Everyone has a lock on their door the question is will that lock keep a burglar or intruder out of your home. There are two ways to get into a locked door. Burglars will kick in the back door or use a bump key to get into a home. 

Stop a Burglar from Kicking in Your Door

How do you stop someone from kicking in the door? You have to reinforce your door jams weakest part the doorknob area. You can use the Door Armor product to help stop someone from kicking in your door. 

This is a really great product that I use and it can stop a burglar from entering your home through a door. Let’s look at some of the things this Door Armor can do.

  • THE ULTIMATE DOOR REINFORCER: Door Armor MAX is a 3-piece door reinforcement kit that makes even an ordinary door into a barrier that can’t be breached even using battering rams and other tools.
  • DIY HOME SECURITY FOR EVERYONE: You don’t need to only rely on a home security system to keep your home safe. Anyone can install the Door Armor MAX with a power drill and 30 minutes of time. Detailed instructions included in your order.
  • $500 LIFETIME SATISFACTION GUARANTEED: If someone breaks through a door reinforced with the Door Armor MAX, Armor Concepts will refund your purchase and send you a $500 check. That’s how confident we are in this product.
  • MAKE YOUR HOME YOUR CASTLE: Door Armor works by reinforcing the weak points in your door. Even a 12-year-old can kick down the typical front door. Door Armor MAX works by reinforcing the area around the lock, the jamb, and the hinges
  • PREVENTING ENTRY PREVENTS BURGLARY AND HOME INVASION: Over 75% of burglars enter through the front door. Preventing home entry prevents burglary and dangerous confrontations with criminals.

Door locks to stop Key Bumping

You may be asking what is lock bumping or what a 999/rapping key is. This is the process where criminals take a special key,  using a bumping technique to unlock cylinder and deadbolt locks.

Let’s look at the Some Key Information:

  • With a bump key, a criminal can open your door in less than 15 seconds
  • This will not show any signs of forced entry, so you would not know if someone robbed you until you noticed the items were missing
  • Lock bumping is so easy that even kids can do it
  • These bump keys can be easily bought online or made quickly

Bump Resistant Dead Bolt Lock

This would be the first thing you would want to do to secure your doors from a thief using a bump key. These high-security cylinders are much harder to use a bump key to open. The UL rating on these locks is 437. The manufacturers have started by adding anti bump pins to the cylinders to make bumping harder. Another measure has been to drill one of the pin stacks shallower than the others making it very difficult for the bump key to bump that pin to open the lock. You can check out this lock Dead Bolt Single Cylinder Keyed – Grade 2.
