Fresno Locksmith - Burglar Outside Home

Don't be a Victim

Below is a checklist of actions to take to secure your home.

  1. Do exterior lights illuminate all entrances to your home?
  2. Is shrubbery kept trimmed so a burglar can’t hide near windows and doors?
  3. Are garage doors kept closed and locked at all times?
  4. Are exterior doors made of solid core construction (including door leading from garage to house)?
  5. Is there a peephole viewer (1800) on the front door?
  6. Are sliding glass doors secured with auxiliary locks or pinned, and are screws in the track to prevent removal of doors?
  7. Are exterior doors secured with a deadbolt lock (single or double cylinder) with a minimum 1 inch throw
  8. Are windows secured with auxiliary keyed locks or pinned with a nail?
  9. Do you report suspicious persons or activity in the neighborhood to the police immediately?
  10. Are doors locked at all times?
  11. Are your valuables marked with your  driver’s license number and do you have a record of them with complete serial number, make and model?
