HOW TO BURGLAR-PROOF YOUR DOORS

Published by FUN MATES PRESS

 

The majority of devices mentioned in this report cost very

little.  All of them will help reduce burglary and make your

house or apartment more secure.

Begin with a home "security" check.  Start with the front door

and work clockwise around the entire inside of your home,

finishing with a back yard, fence and shrubs, gates and garage.

Shrubbery should never block the view of your front door.  This

allows an intruder the opportunity of privacy to gain entrance.

A wide angle viewer in the door lets you know your visitor in

advance. This item is recommended over a chain lock.

LOCKS, BOLTS AND HINGES

A DEATH-LATCH is an inexpensive lock set which keeps the burglar

from simply slipping your door open with a plastic credit card.

This method of entry is common in many areas, but very easy to

prevent.

AUXILIARY DEADLOCK:  1" deadbolt, single cylinder with hardened

cylinder guard, and thumb turn.

For extra security, a single cylinder deadbolt lock, with one

inch throw and case-hardened insert, is recommended for all

exterior doors.  If you have easily breakable glass within 40

inches of a deadbolt lock, it should be augmented with a

stronger type of glass or plastic to provide adequate security.

Most police departments do not recommend deadbolt locks for

residential use.  You may be adding additional security at the

expense of personal safety with a double cylinder deadbolt.  For

example, you could lock yourself in and not be able to escape in

case of fire or other emergency.

THE RIM LOCK is a 1" deadbolt lock which is installed on the

inside surface of the door.  It is less expensive than other

types of locks, but equally effective for security.

THE "JIMMY-PROOF" RIM LOCK is another lock which is installed on

the inside surface of the door.  But this lock has vertical dead

bolts, which is an approved locking device.

CANE BOLTS:  1/2" in diameter by 12" high installed at the top

and bottom of the inactive door offers minimum security.  Many

homes with pairs of doors, use half-barrel slidebolts on the

inactive door.  These are weak and totally inadequate.

FLUSH BOLTS:  Installed at the top and bottom of the inactive

door or a pair of doors, flush bolts offer additional security,

since the intruder cannot get at these devices to tamper with

them if the doors are locked.

HINGE PROTECTION

Some exterior doors are improperly installed so that the hinges

are installed from outside.  To protect such a door from being

lifted from its hinges by pulling the hinge pin, follow these

simple steps:

(1) Remove two screws, opposite each other, from both leaves of

the hinge.  (2) Insert screw or concrete nail into jamb leaf,

protruding 1/2".  (3)  Drill out the opposing screw hole in the

door.  Do this in the top and bottom hinge of the door.  When

closed, the hinge pins may be removed, but the door will remain

firmly in place.
