Hi friends,
Here are a few tips on how to maximize your security by using the right locks:
1. Have secure front door locks with deadbolts
2. Secure the entry and exit doors with decorative grille that has no removable screws
3. Install a peephole in the doors
4. Secure gate latches and garage and shed doors with sturdy padlocks
Install a good alarm system at home to monitor the house.

An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. So get your houses secured with good quality locks. You must always the contact details of an emergency locksmith who can be approached in a case of emergency because door locks are important for safekeeping and privateness.

Don't forget the door itself and the door jamb. Even the most secure lock is useless if the door and it's surrounding structure are easily smashed.

I second stusviews. Many years ago I was involved with security and saw quite a few sophisticated systems easily by-passed by a brick through their lights.

Thanks for sharing. But I was heard that some locations in USA, the burglar most likely break in with brick through their windows? Is that true?
