You are ten times more likely to be burgled if you don’t have basic security - even something as simple as putting strong locks on your doors and windows will keep your house much safer. 35% of all burglaries are crimes of opportunity, where the burglar lets themselves in through unlocked doors or windows.

One of the most intrusive and dangerous forms of burglary happens when somebody poses as a legitimate worker, for example from a utility company, and tricks their way into homes. This is a rare but intimidating method, and we want you to know more about it so that you can protect yourself against it.

The Genuine Lock Co Locksmiths are based in Gravesend, Kent can supply and install a range of security system options. To be certain your house is safe follow our 10 home safety tips below.

  • Fit strong locks to external doors and windows, and make sure they are locked at all times
  • Always remove all keys from inside locks, and keep them out of sight and in a safe place
  • Fit sturdy deadlocks (British Standard BS3621) to all doors
  • Make sure your doors and frames are strong and in good condition - wood doors should be at least 44mm thick
  • Mark your property - having it marked helps police verify it's been stolen
  • Fit a door chain or bar and door viewer (spy-hole), and use them.
  • Never leave a spare key in a convenient hiding place such as under the doormat, in a flowerpot or behind a loose brick - thieves know to look there first
  • When you are out in the evening, leave your lights on and shut the curtains
  • Install outside security lighting; if other people can see your property a burglar may think twice
  • Keep your tools and ladders securely locked up – a burglar could use them to get into your house
