Warning – burglars like letterboxes!!!
Do you have this kind of lock?
You can easily stop night time burglaries by DEADLOCKING your doors. If your door works like the picture opposite, turning the key makes the door secure.
Remove the keys to a safe place that the family know, in case of emergency
IF THEY CAN SEE YOUR KEYS THEY CAN STEAL YOUR CAR
Do not let this happen to you. The burglar can knock down the handle through the letterbox.
A metal letter box guard can stop a burglar reaching through to the inside door handle, or fit a cage inside your door to catch your post and help prevent burglars.
Always dial 999 in an emergency.
