Making Your Property Safer
Sometimes people think that it’s pointless to make small improvements. Strengthening home or business security might seem an expensive and somewhat complex action. Remember the process does not have to be overbearing. If your goal is to protect your property, you can do it one step at a time. Security upgrades are just so important and the truth is even minor upgrades have a considerable effect in the short and long run. For example, getting yourself a high-security lock may be the most brilliant idea when it comes to your safety. Most pin-tumbler locks, master locks, etc., can be tampered with. This unfortunate feature may make your home attractive to perpetrators. Most professional thieves can recognize different lock types, so they know how well you are protected by only taking a quick look.
Let’s take a quick abridged lesson about what high-security locks are and whether you need them. Sure Lock & Key is always ready to give you a hand when challenging locksmith questions appear!
What Are High-Security Locks
- High-quality materials
Manufacturers use metals that will withstand hard impact. That’s why security locks for doors are much heavier than others.
- Pick and Drill resistant
Burglars choose this method to access your home or office since it provides easy and quick access to the premises. Anti-drill plates and steel ball-bearings are used in drill-resistant locks to protect them from breaking. In other words, overcoming this type of lock is so complicated that it’s deemed not worth the time and effort for the potential intruder.
Certain bump-proof locks are resistant to bumping, as their mechanisms don’t operate with pin tumblers or their pin stacks have additional components that minimize the risk of being bumped.
