Recent Stockport Burglary

Several house burglaries have been reported this year in the Stockport area. One of these incidents, reported on by the Manchester Evening News, caused the frightened homeowner to flee through an open window to raise the alarm. The burglar broke into the property through patio doors at the rear of the property before attempting to steal cash and keys while the occupants were still inside.

Read more about this break in.

It can be difficult to prevent a burglar from breaking glass patio doors in your home, but there are many things that can be done to help deter a burglar from choosing your property as a target. For example, installing a burglar alarm; according to Yale UK, 84% of imprisoned burglars said they would not willingly enter a building where an alarm was fitted. CCTV can also prove very useful as a prevention but will also aid in finding the suspect if the burglary was caught on camera. There are also less expensive preventative measures, such as installing lights in your garden on motion sensors, installing light timers when you're aware from home, keeping valuables out of sight so they're not easily seen by passers by, keeping your garage and shed locked and more... For a list of useful home security tips, take a look at our Top 10 Home Security Tips

Thieves Targeting Houses With Locksmith Stickers

Thieves are using stickers advertising a fictitious local locksmith company to mark homes which are an 'easy target'. The criminals carry out a preliminary reconnaissance on the area and mark houses which are deemed as having poor security measures in place. They later return to break into the houses which have already been marked as targets. The authorities are advising residents to remove the stickers immediately if they see any on their doors or windows.

Is your home secure? Call us today on 01457 600 542 to arrange a security check on your premises.

Tips For Choosing a Locksmith in Buxton

There are many factors to consider when choosing a locksmith in Buxton. Our checklist below should help you when making a decision.

  • Check the locksmith is DBS (CRB) checked. This will reveal whether they have a hidden criminal past. You need someone you can trust working with your home security, so if they do not have a clean DBS (CRB) check walk away.

  • Check the price quoted is what you will pay. Many locksmiths will quote one price on the phone only to bump the price up dramatically once the work has been undertaken. Make sure you know what you will be paying before work commences and sign something agreeing to the charges.

  • Make sure you are happy with what the locksmith says regarding your home security and don't be pressurised into an expensive upsell. Not all locks are equal, and some cheaper locks do not provide adequate security for home insurance purposes so make sure if you're having new locks installed they are right for you.

  • Always use a trusted locksmith with a decent reputation and accountability. There are many rogue traders who just want to rip customers off. Check their websites for testimonials and guarantees. If anything looks or feels dodgy, walk away and find another locksmith.

  • Call their advertised number and see how long it takes them to answer. If calls are left ringing with no answer or diverts to voicemail numerous times it could indicate they will be difficult to get hold of if there is a problem with their work. Use a locksmith who answers their phone!

Hopefully this checklist will help you to choose the best Buxton locksmith for your needs.

All LockRite locksmiths are DBS (CRB) checked and will always confirm the price you will pay before commencing any work.

Home Security in the Summer Months

As summer approaches and the days get warmer it is natural to leave windows open and doors ajar to keep homes cooler. Unfortunately this can be an open invitation to the "sneak-in" opportunist burglar who will take advantage of open doors and windows and make off with small, expensive items such as mobile phones and laptops, or even a set of house keys to return later when the house is empty or everyone is asleep.

If a burglary takes place without any visible signs of forced entry it can invalidate insurance claims, so it is important to remain security concious in the summer. One way to help prevent "sneak-in" burglaries is to install door security chains and window restrictors. This allows doors and windows to be left open slightly while offering enough security to deter an opportunist thief.

Call your local Buxton locksmith on 01457 600 542 today to discuss your home security needs.

Lock Snapping on 'The One Show'

The dangers of lock snapping were recently discussed on the One Show (7th March 2012) and the advice is to ensure the locks on your uPVC doors are designed to withstand this kind of forced entry.

Lock snapping is a technique used by burglars where uPVC locks are literally snapped in half allowing quick access to your property. Unfortunately this type of forced entry is becoming more and more commonplace, and many homes with uPVC doors in theBuxton areaare susceptible to this kind of attack unless the locks have been upgraded with anti-snap cylinders.

We can provide anti-snap, anti-bump and anti-pick locks for your doors. Call us now on 01457 600 542 for a free, no obligation quote.
