Does your home or conservatory have patio doors that look like French doors?
These ones are considered safer than the sliding ones as many people know.
Please check the hinges of yours.
There normally is a pin which drops down the hinge on which the door opens and shuts.
This pin is placed in by gravity but there is a tiny screw which pierces this pin at a 90 degree angle which keeps this pin from being removed.
If this pin is not there, or is in loosely, it takes a thief no time at all to remove the pin and remove your door.
PLEASE CHECK this pin and screw or get someone to do it for you.
A nieghbour of mine got robbed yesterday in this fashion. The houses on our estate are no more than 3 yrs old and all have these types of doors installed. Of about 12 properties checked, all of these screws were loose except ours.
We have proper french doors which are handmade and ours are fine, I just checked. But I have to say, I broke into our house at the weekend because we were locked out - I managed to use a pole to drag the pram that was on the other side of the conservatory to the catflap and get spare keys out the bag pocket of it to get in. Which wiped my smug grin about my 'very secure' house off my face.
Checked mine and they are ok but I still think ours would be easier than some to get into but then I dare any burglar to get through my 2 dogs 1st
(actually my dogs would probably lick them to death but the burglar wouldn't know that!)
