Lock your doors!
Make sure you have a dead bolt!
Lock your gates!
This may not be your choice of locks! A Master Lock will do!
Cut the handle!
Once this opener is installed, there is a cord that is attached to the mechanism that you can pull to disable the door opener and lift the door manually. When the door is closed, the mechanism is closest to the door. There is usually a little handle attached to the cord. Cut the handle off! Crooks reach inside the door with a coat hanger and release the mechanism (at the top) and gain acces to your garage and home! ***Tip from an alarm salesman!
Got a Panic Button on your key ring???
Set your car keys next to you when you go to bed at night. If you hear someone breaking in, push the panic button! Neighbors from a block away will hear it! It could just scare them away!!!
Keep Garage Doors CLOSED!
Close your garage door every time you go into the house! Check it before you go to bed.
Leave NOTHING in your cars!
Take in your garage door opener when you go in your house every time. CD's and GPS' are just what they want, even prowling kids!
Get an alarm system!
This sign may be a joke, but crime is not! Call any one of a dozen companies for installation! Check them out first!

If an alarm salesman comes by and wants to "check your system", don't let him in! They want to change your system. Just tell them you are under contract!
These are great to add a little light to your alley!
These are solar pathway lights. The Planchons put them on their back fence to add alittle light! I went to www.harborfreight.com and typed in solar lights. There are a number of different lights, but these can be mounted right on the fence. You can get 4 for under $30 and they are quite bright! If several neighbors on one block would install them, it would light these dark alleys up a bit!
These are just a few tips to consider when trying to protect your family & home!
