A clear majority of Americans (68%) say that crime is rising in the USA, essentially very similar to the 70% from last year. This level of pessimism is not unusual.

Is your home safe?

In recent years we have witnessed a very worrisome phenomenon, as burglars in the United States are becoming more and more sophisticated and with simple tools they are getting into apartments with lightning speed. It’s no secret that most homes in the US still have old locks that were installed many years ago and are not adapted to today’s technology. These old locks are easily broken into by a growing number of criminals.

Today everyone can learn to break into the lock in minutes by watching videos and other video sites that teach you the possibilities and guide what tools to use, in order to break into ordinary locks of apartments and vehicles. Almost every day today, there are newspaper articles reporting injuries resulting from confrontations with burglars. For example:

“Man suffers head injury after being hit during aggravated burglary”.

The best solution is to install high security locks.

Surprisingly, thanks to improved technology and lots of supply, manufacturers of locks lowered their prices and today it is possible to purchase a very powerful lock, including installation at prices that anyone can afford between $ 150-300.

Most high security locks use certain designs or characteristics, that improve their ability to resist mobilization and forced entry for a given amount of time. The main goal of all high security locks is not to be undefeatable, but instead to make the breaking in – too expensive or time consuming.

Among the leading companies that manufacture such locks are ASSA Abloy, Kaba Group, Kwikset, Medeco, Mul-T-Lock and many other good companies.
