Most burglars enter a home through a door or window, and generally will spend no more than 60 seconds trying to get in. Installing more secure locks on doors and windows is a first line of defense against burglary.

A standard window lock is designed more to keep the elements out (not intruders). For around $3 a piece, you can replace a standard window lock with a sturdier sash lock.

All exterior doors should have deadbolt locks installed. For doors that include a glass window, be sure to install the type of deadbolt that is keyed on both sides. A deadbolt that has just a latch on the inside offers little protection in this situation, since a burglar could easily break the glass, reach through and unlatch the lock from the inside.

When installing the strike plate for deadbolt locks, be certain to use 3-inch (or longer) mounting screws to ensure that the strike plate is secured into the wall-stud, not just the door-jamb.

Sliding door locks are devices in which the shackle has sliding cooperation with the body of the padlock and is not bodily removable from the body. It is a locking system which allows sliding doors to totally slide apart to provide a fantastic panorama when opened wide. It is best suited in terms of security.

Special sliding-glass door locks are inexpensive and help add security to sliding doors. Double French-doors can be very flimsy, and some can be opened simply by pushing hard even when locked. Add slide-rod locks to the top and bottom of one or both of the doors to prevent French doors from being an easy entry point for intruders.

Another right secure product are padlocks. A padlock is a portable locking unit or entity comprising a body containing lock mechanism, such body having a shackle, link or bolt adapted for releasable securement to the conventional structure, one portion of the shackle, link or bolt cooperating with the lock to prevent unauthorized or surreptitious removal or separation of one or more parts of the shackle, link or bolt.
