Protect Your Home & Business from Burglaries with Brass Locks

The holiday season usually brings thoughts of joy, family and friend gatherings, and lots of presents. Sadly, the holiday season also brings an increase in the crime rate, particularly break-ins and theft.

According to statistics from the Department of Justice, most break-ins are committed by criminals who come right through the front door. Thus, it’s imperative to secure your home and/or business with a brass door lock. Now, this doesn’t mean that brass locks can’t be picked; it means it will take extra time for a burglar to pick a brass lock than a regular lock, which will most likely deter the burglar from entering the home.

It is commonly known that break-ins occur mostly in homes, but it is not unheard of that companies experience break-ins as well. Let’s face it, office equipment such as computers, printers, and scanners are costly, and burglars can hock such equipment for money.

Statistics on the Most Common Points of Entry into a Burglarized Home?

Reports show that the most common points of entry into a burglarized home are:

  • 34% of burglars enter through the front door of a home
  • 22% of burglars break into a home through a back door
  • 9% of burglars enter through the homeowner’s garage door
  • 4% of burglars get in a home through an unlocked door
  • Break-ins are more likely to occur during the day between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. while people are at work or running errands
