    If you own a home or you’re even just thinking about renting a home or apartment in the future, keep this key security tip in mind.

    This tip that we just came across is reinforcing the strike plate on your front door. Take a look at the video above to see what we’re talking about.

    Instead of using the three-quarter inch screws that locks typically come with, you can use No. 8 three-inch screws that will actually drive into the studs of the doorframe. This will make the lock much more sturdy in the event that someone tries to break into your property. Those tiny screws that the lock comes with don’t go very far into the doorframe and make the lock easier to simply kick in.

     

    Added security for a low cost.

     

    If you’re thinking about home security, we work with a company called Advanced Protection that brokers a bunch of security companies and they have a ton of great resources. If you’d like to learn more, we’d love to give you some more info. Unlike a security company like ADT, you have many different security options and levels of service.
