|Favourite point of attack
is the locking plate. If it is levered off the door opens. (See
|Same point of attack.
Fitting a large bolt on the inside of doors will assist in
preventing the door opening. Particularly kitchen and all outside
doors should be done.
It would be easy for criminals to climb onto the wall and lift the
tiles on the shallow pitch roof. The ceiling board offers no
resistance to entry. (see ceiling photo)
Same house. The expanding door offers very
little protection to the wooden door. The lock plate on the wooden
jamb is easily levered away from the wood
3.Inside the same house.
The panel of the door leaning against the window. The panels
are held in position by 1/4 round beading 5 to 7 mm and
secured with panel pins (small nails). Wonderful 30 years ago.
|4.The door has a
steel gate. The glass windows on the RHS does not have any
protection. The beading around the glass has been removed. Glass
placed against the door. Note the CHUBB warning on the wall. Was the
owner given any security advice?
|How would you
like to come home and find every room in shambles? Every cupboard
and drawer turned out as the thieves search for your valuable items.
Of course the first prize will be a firearm that you forgot to
remove from under the pillow, next will be money or jewelery. DVD's
and VCR's are acceptable, (for resale). If they do not urinate or
defecate in your house you may be lucky. Its time you examined your
security, get some advice from Westville Locksmiths. If you have
purchased a property and upgrading of the locks should be considered.
Make your property difficult to enter. Its cheaper in the long run.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
