It's Easy to get into your home

It's Easy to get into your home

This past week there were three reported home break in that I heard on Live 5 News (WCSC) this is one of them

With news like

 Police say two men forced their way into the house and demanded their money, saying if the victims tried anything they’d shoot them. Both suspects were holding t-shirts over their faces to hide their identities.

 Or

 Deputies said that at about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, five men broke into the home of Edward McDaniel. They said the men stole money, jewelry and guns from the home.

 We can’t help but stress the importance of doing all that you can to prevent becoming the next victim. According to a StrikeMaster II offers a unique and innovative solution to prevent burglars from entering your home, StrikeMaster IIstrikes-back instantly. Its patented strike plates make the door casing virtually unbreakable. This is the easiest to install door jamb reinforcement product on the market today installed on over 15,000 homes

A former police officer was recently quoted. “I am a retired Chief of Police with more than 30 years in law enforcement and security and have investigated 1000’s of residential burglaries and domestic assaults that were due to the crashing or kicking in of the doors at the home. …. I am proud to announce that I have seen an amazing new product called the StrikeMaster II. This is inexpensive and stronger than any would-be homicidal maniac, I promise… the security market has finally produced a product that is better than locks and alarms. I highly recommend this product on all your outside doors at your home.” – Donald Purnell CLL, CFE, Director of Security, Sentry Watch, I
 
Will your door frame fail?

Will your door frame fail?

United States Department of Justice report: 1 of every 5 homes will experience a break-in or home invasion. That’s over 2,000,000 homes!   The easiest way for a criminal to get into your house is just too kick-in your door! The FBI says every 12 seconds a home is invaded by going right through the front or back door. This is called door frame failure. FBI statistics show 70% of all break-ins are from door-frame failure. 2:00 in the afternoon is the biggest break-in time Open your front door and look at the dead bolt plate. There is one inch of soft wood protecting the safety of your home – your door casings can not protect you from a thief kicking your door.

If the primary locks on your doors are entry locksets, and they’re working fine, there’s probably little to gain by replacing them.  None of the entry locksets afforded great protection, not even top-rated ones. If you want to make your doors more secure, start by beefing up the hardware in their door jambs.”
