 Caledon OPP would like the residents to consider the following inexpensive crime prevention strategies to add extra door security to their home:

• Door lock reinforcers – are positioned around your door’s existing lock for added security against picking or breaking the lock to force entry. They’re often portable and easy to install by simply snapping into place around the lock;

• Door jammers – are the most common front door security measure. They are made of plastic or steel and placed on the floor less than an inch from the door at an angle that latches to the doorknob to stay in place. Door jammers are often pressure-mounted to be portable and easy to remove in the event of an emergency;

• Door security bar – is often placed across the middle of the door to prevent burglars from pushing the door. Some are hardware-mounted, while others are easy to install with pressure-mounting for sliding doors, traveling and apartments. Door security bars are often adjustable to fit the door’s width perfectly.

• Deadbolt locks – they add additional security by only opening with a rotating key without the spring most standard locks have.
