No one in our neighborhood has problems, now that the people who used to own our home have moved. I often don’t look the door of my house. (Which is amazing, considering how paranoid I used to be.)
But this article on the worthlessness of locks makes me wonder if I shouldn’t do something else.
I especially was creeped out by the commenter who said that this is important because someone could get in your house and wait for you and you wouldn’t know they were there.
My doors are locked – always. Of course anyone could kick in our front door. I would like to fix that but I would have to tear out the entire front entry to remove the thin wood between the door and the little window panel next to it.
I did finally get a deadbolt on the back door.
