No matter how safe and secure your house is, burglars always find a way out to break in. Yes, there's no telling when your house is next on their list. People assume that their houses are safe, even when they are in their house. But there is no way one could be 'too careful' with the security measures.
But it is not always that the security measures can prove out to be effective against every possible trick burglars have in their hand. This is exactly why you need to learn everything about protecting your home from the intruders. Things like taking down the door or breaking through the window seem like the things that are bound to the big screen. But in real life, these, and many others are more common than you might think.
An intimidating and disturbing incidence broke out about how the burglars have geared up and coined a new trick up their sleeve to raid in your houses.
Kim told that she heard an unexpected knock on her door. Initially, she thought to open the door, but something felt suspicious. She didn't open the door, and after several knocks the person on the door left.
Even with the installation of the most advanced technological security system, you could be at risk. That is why this Facebook post which is focused on such a problem has recently gone viral attracting people across the globe.
She noticed something strange on the handle of the front door -- a rubber band was holding the door latch in a way that it stays open even when you'd close it.
The post said, "Two weeks ago, during the day, a hard knock was at my front door, not a regular knock but almost pounding…and I DO NOT answer the door when I am here by myself."
Adding, "The Sheriff came by yesterday and said this is happening all of a sudden, as soon as you unlatch the door, they do not wait for you to turn the knob, they can bust in on you."
When the person left, Kim went on to investigate the scene.
In her post, Kim suggested not to answer doors unless you know who is on the other side.

An unmade bed indicates that someone is still home.
Yes, criminals may get nervous if light shines on them. So motion sensing lights can be effective if you have to stop the heist.
Playing bluff can be really helpful in many situations. Many of those who are trying to break-in into houses prefer to be careful. These signs can protect your house by removing it from their 'hit-list'.
Another tip that you can implement is that it's important to stay armed at such a point. You can be barged in and be overpowered on any day. If you keep yourselves prepared, you can end up taking the situation under control.
Keeping your precious items among toys increases it's chance to be missed by the robbers. If you can't afford the security, at least you can be witty enough to come up with hacks like these.
Stronger the door, harder to break-in. It's quite real for people to break the door down to enter your houses. Make it hard enough and maybe they'll break their legs and shoulders instead.
Burglars will always be coming up with one trick or another to hop on in your houses. This 'Rubberband' trick might or might not be the most terrifying, but taking these preventions under consideration have a guarantee to keep you safe.
