Plenty of Glass, But They Still Kick In the Door

Another break-in caught on tape. Glass panel door, but they still kick it in.

Another Break-in Video.

Again, a couple of kicks to the door and they are in. Altic Lock Service recommends the Door Devil to protect your home from this very common method of entry.

Lessons from a Break-in

There are many lessons to be learned from this break-in.

First, with all that glass there, the burglars still opted for kicking in a door. By far, that is the most common method of illegal entry.

Second, alarms and videos are all well and good, but they do nothing to prevent break-ins.

Third, burglars are in and out before police can respond.

Fourth, the quality of the locks on the door makes little difference - it was the door jamb that gave way.

Fifth, the most effective single step you can take to prevent break-ins is to reinforce the door frame in order to prevent, or at least slow down, a break-in attempt or home invasion. That is why we carry and heartily recommend the Door Devil.
