Thief in Hull, East Yorkshire Locksmiths

It’s that time of year again when we adjust to it getting darker even earlier in the evening, thanks to the clocks going back. It may be lighter in the mornings, at least for a while, but the change is known to lead to an increase in burglaries.

You may not be keen on going out in the dark, but you definitely should be keen on making sure your property is locked up safely, whether you’re inside or out. That’s because properties are more likely to be broken into at this time of year, right through the winter months. Burglars can work more easily under cover of darkness, which means it’s all the more important to make sure your property is secure.

With that in mind, it might be prudent to get your locks checked. Can you be sure they are strong enough to withstand casual attempts at people trying to get in? Can you be certain you have the best locks you can get, or do you already know your locks leave something to be desired?

Whatever position you’re in, someone from Pixlocks can pay a visit and check all your locks – even those on your windows. After all, some burglars do gain entry through windows and not just through doors. If they see a weak spot, you can be sure they’ll take advantage of it.
