Secure Your Home With Locks and Alarm Systems

The clocks have gone back, burglars take advantage of long dark nights. Time to make sure you secure your home with your locks and alarm systems before you go out.

Householders are being warned to beware of a spike in home burglaries as the clocks go back.  Co-operative Insurance said that the number of home and motor insurance claims usually shoots up after British summer time ends. Having analysed data since 2013, the insurer has found that home theft claims surge by about 38 per cent in the five months after the clocks go back, compared to claims during the five preceding months.

Give yourself time, it doesn’t take much to check that all your windows and doors are properly locked, set your alarm if you have one before you leave home.

One of the best tips is take time to make sure that you don’t leave any keys in door locks, these are visible to burglars who check for this and can see them through other windows.

Look after yourselves, BURGLARIES ARE NO LONGER A POLICE PRIORITY – see our post dated 28 July 2015.

 

Lock Change Service

Can a stranger let themselves into your house? We always advise on changing the locks when you move into a new property and this morning’s customer is the perfect example of why it is so important. A lady rang needing her front door lock to be changed as soon as possible. It transpired in the conversation that they had got up and gone down stairs this morning to find a strange man fast asleep on their sofa! It turned out that he was a friend of the previous owner! Mmmmm. Do you know who has keys to your home? CHANGE YOUR DOOR LOCKS WHENEVER YOU MOVE IN.

Burglaries No Longer A Police Priority

This morning I watched some of Victoria Derbyshire’s news programme on the BBC.  She had a studio interview with Sara Thornton, Chair of the National Police Chiefs Council, about the changes to policing that we must expect.  It is upsetting news for victims of burglary as it will not be investigated with any urgency.  Cases of burglary will not be a priority to attend as quickly as they have been in the past and ‘they may attend to collect evidence’, does that mean that they may not attend at all?  Good news for the burglars, bad news for victims – you’re on your own!

Locking Your Multi Point Lock (MPL) Door

I am seeing an astonishing number of people who do not know how to correctly lock their multi point locking doors, they just pull them closed behind them when they go out – the door isn’t locked. Please remember to lock it properly by lifting the handle and turning your key in the lock, if you don’t it is just latched and easy for a burglar to bypass without damage giving issues with any insurance claim.

Failed Multipoint Lock (mpl)

Attended to a lady in Crowborough after a locksmith’s failed attempts to open her upvc back door with a broken multipoint lock left in tears.  We were able to open the broken lock, fit a new mpl gearbox and leave her overjoyed with a working upvc back door.

She thought she was calling a local Crowborough Locksmith she found on Google but it turned out that his company was in London, so do your research!

To avoid disappointment call a professional locksmith and security company, preferably a member of the Master Locksmiths Association.
