The Dangers of Having Windows On Or Near Your Door

Take care in what type of lock you use for your front door. Having a simple thumb-turn dead bolt lock won’t do much good. Thieves will just knock out the glass, stick a hand in, and turn. Get a double cylinder lock that needs a key on the inside, that way even if they broke the window in your door, you’re still safe and they couldn’t get in.

About your locksmith !!

– Qualified Locksmiths – If they’re not an member of the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA), then they’re not qualified.

We can’t give you any preferable counsel over to utilize the MLA site to locate a fitting locksmith.

– ‘Police Approved’ – There is no such plan in the UK… any case is false, and an exceptionally deceptive lie. Keep you distance from!

– CRB Checked – Although not generally a falsehood, most locksmiths aren’t CRB checked (or what is presently really DBS), so request that they demonstrate it and you’ll soon perceive how reliable they are

– No Call Out Charges/Fees – Every locksmith needs paying for their work, paying little mind to what they call it, there is a charge. On the off chance that they’re attempting to delude you into supposing it’s free, they’re presumably worth giving a miss.
