When it comes to looking after your home and family, many things can be done to help keep them secure. The most common solutions would be to install deadlocks, integrate a CCTV system or to even invest in some high-quality window locks. Although these are all great options for helping to create a safe and secure home, there is still more that can be done.
More often than not, a lot of people miss out on some very effective ways of improving their home security purely because they’re not familiar with the terminology. For example, if you were to read an article that was titled ‘door reinforcement locks help to save another home’, chances are you wouldn’t be entirely sure what that particular product is. Due to this issue, there are many residents sticking to the most common forms of securing their home and neglecting other methods which could even possibly be more effective.

Using Door Reinforcement Locks to create a safe and secure home
A door reinforcement lock is an additional piece of security which can be added on to almost any door. With a door reinforcement lock, you can help to increase the amount of kicking force that door can handle by around 363kg. This increase in resistance could mean the difference between a burglar entering your home or not.
How do you install a Door Reinforcement Lock?
Unless you’re a qualified locksmith or builder, it’s generally not recommended installing your own door reinforcement lock. However straight forward the process may be, any mistakes made could potentially lead to a failing product in the future. In order to mitigate as many risks as possible, it’s crucial that this process is performed correctly from the start.
