How to Burglar Proof Doors

Often after experiencing a break in, the first thought that comes to mind is ‘how did this happen’ and ‘how can I prevent it from happening again?’. Quickly Locksmith in Miami is here to shed some light on how and why burglars do what they do and more importantly, how you can stay one step ahead and prevent these things from happening. As most locksmiths will tell you, understanding the weaknesses of your locks and security systems will predict the solution and prevent the most common burglary tactics from becoming an actual burglary!

Massive attack:

Home burglars are experts in their field. They have their tricks and they also know your neighborhood. Looking for a local locksmith is imperative as not only are they qualified and experts in their field, but they also know your neighborhood and the common methods thieves are using in the local area.

Speak to your local locksmith experts and ask how recent burglaries are taking place in your area. Often, you’ll find that brute force is used to break down weak wooden doors and you’d probably be surprised at how easily and with so little noise burglars are capable of doing this. 90% of burglars would rather avoid metal doors as breaking them is a much bigger task. More importantly perhaps is that doing so quietly is almost impossible and draws a lot of attention.

Speak to our experts at Quickly Locksmiths for expert advice on your local community and how we can protect your house and belongings!

Prevent direct door access:

Quickly Locksmiths in Miami know all too well that the harder it is to gain direct access to a door, the harder it is to break into the property behind it. We can provide individual assessment of your property and make expert suggestions on what can be done to limit access. For example, an additional lock on your gates or a security camera placed in plain sight to act as a deterrent and an added layer of security.

If a device such as these has been used, it’s important to make sure its effective – check to see it actually stops the door from being shaken open and is solid enough to do its job.

At any point if you’re in doubt, don’t hesitate to ask for our professional advise!
