Lock snapping is used by burglars to break into property, they literally ‘snap’ the lock in two. It takes seconds to gain entry into you home and they don’t need any specialist tools or knowledge. Almost all Upvc doors have a euro cylinder lock, the cylinder is manipulated to open the lock. The cylinder is the weakest point, if it is compromised in any way then the other locking points are useless.

Door Viewers                  

Door viewers also better known as spy holes are a fantastic security accessory. Your front door should not be opened without seeing who is calling first. Keeping one if not two main entries to your home is essential alongside having quality locks fitted. Doors and windows are the first point of entry for burglars, it’s important for people to have their home security covered in as many ways possible. Many home owners overlook how important it is to see who is on the other side of your door. If you think about it, it really is one of the best way of preventing unwanted callers. Darlington locksmiths advise you to keep your home better protected and get a door viewer fitted.
There are a few different types of door viewers to choose from on the market, why not give us a call and we can tell you more about what is involved in having one fitted to your door. We also advise that you do not get an amateur locksmith to install your door viewer as there are many things to take into consideration when installing one. Make sure that your locksmith is a professional and has many years experience. After all, you don’t want the security to your home to be at risk.

Window Restrictors

Darlington locksmiths highly recommend this security product if you have a young child or a dog. Outward opening windows can be very dangerous and a window restrictor will help keep your child or pet safer for your peace of mind.

We only fit high quality window restrictors which have been designed to withstand up to 100kg of pressure because we understand your child and pet’s safety is paramount. The restrictor opens 10cm which allows fresh air to ventilate each room in your house. They come in different colours to match your decor.

The device is locked in place with a key so your child will be unable to unlock it by accident.

Always ensure the key is out of the reach of children.

Window alarms/sensors

Gavin at Sir Locksalot Locksmith Darlington recommends that you use window alarms/sensors alongside the other home security you have. They are cost efficient and come in a range of prices. Protect all of your windows if you are at home or not. They are loud enough for neighbours and passers by to hear. If someone tries to break into your home by using the window as an entry point, then they would set off the trigger that will set off the alarm.

They are an excellent deterrent too, if a would be burglar sees that you have window sensors fitted, they would think twice about breaking into your home.

You could use them to protect small children too, if a child tries to open a window when you are out of the room the alarm will sound, letting you know what the child is doing.

They are easy to connect to your window, but  if you are unsure about connecting them yourself, then just call Darlington Locksmiths and our professional locksmith will be there to do the job for you.

Garden Sheds

Many people put their tools, bikes and gardening tools in their shed, this means that it becomes a target for burglars. A lot of people have a weak lock on the door, this is a huge mistake as burglars can be gain entry in seconds and take very expensive items away with them. Call Darlington locksmiths today for advice on how to secure your shed and outbuildings, don’t try and get a handyman to do this, always call on your local professional locksmith who is always there to help.

Going on holiday

Have you come home from a fantastic holiday to find out that your home has been burgled?  A break in is bad at any time, but it somehow seems worse if it happens while you are on holiday.  You may find yourself asking, “Why didn’t the neighbours hear anything?” “Why didn’t I use the timers that I bought months ago?”

Almost three quarters of burglaries occur when there is no one at home and so this is something important and we should take this seriously.  To some it’s common sense to have a checklist, other people don’t give it a second thought.

You should ask your neighbours/family to

  • Pop in each day to draw/open the curtains
  • Switch lights on and off
  • Water the plants
  • Move your car
  • Take in your post and newspapers

Things you should put away or leave out of sight

  • DIY tools should be locked in a garage
  • Garden tools should be locked in the shed
  • All keys should be left out of sight
  • All items of value should be removed from your car
