According to the Burglary Prevention Council, “23% of all home break-ins occur through first floor windows”, while an additional “4% of all break-ins occur through basement access and window wells”. That’s over a quarter of all break-ins. The estimated number of break-ins that occur nationwide is 2,143,456. That’s roughly $578,733 lost in home break-ins.
These break-ins can easily be avoided if proper measures are put in place to stop intruders cold. One such way would be to install our Secure Lock System – which is a small lock placed under the window well cover (inside the window well). The window well is locked and the intruder needs to find another way in. More tips for securing your home can be found at http://www.burglaryprevention.org/
