This little paragraph was intended as a tip for collectors of valuable items but it really applies to all of us...
Locks are important "security systems." Half of all break-ins are through doors that are left unlocked. Keep the house locked as much as possible--always when you are out, often when you are in. Never give a key to a workman, cleaning service, or anyone you do not know well. If you send your child to school with a key, be sure it is kept on a chain that does not have your address on it. Check on the new locks that can be opened by a combination or the newest that can be opened by a remote-control system. Add deadbolt locks well below or above the level of any window in the door so a thief can't break the window and reach in and unlock the door. Change the locks if you move into a new home. Don't leave the windows unlocked and don't hide a key under the doormat or above the door.
