Thieves are using stickers advertising a fictitious local locksmith company to mark homes which are an 'easy target'. The criminals carry out a preliminary reconnaissance on the area and mark houses which are deemed as having poor security measures in place. They later return to break into the houses which have already been marked as targets. The authorities are advising residents to remove the stickers immediately if they see any on their doors or windows.

There are several good reasons why you should consider choosing LockRite when looking for a locksmith in Himley.
There are many factors to consider when choosing a locksmith in Himley. Our checklist below should help you when making a decision.
Many of Britain’s van drivers could be putting themselves at risk of theft without the correct level of insurance cover according to a survey by a leading insurance comparison website. Approximately 65% of van owners surveyed, which included many small businesses, said they used their vans to transport tools, goods or equipment and over half of those surveyed said they left items in their vehicles overnight. Approximately 10% of those surveyed also admitted to selecting the 'social only' insurance level to reduce insurance costs which would not be adequate for a business/commercial insurance claim.

If you are a homeowner, the safety of your home is probably something that is constantly on your mind. After all, you have probably worked hard to have your home in the first place. However, do you know what it takes to secure your home at all times? If not, this article can help guide you. Never allow anyone in your home that claims to be a sales representative. Many thieves use this as a way to get inside. They may try to gain entry to see if there is anything valuable in clear sight, then they will come back later when they think no one is home. Children's rooms and basements make good hiding places for valuables. When a burglar enters a home, they usually target the living areas for electronics and the master bedroom for jewelry and other valuables. Children's rooms filled with toys and basements used to store 'junk' are of little use to intruders and are usually passed over completely. Install timers on your indoor lights. If you are planning on being away from home after dark, timers can make your home look occupied. This is especially useful if you are planning a vacation or other extended stay away from home. Make sure the timer is set differently in each room, as all the lights turning on at once does not look natural. If you are planning on going on vacation, you need to hire someone to look after your home. Savvy thieves know what to look for when scouting out homes to rob. Uncut grass, newspapers piled up on the doorstep and unshoveled snow on the side walk are all signs that a homeowner is away on vacation. In conclusion, as a homeowner, keeping your home safe and secure is more than likely a major priority for you. Since you have read the above article, you know what it takes to secure your home properly. Use these tips and you will never have to worry about keeping your home safe again.
When calling a locksmith it is important to know what type of lock needs fixing or replacing. Use our visual guide below to identify your particular lock type.
The latest UK crime statistics show an alarming rise in vehicle thefts involving the use of a key with 25 percent of all stolen vehicles now being taken with the original key or a cloned copy. It is important to lock your car, even when kept in a garage, and ensure your car keys are kept out of sight from the opportunist thief as a car which is stolen with the use of a key is unlikely to be covered in the event of an insurance claim.
As autumn approaches and the temperatures start to drop the nights start closing in. Unfortunately darker evenings mean more opportunities for burglars so it's essential to look at your home security and make sure it's up to the job. Anti snap locks, deadbolts and window locks will help to prevent most opportunist thieves and security lighting will deter intruders.
If you are unsure how secure your home is, call your local LockRite Himley locksmith today on 01384 510102 to arrange a home security survey.
As summer approaches and the days get warmer it is natural to leave windows open and doors ajar to keep homes cooler. Unfortunately this can be an open invitation to the "sneak-in" opportunist burglar who will take advantage of open doors and windows and make off with small, expensive items such as mobile phones and laptops, or even a set of house keys to return later when the house is empty or everyone is asleep.
If a burglary takes place without any visible signs of forced entry it can invalidate insurance claims, so it is important to remain security concious in the summer. One way to help prevent "sneak-in" burglaries is to install door security chains and window restrictors. This allows doors and windows to be left open slightly while offering enough security to deter an opportunist thief.
Call your local Himley locksmith on 01384 510102 today to discuss your home security needs.

The dangers of lock snapping were recently discussed on the One Show (7th March 2012) and the advice is to ensure the locks on your uPVC doors are designed to withstand this kind of forced entry.
Lock snapping is a technique used by burglars where uPVC locks are literally snapped in half allowing quick access to your property. Unfortunately this type of forced entry is becoming more and more commonplace, and many homes with uPVC doors in the Himley area are susceptible to this kind of attack unless the locks have been upgraded with anti-snap cylinders.
We can provide anti-snap, anti-bump and anti-pick locks for your doors. Call us now on 01384 510102 for a free, no obligation quote.
