Though your front door plays a pivotal role in welcoming guests into your home, it can also serve as the entry point for unwanted visitors. The majority of home break-ins occur through the front door, which has several vulnerable parts. In this article, you will find methods for minimizing front door break-ins by strengthening the door’s weakest points and buying the right hardware.

强化锁硬件

您的前门的锁硬件可以制造或破坏房屋的安全性。如果您的锁硬件具有一定的固有缺陷,可以被窃贼利用,那么您的整体安全性就有风险。

大多数库存的圆柱锁都通过钻孔穿过门本身的一部分,将孔插入门上,从而削弱了门。这为小偷和其他攻击者提供了明确的目标。

房主可以添加金属门和锁的增强器这样可以防止小偷打破锁周围的区域,以使他们陷入困境。金属门和锁的增强剂由一系列金属制成,包括黄铜,铁和不锈钢。金属越强,它将承受的力越多。

Buy the Right Lock Cylinder

Your door’s lock cylinder can be attacked in several ways. Burglars can attempt drilling, bumping, or picking the lock. If your door lock cylinder does not have internal features to guard against these kinds of attacks, a burglar can bypass your front door locks and thwart your home security relatively easily.

High-security door lock cylinders usually have mechanisms that reduce the probability of a successful lock picking, lock bumping, or lock drilling attack. If you understand锁定的基础知识, it will be easier to comprehend the methods of prevention.

窃贼在有限的时间内工作,因此您的锁定越具有挑战性,越好。使用使用安全销和晶圆的高安全性锁缸的使用是使您的锁非常具有挑战性的最佳方法。

理想情况下,您的锁缸也应具有防撞和抗钻头功能。在锁内,内部和外缸之间有一条“剪切线”。锁定撞击是通过强行推动剪切线上的销钉来起作用的,而钻孔以破坏性的方式靶向剪切线。防钻锁将利用专门制作的钢插件,使钻头从圆柱体上瞥了一眼。此外,房主应确保他们的高安全性锁缸总是与高安全性的螺栓配对,这也可以承受蛮力的攻击。

Fortify Door Hinges

Door hinges keep your door hung properly on the frame and are an integral part of overall door infrastructure. However, they present a unique vulnerability. If burglars are not able to bypass your door locks, they will most likely target your door hinges. An attack on your door hinges can potentially dislodge your entire door or pull out the frame, giving burglars easy access to your home.

门铰链有两种品种:向内朝向和向外面。向内朝向门铰链通常更能抵抗攻击,因为铰链无法访问。房主需要保持警惕,因为盗贼和罪犯很容易挫败他们,因此面对铰链。

To shore up this vulnerability, you can change the direction your door opens so that it utilizes inward facing hinges. This can be a tough job to carry out, especially if you are not a seasoned do-it-yourselfer.

一个更好的选择是提高您已经拥有的铰链的安全性。这通常涉及添加一些对安全性产生重大影响的次要组件。使用增强的安全螺柱,波纹销和3英寸固定螺钉的使用将使您的门铰链损坏更加困难。

加强罢工板

The strike plate is an additional piece of metal meant to hold the lock bolt in place where it enters the door frame. The use of a strike plate is a great way to reinforce the overall security of your lock, but if your strike plate is not properly installed, it will ultimately do very little in a brute force attack. If a door doesn’t have a properly-installed strike plate, burglars can easily kick down your door or pry the lock bolt out of the door jamb.

加强罢工板的理想方法是确保将其用长螺钉牢固地连接到门凸束及其相邻的门框。长螺钉会咬入支撑JAMB的螺柱。

当踢门时,最有可能的失败点将是罢工板 - 螺钉仅在框架上撕裂,打碎了固定螺栓的材料。但是更长的螺钉(至少长2到3英寸)不会无裂。这个简单的过程增加了您的安全性十倍。

最后的想法

增加你的前门的安全是一个essential task that all homeowners have to consider at some point, but always keep in mind that there are other additional alternatives that bolster your security as well. For instance, the use of安全fences,家庭安全警报系统有效的照明all go a long way to keep your home more secure.
