry and exit doors and frames. Alongside this security are many products that you can buy to add extra security to your doors. One of those products is called Kickstop. We have found they are an excellent product that will reinforce wooden frames and doors. They do not need bolting or locking, they sole purpose is to strengthen the door and frame around the existing hinges and locks. They are there to resist being kicked in by the would be burglar and so help to avoid a burglary taking place. You can see part of the guard from outside so it is an excellent deterrent, therefore the thief should not attempt to break into your property. They offer fantastic protection against forced entries.

Letter Hoods

Burglars are always coming up with new ideas on how to gain entry to your home. One method used for stealing house or car keys is ‘fishing’. A burglar will put a long rod through your letterbox to try and ‘hook’ or ‘fish’ for keys that have been placed close to your front door. By having a letter hood fitted you can deter the burglar from doing this as it is difficult to get any rod or arm through your letterbox. Locksmith Redcar would advise having one fitted because they can also stop would be burglars looking through your letterbox and targeting items to steal. Believe it or not, the arm of a young burglar can fit through a letterbox and open a night latch. The more security products that are used to secure your home the better it is to keep you, your family and your possessions safe.

There are many types of garages, and they all have slightly different security needs. Garages these days are used not only to store your car but many other items too. From D.I.Y tools to bikes and deep freezers. Adding the cost of all those items together comes to a pretty penny. Locksmiths at locksmith Redcar would suggest that you have excellent garage security to keep your items safe. Garage security products come in all forms. You have to make sure that the door or doors of your garage are fully protected, you can also buy many products to lock down your valuables to the floor. This ensures the burglar can not pick things up and run away with them. You can also have heavy duty boxes fitted to the garage floor then you are able to store your garden and d.i.y tools inside. Don’t forget, some garages have windows too, again, make sure that the window is secure, try covering it over so that would be burglars can not see inside.
