Medeco Locks Come Under Scrutiny

Recent Stories Show that Some High-End Locks Can Be Picked or Bumped
The economy is in tatters and unemployment is skyrocketing. Now more than ever people should be worried about burglars stealing their worldly possessions.

A recent report by Garner News showed that burglaries were the top crimes in June 2009. They recommended that people haveDead-bolt Locks deadbolt locks that have at least a one-and-a-half-inch throw.

If you do not have as much trust for banks as you used to, you may be storing more cash and valuables at home. This makes you an even bigger target for thieves.

getting a professional locksmith can be helpful to get the job done.

 

Maybe you have an alarm system and deadbolt locks but often criminals only need a few seconds to break into your home. That front-door lock is easier to pick or “bump” than you think.

 

Recently ReadersDigest.com published an article that showed that all a crook has to do is buy a “bump key” and “bump hammer” and get past your dead-bolt in less than a minute. This may be true, but it requires a lot of skill and forethought by your common criminal, the type of person without much skill and forethought in the first place because he has to resort to becoming a burglarizing thief in the night. And if he had these skills, he would probably use them in some sort of profession.

Reader’s Digest then provided a list of recommended high-end locks that should offer more protection from break-ins, such as Master Locks and Medeco High Security Locks.

 

 

Back in May, Wired.com set up some tests to see if their super-sleuth Marc Weber Tobias could “bump” or pick one of the special Medeco locks. Sure enough, their expert was able to do so.

To be fair to Medeco, the expert used by Wired.com was obviously a highly-skilled professional who had years of experience. Your common criminal or thief will have nowhere near this level of expertise and will give up rather quickly and use a window instead. Medeco has offered videos on preventing “key bumping.”

No lock can ever by 100 percent foolproof, because if a criminal wants to rob you and get your money there is not much you can do to stop him, especially if you are away from home.

High unemployment and desperate times bring out the worst in thieves and robbers so be extra vigilant about the things happening in your neighborhood and contact the authorities if you suspect anything suspicious.

 

If your doors are sturdy and strong there is less of a chance that an intruder will take the time to break in to your home. Make suredoors for homes that all entry doors into the main house should be made of metal or solid wood and the thickness should be at least 1.75″. Check if door frames are secure – there should be no gaps between the door and door frame.

 

These safety tips are not only good to provide protection for your home and children. They can also be applied to a business. Alarms are also a good way to protect your home. They may include security alarms and smoke alarms. Preparing your home or business with these tips in mind will keep your family, your home or business safe.…
