The number of burglaries continues to rise sharply. This is partly due to the fact that burglars are constantly developing new techniques that make breaking in faster and faster. One of the popular break-in techniques is core pulling. A kind of screw is hammered into the lock so that the cylinder is pulled out. The faster burglars can enter homes, the more attractive it becomes. In this way, burglars can be in your house within 3 minutes. The percentage of locks that are protected against core pulling is alarmingly low. Only 1 in 8 locks is protected against this. If you want to ensure that burglars are busy forcing your lock for at least more than 3 minutes, then you must have locks with at least SKG** certification, in combination with so-called core pull protection.
Breaking in through the back door
Most burglaries happen through the back door. You can't imagine how many people are left who don't lock their doors. These are mainly young people and children (25 to 40%). Locks are also unsafe in almost 8% of the cases. So choose to have a locksmith investigate how your burglary prevention is. For example, have anti-burglary strips or smart locks that close automatically. The less professional burglar will have to make more effort to break in and therefore prefer to choose eggs for their money. Would you like to discover for yourself how the security of your home is?
