Home security – Best practices to secure your home in 2018

We’ve all been there before… left our keys in the door whilst rushing out.  
 
Don’t let burglars take advantage of your unlocked windows and doors- invest in new door locks from Lock Shop Direct today!

Did you know that 1 in every 4 burglaries is as a result of windows and doors being left open?

Burglars are opportunistic; leaving a spare key under the doormat or plant pot makes their job too easy.

Upgrading locks.


Your front door is not the only door that needs up-to-date locks- make sure you inspect all of the doors within your property, both on the interior and the exterior. We supply a range of locks including mortice latches and locks, anti-snap door cylinders and safe locks, making it easier for you to secure your home in 2018!

New property?


You should consider upgrading your locks if you’ve recently moved house. Although the previous owners should have handed in the keys to the property when they moved out, you can never be too sure how many keys were cut.

Upgrading the locks is the safest option, it ensures that only those with a key can gain access to your home.

Door security.

 
Within our extensive collection of door locks, we supply various anti-snap door cylinder locks. These make ideal replacements for any locks that are perhaps outdated or easy to pick.

The anti-snap cylinders can prevent intruders from breaking an entry to your property, ensuring that your valuables are protected.
 
What about Digi locks?

A Digi lock requires no keys, making it more convenient for you when leaving the house in a rush!
Instead of a key, these locks operate by a combination code. With a Digi lock, you have the opportunity to restrict access to your property, making sure that your valuables don’t end up in the wrong hands!

Garage security.
